From the Editor.

This year has certainly flown with many successful events held over the past 12 months. Next years calendar is slowly filling with some must go to events coming up in the next few months. I would like to thank the outgoing committee and the new committee for their contributions over the past year and look forward to receiving some more interesting articles for the newsletter in the year to come. It is great to see some variety in the contributions to this edition even though it is only a smaller issue of 40 pages but I try to keep it interesting to the members. In this edition I would like to thank Gary Thornton and Margaret Sampson , the photographer for their article on the Slope fun fly event which was held at Laidley over the weekend of 6-7th November. Snippets were obtained from their RSSF “Lift” newsletter for which I thank Gary for his writing prowess . The newsletter is a very good one with great photos and if you would like to subscribe to this newsletter contact Gary Thornton of the Redbank Summerholm Silent Flyers .(RSSF) I almost forgot the ” very old timer” who advised me of the correction in the history of Ron deChastel . Thanks for providing an interesting insight of Ron’s involvement with the MAAA ,the MAAQ and other state associations through out his life. The last MAAQ meeting attracted one of the largest attendances of club representatives for some time. Many stayed for a coffee and a chat afterwards and most were home just on dark , due to the earlier meeting time. The earlier meeting time seems to have worked , rather than having it late in the afternoon tends to drag into late nights which the committee was wanting to change for the benefit of those who travel and wishing to get home before dark.

MAAQ Web Site. Don’t forget to check out the latest updated web site of MAAQ at www.maaq.org The new site has been given a bright new feel and look. This web site also shows some event flyers , due to sometimes limited available space in the newsletter , that are only listed in the calendar of events . A special international pylon event the “Ron deChastel Memorial “ is being held in Maryborough on 4,5 & 6th February . This flyer and event schedule is now on the web site. You may notice some snippets on modelling history in this edition. I would like to encourage the clubs or members of the clubs to submit snippets of history of their clubs or of their members for inclusion into the newsletters. Finally I would like to, on behalf of all the MAAQ committee wish all the members a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New 2011 Year ahead. Doug Moody Airflow Editor

NEXT MAAQ MEETING : 26TH FEBRUARY 2011 AT THE CHERMSIDE LIBRARY 375 HAMILTON ROAD CHERMSIDE . COMMENCING AT 2 PM.

Don’t forget, space is available in the newsletter free to members for use in wanting to buy, sell or swap. Email the editor for further information. airflow@maaq.org.


I would like to make a correction regarding the remembrance article in the last issue of AIRFLOW. Being a perfectionist, Ron would , I am sure, be pleased if I could make a correction regarding his presidency of the MAAQ. The information that I had obtained was from the “Pioneers of Model Aviation in Australia” book by John Marquette. Thanks to the old timer for picking up the mistake made in this history book .                                                                              RON de CHASTEL’S PRESIDENCY In the July/ Sept issue of AIRFLOW, it was incorrectly stated that Ron was MAAQ president from 1947 to 1950. Ron, being a perfectionist, would like his “ time in office “ to be spot on. ------ There was no MAAQ in 1947. In 1947, there were many clubs in Queensland ( Toowoomba, Maryborough, Bundaberg, Rockhampton, Mackay, and Townsville) but none in Brisbane. In 1948, a group of Brisbane modellers had a meeting, and formed a club. They decided that ( unlike the existing clubs) they would register with the MAAA. Registration was okayed, but their suggested name was knocked back. They were told that being the capital-city club, they would be named the Model Aeronautical Association of Queensland, and given the responsibility of registering all other clubs in Queensland, organising an annual State Champs weekend, etc. etc. The elected committee of this combined “club and state body”, were Jim Mulcahy- Contest Administrator / Harry Butler-Secretary Treasurer / Allen ThomasPresident. After more capital-city clubs came into existence in the late 1950’s, it was decided that it was undemocratic for the state’s administrative body to be an individual club, so the members of the original MAAQ ( all free-flighters ) reformed as the Brisbane Free Flighters club. In 1951, Arthur Gorrie, the founder of the Newtown Model Aeronautical Association ( a club mixing control-line and free-flight activities ) became the second MAAQ president.

His presidency lasted well into the 1960’s. Radio- control had, by then, become the most popular modelflying activity, and the time had come for the MAAQ president to be the leading light of the radio-control community. So Ron de Chastel became president. His term of office being 1967 – 1970. -Contributed by a very “ old timer “.

Kirby Kite in flight page 


TARMAC/MRSSA AERO -TOW EVENT TOOWOOMBA 16/17TH NOVEMBER Sunday was a great day with a good turn out after Saturdays unfriendly weather. Eighteen fine models and three tugs plus a few gorgeous moulded examples Desert Aircraft Australia bought out to display. Quite a lot of visitor’s dropped in for a look, with some very keen to try aerotowing at some point. The day went well with lots of great flights and friendly chit chat. Two models had maiden flights. A Kirby Kite which after a couple of tuning flights flew exceptionally well for a short nosed long tailed under-cambered Chinese made vintage scale model. The other model was Jille’s Ka4 Rhonlerche. Designed and built from scratch, beautifully executed and detailed. It was flying quite well after it’s couple of tuning flights. Aerotow is such a good way to test larger scalies. The weather was quite cool and gusty early in the morning contrary to the forecast, but it just got better and better. The thermals were huge, very cyclic and kept generating in the same places. Anyhow great day, good guys, more lessons learnt and more events coming up.

RSSF LAIDLEY SLOPE FUN FLY

partial extract from “Lift “ newsletter penned by Gary Thornton G’day Everybody Just have a close look at all those smiling faces. They certainly had something to smile about. Three perfect days of slope weather can you believe it. From out of that lousy grey soupy weather we had early in the week these three days arrived, bang on time for the weekend. Plan B had been formulated but the wisdom of Bill Bell shone through, we may have had an anxious evening Thursday night but when Fri morning broke it was on. Great Stuff!!!!! Rob and Aileen Wait, Karen and I enjoyed lunch together on Fri after preparing the runway and mowing the pathways. I watched Rob enjoy himself in some very nice lift before heading off shopping for the eats and drinks. Sat 4.00am weather check, PERFECT, e-mail LIFT LIST then packing. ETA slope 9.30am RW was all ready flying too good to be true. The morning unfolded from there with the steady arrival of visitors and RSSF members eager to have a fly. The lift was hard to find at first but plenty of thermals were about out over the valley. Peter O’Loughlin remarked the day had a big day feel and he was right, by 2.00pm I had all ready registered 18 visitors and 11 RSSF members were on site. My mobile phone kept ringing with people wanting to know if it was on and advising me that they were on their way, and come they did. I am not unsure just how many people came on Sat but we had the lift and the fun. Someone counted over 30cars.

page 12


The lift increased by 3pm and it was Laidley Slope at its comfortable best WOW!!!! Wing time and we got into it hard and fast. I did not get any photos of it but before long we had a 12 wing fur ball happening. A couple of mid airs and knock downs, but some real hot flying fun. I notice a lot of the big gliders hanging around over the top of all this and I reckon those guys were licking their lips and wished they could have been in it. You had to be there!!!!!! We had some really neat aircraft prepared for the day and it was a real treat for most of us to see these new model in the flesh. Mick Dakers turned up to help promote the Aero Tow Group and its next field day. I have an older model and hope to get out with these guys soon. Give Mick a ring I am sure he will look after you with advice on how to get started. Mick is no stranger to Laidley slope and joined in with us for Sunday as well. Thanks for the display Mick The afternoon continued to improve as the lift and wind increased and slowly I began to hear the sounds of tired pilots that did not want to stop flying. Some guys flew until dark and were planning how they were going to get another leave pass for Sunday. Things like painting lawns and weeding bribery begging and the like were discussed. Must have worked they were all back Sunday. We called it a day about 6pm, so tired can’t see, lets go home, see you in the morning and everybody disappeared. Lindsay Newlands and I were fortunate enough to be able to stay the evening. There were a couple of pikers but we won’t mention names. A good feed, plenty of quality refreshments and a scrub settled us in for the evening. It is amazing up there of an evening especially looking west the lights have to be seen to be believed. Looking east was entertaining with the huge glows of Brisbane and Ipswich and all the aircraft movements. Lindsay produced a laptop and with a little effort he hooked us up to the net. We checked the weather and cruised e-bay and Hobby King a delightful evening recalling the events of the day. We turned in about 9.00pm very quiet and peaceful ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. 11.30pm all hell broke loose 30knots of ESE hit us, I looked out the window to see the trailer roof doing amazing things, I tried to be serious but no, find it in the morning ZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Poor Lindsay was not as lucky, the wind tore his awning of his 4x4 and he spent the night in the front seat, he was not impressed. SUNDAY Daylight came about 4.15am and you could see enough to fly by 4.30am. There was a very soft draft coming up the slope not even enough to make the ribbon on my transmitter move. Waste of time arr what the heck throw it and I did. To my amazement the old easy glider shot up in this beautiful lift from nowhere just like flying in 15 knots but not even a breeze in my face. Hey this is how it went. Lindsay got these shots and gave me a hard time about be obsessed by flying. I wonder what gives him that impression. A quick breakfast and clean up and before you knew it Rob came racing up the road and hot on his heals was Ben. These guys must have got an early start to up here at that hour. It didn’t take then long to get into the air. Rob produced one of the new Sky Fun from Hobby King and Ben pulled out a well used Striker. Lindsay and page 13


I both knew what was going to happen next and it didn’t take long before the mid air crash investigation got under way. Just a soft bump, but at the speed these things travel. The day was off to a good start. Rob spent some time over the edge looking for the canopy after another mid air later in the day. Ben was no stranger to the lower parts of the slope also. Sunday got under way the same as Sat. The same faces where back and more, it’s hard to keep a track on numbers when all this flying fun is happening. Our new registration and briefing requirements appear to have been accepted by everybody with some positive comments coming from our visitors. I have said this many times. It is you guys that make the day!! I would like to thank the RSSF Committee Jim Bill Graham and everybody else that helped this weekend. I believe that these 2 days have been our best ever. Gary Thornton V/Pres RSSF

With a collection of about 12 model aircraft in his cupboard at home, Model Aeronautical Association Queensland president Robin Klau may have to return to Mareeba’s flying field. Klau, who was newly elected as president in September, made a visit to all the regional clubs across the state, arriving at Mareeba on November 15. “No other president has done this before,” Klau said. “I am retired and have the time to take an interest in what clubs like Mareeba are doing.” With 60 clubs in Queensland and 10,000 members competing at club, state, national and international levels, Klau said Mareeba was proving to be among the top clubs for recreational sport. “I was impressed with the enthusiasm that the people in that club have,” Klau said. “They are on a new flying field with a lot of building and approvals before council to go but that has not dampened their enthusiasm for the sport.” He said the sport offered something for the recreational hobbyist as well page 16

as those who want to compete on the world stage and aero-modelling was a recognised sport. “It is a very social activity and it gets them outdoors,” he said. “Some members use it at competition level but I think Mareeba are happy to just fly for now.” The club was founded in 1994 by a small group of enthusiasts who enjoyed building and flying model planes. Mareeba club president Charles McCaldin said there was a demand for the model aero sport and of the club’s 38 members, eight of those were juniors. “I think Robin was also impressed by that,” McCaldin said. “There is a club at Innisfail and two in Cairns but the Cairns club is on private property so we are finding a lot of those members are coming to use Mareeba’s flying field.” He said at the annual Queensland Ambulance Service’s Christmas Carnival in December, there would be a static display showcasing a variety of model aircraft and hopefully a simulator.

P38 REPLICA FOR ALL OF THE SCALE BUFFS OUT THERE Jim O’Hara is a member of EAA chapter 493 in San Angelo .He is a retired college professor (I believe in Aeronautical Engineering) who learned to fly when he was about 60 years old. He’s now 81 years old.15 years ago, he began construction of a 2/3 scale P-38.Using information he obtained from various sources about the P-38, he drew up a set of plans using a computer aided design program. Jim and his wife Mitzi built the entire aircraft by themselves. I’ve been fortunate enough to know Jim for almost the entire 15 years that he’s been working on his “project.”He first flew his plane in July of last year, and has just completed flying off the time (I believe it was 50 hours).He designed the plane to have a small jump seat behind the pilot for his wife. She’s tiny, and it’s a good thing; the jump seat doesn’t have much room. He made his first cross-country with Mitzi from San Angelo to Fredericksburg Saturday, accompanied by many of his friends from Chapter 493.He’s planning on bringing it to Eldorado for our annual BBQ next Saturday (Oct 31).

In Australia, model aviation is covered by the rules of Civil Aviation Safety Authority. Their priority is the interface of models to the general public and to full size aviation. They delegate the specific regulation of models to the MAAA. The MAAA is an important member of the Australian Sports Aviation Confederation (ASAC). As the Australian peak body, ASAC represents all Air Sports to the Federal Government and other national agencies, as well as the link to the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI). Other members of ASAC include the national bodies for Parachuting, Gliding, Hang Gliding, Ballooning and Aerobatics.

The MAAA has over 10,000 members across the country. The MAAA fee is $60 for which the members get $20,000,000 public liability insurance with an excess of $250 after subsidy by the MAAA, personal accident insurance and insurance cover for Instructors, Inspectors and Officers. Being a member of MAAA includes individual membership of the FAI, with the opportunity to participate in World and National Championships. On behalf of its members, the MAAA lobbies Federal Government and CASA, supports the maintenance of airspace and radio frequencies, provides a comprehensive Manual of Procedures, instruction methods and a proficiency scheme. Funds are allocated by the MAAA to support loans to clubs and the purchase of State Flying Fields, and to support World Championship teams. The MAAA is committed to the safety of its members through its Manual of Procedures and accident investigation protocols. Support to clubs and members at State level is provided by the MAAA State Associations

Frequently Asked Questions A recent addition to the MAAA website at www.maaa.asn.au is a Frequently Asked Questions page. The page is broken up into two sections at this stage, one for general questions and the second relating to questions and answers regarding 2.4GHz equipment. The intention of this page is to provide members and prospective members with easy access to typical, everyday information, which may or may not be contained within the MOPs. MAAA Life Members Sadly September saw the death of two respected MAAA Life Members. Jack Dunkerton: awarded MAAA Life Membership for ‘Services to MAAA in its formative years’. Ron DeChastel: awarded MAAA Life Membership for ‘Pioneering Model Aviation in Australia’. Expressions of condolence from the MAAA were passed to both families along with floral tributes, with many modelling friends also attending the funeral services. Outcomes from Reported Incidents As reported in previous MAAA Newsletters, there continue to be insurance claims for the repair of vehicles damaged by model aircraft. In most cases, damage could probably have been avoided with some extra thought given when parking vehicles at model fields. Due to the large payouts being made by MAAA to repair vehicles, a review of the MOPs dealing with minimum distances vehicles should be parked from flight operations is currently underway. Members are reminded of dangers involved with retrieving models which have come down outside the immediate flying area. The risks involved may not be apparent at the time however they can lead to dangerous situations. In one reported incident a member became stuck in deep mud in a mangrove tidal flat on an incoming tide. While the outcome and rescue was successful, it left the member in an extremely stressed and weakened condition. With the approach of summer, apart from the dangers of additional reptile and insect activity, movement, members are reminded of the problem of dehydration. This can prevail if no thought is given to the supply of sufficient fluids while attending flying fields and with the additional exertion of retrieving models. 64th MAAA Nationals Dalby Queensland Bulletin number three has been posted on the MAAA website with updates, as well as the official Registration
