Hi Folks
great time had up at Loch Fyne
A few hover ups with the Hawk but so many teething problems getting all three engines running concurrently proved too much.
Very worthwhile visit to discover the limitations of the craft and see what falls off simply trailing it around.
The experience of running it away from the comfort of the factory gave so much info, compiled with the help and knowledge of the club members there I now have a plan to get the craft actually sea worthy over the next few weeks.
Re threading the throttle cables is going to be the least fun task.
Good news is the parts list to fix will be very reasonable.
Total amazement at the corrosion suffered on the'marinised' cables and electrics!

Loch Fyne 2019 The Film part 1
Please be aware this is part one and as such this is simply a record of what I have on my Phone, Camera and (later on)Drone footage.
Please be patient because there is MORE to come, shortly, and remember you probably have an "off" button should boredom take a hold.

Parts TWO and THREE of the recent Loch Fyne Hover extravaganza.---------->
I have divided this into two episodes, but those of you who enjoy "binge TV" may prefer the whole 15 minutes, without respite.

In THIS version, I have finally managed to extract the drone data, and transfer it to the editing suite, which has only crashed a few times.
Due to the fact I was unable LAST year to transfer some drone data, ---- towards the end of the video, there is a small selection from 2018, showing our craft in their ELEMENT. 

Please remember, this is simply MY record, and occasionally from other peoples phones that have left their pictures on my data stream. I have REALLY tried to include everyone, somewhere, but I "believe" the only person to attend who isn't featured is Georgie Tilley
so apologise for this. Tom, (who MUST get the hero medal earning the monicker-"Glasgow Tom") IS featured tho!
Thanks go to JR as ever for "not" hosting the event, but putting in huge effort and road miles anyway.
To every one ELSE, --- thanks for sharing again, and heres to more in the future.     ;) 

Some of the early drone video has not fared well in, in that I lost contact occasionally whilst a long way out, and its poor quality has only come to light whilst JUST viewing. Perhaps it is something to do with the computer crashing whilst under considerable stress?
Such is life. (well three days of it!)
