To get a better overview of the Hastings Aerodrome Manager Kevin England asked if I (Tim Whittaker) could get images and video using the Photodrone. It was very windy and on the boarder of being flyable but as all the planes were lined up we gave it a go. Hawkes Bay Today photographer Glenn Taylor on the camera controls for the first time did a great job!
Well done, competitions team!
We have a big team successfully through the regional competitions at Paraparaumu and off to the Nationals at Tauranga later this summer. It sounds like our Wigram Cup team had a neck and neck race but clinched it on points countback. Nothing like some stiff competition to help practice for the Nationals.
Talk to Club Captain Glenn Riddell if you want to join the fun and head along to Tauranga as a supporter.
