From the editor

The first quarter for the 2011 has finally arrived. The Christmas break had certainly flown by rather quickly. Some 150 entrants made the effort and attended the Dalby Nationals over the Christmas/New Year break, and despite the floods, described the Nationals as being the best ever. Some of the entrants had been turned away at Warwick after driving some 6 -8 hours from NSW , others heard from media releases that roads were impassable and many other stories. Some of the information portrayed by the media, of which some was incorrect, took its toll on the overall entries. Registration day was put back 24 hours due to delays caused by poor road conditions. The glider guys got stuck into it on the Friday and ran all of their event on that day out at Jimbour and spent the next couple of days looking at other events. Most if not all event venues were accessible by the start of the competition on the Saturday after the ground had dried out. The night flying at the DMAC field under a great big light (similar to the Sydney cricket grounds) was great. Many took to the night sky to enjoy the atmosphere. Troy Broderick hovered his big model in the light complete with smoke much to the delight of the onlookers. The smoke sure fixed the flying insects that were attracted to the big light. The rain softened ground had saved the odd model from total destruction while others had been rescued by the “Dalby Rowing Team “ from a swollen dam, and the tale of the wild duck that saved a free flight model from being lost for good. The nationals committee would like to thank the competitors who made the effort and made it to the Dalby Nationals . Event calendar In the past all events were to be e-mailed/faxed/sent to the SFI for ratification and the checking of clashes in dates of various events. Please send future event applications to the Editor instead of the SFI. I will take on the role of what Mike did in the ratification of the club events and will maintain the calendar of events. In future please send your events thru to : airflow@maaq.org Bulletins Since being elected, the President Robin Klau has instigated monthly bulletins sent out to all club executives via e-mail, to keep member clubs informed rather than filling up the airflow with reports. Any member wishing to read these reports can now do so at www.maaq.org .

indoor news Hello everyone. Welcome to the New Year and a new start for indoor flying. The Runaway Community Hall has been booked for the year, with the first meeting being on Thursday the 20th January, 1pm2.30pm. I am looking forward to it and I hope to see more flyers and models. The following 2 meetings are Thursday the 10th February (1pm-2.30pm) and Wednesday the 2 March (7pm-8pm), but arrive early. The meetings then continue on the same 3 weekly cycle. Mark the dates on your calendar. The hall will not be available on the 24th March, due to the fact it was pre-booked. I will advise if I can get an alternative date. I am planning on having a one design Chuck Glider competition a bit later. A plan date(s) etc to be advised. Allen Thomas is sponsoring it, thanks Allen. I am prepared to run a workshop on the building of a Hanger Rat if there is interest. I can't think of something giving more enjoyment for so little outlay, more bang for the buck as the Americans would say. That is all from me for now. Let me know if you have suggestions. Regards, Ian McEldowney

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.

DALBY NATIONALS APPRECIATED Firstly I would like to thank the Dalby Club for running the 64th Nationals. Considering the flooding conditions they had to contend with, they did a fantastic job. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Everyday we were there, they made available to us sandwiches, cold drinks and cold water, which was greatly appreciated by all. I would also like to thank the following people for their contribution to the running of various events: Brian Burke Ross Stokes Graham Wilson Robert Owens Harry Bailey John Hallowell Steve Rothwell Noel Corney Paul Turner Warren Leadbetter A special thank you to Robert Owens for bringing up his combat timing and lighting equipment and also those people (too many to name) who time kept, lap counted and cut judged. Unfortunately there were only 2 events not run - Half A Combat and Vintage Combat due to bad weather on the last day. There were a few enjoyable social evenings put together by Andrew Linwood and attended by many ... Especially the last night. A good time was had by all. Last but by no way least, I would like to thank all the work John Taylor, Ross Milne and Dale Jude did in bringing the Nats together. Without them the Nationals would not have been the success they were. Mark McDermott Control Line Co-ordinator MAAQ Administrator

Maaq Museum. Have you ever wondered what happens to the old modelling gear after a loved one has passed on? Wondered what to do with the collections of engines, radios and the like would end their existence by being unceremoniously dumped at the local tip . Some years ago, a plan was developed by the New South Wales Association to have a collection of memorabilia located at Drages Airworld at Wangaratta NSW. For some unknown reason the plan fell flat on its face and never came to fruition. How about the MAAQ becomes involved in putting into plan, a centre for memorabilia and the like . Collections of engines, badges, old photos, models anything associated with modelling in general for our future generations to see. Our SFI has a great collection of old stuff including an original pixie radio and model and many magazines and photos from Arthur Gorrie and other long past modellers of yesteryear. Some of this was on display at the Nationals at Dalby which created quite a bit of interest. We need to look after these valuable pieces of history otherwise they will be lost for good. There is a need to plan for a building /site for the housing of this type of collections , otherwise these types of collections as early as the 30’s are being dumped, never to be seen again. I too have bequeathed my engine collection to the MAAQ when I pass on for the benefit of others who may have not seen old and unusual engines . I would like to put it to any of the members and the clubs who would support the idea and advise me of their thoughts on this. I think this is a step in the right direction into preserving what we have got and preserve the old for future generations to admire. Hope to hear further from the members on this.

With deep regret I pass on information just received from Rodger’s brother that Rodger Adams passed away in his sleep yesterday after about a week in hospital. Rodger began C/L flying in the early 1950’s. He spent many years with the NMAA club (when the late Arthur Gorrie had the hobby shop in South Brisbane,ran NMAA, and was PRO of MAAQ) Rodger had been a member of T’birds from 1991 till last year but had still visited the C/L field most Sundays in recent months.

Back Then: The Seventies and Eighties - a look at the hobby in general The rotary model aircraft engine the OS Wankel was released in 1970, followed by the OS 20 in 1971 and the OS40 RC in 1972, plus the first schneurle ported motor OS 40 FSR in 1973 and the OS 60 blackhead in 1974 . There are many other notable motors released over the years but space doesn’t permit a full listing. From the early seventies to 1980 OS had produced 36 new engine types . The first produced four stroke was introduced in 1960 with the FS 60 . 1979 saw the beginning of the twins the FT120 Gemini motor of 20 cc. In the seventies OS did not always have it their own way with K&B’s , Webra’s , Rossi’s and Enya’s being also chosen by modellers just as often as the OS. .... August 1972 saw the release of the brown box Futaba radio 4 channels with 3 rotary heavy duty servos, dry battery operation, fixed crystals, ratchet type motor control for accurate in flight motor settings . Square vinyl covered transmitter case complete with a receiver battery power test jack in flight trim controls for the 4 channels for the price of $256.00. I suppose back then the wages were only a fraction of the cost of one of these radios and it took me quite a long time to save my paper run money to buy one of these radios, which incidentally I still have and is still in working order down on 29 meg. The Airborne Magazine then was 60 cents Kits were a build yourself just a box of balsa and if you were lucky a tube of glue was included Page 12


and tissue for covering. Kits back then were Airomodelli, M.K., Keilkraft, Aeroflyte, Veron to name a few. Engines - Super Tigre, Enya, O.S, Ueda, Fox, PAW & Taipan . Hobby shops like Arthur Gorries at 604 Stanley Street Woolloongabba had specials like a OS15 r/c and Invader kit for the price of $45.00, an OS20 and the “Hustler” Aeroflyte kit $35.00. In the Trans Tasman Team trials in 1972 there were no marked trends in aerobatic models , the majority been own designed, with Kraft being the most popular radio and HP being the most popular motors. Solarfilm was available back then as it still is today . Did you know that a girl took out first place in a control line combat event? This was back in 1972 as well . Round one of the united trophy saw 12 year old Mary Anne Phippen take out first place in FAI combat. Her performance put some of our seasoned seniors (at the time) to shame. Mary flew in the State Champs in NSW and again put in a good performance. Later on in the seventies more brands of radios became available, the Sanwa 2 channel and 4-6 channel variants and the Futaba 2 channel was a popular radio of the time. Kraft made their mark in the ring as well. PSA (Proportional Systems Australia) joined later on using Kraft components to make their own locally produced radio which was very reliable. The early eighties saw new emerging technologies in the building of models using foam . Back then there was no ARF kits available, most built from kits which comprised of a box of balsa & ply and a plan to build off. 1988- Midwest produced the Stick series sports kits along with the Hots and the Aerostar, Aeroflyte’s new “Albatross” glider became available. Kraft radios were advancing, along with Futaba new 1024 computer radio, then the Multiplex Profi 3030 and the JR Max computer 6 radios were introduced, the price then was $640. The Airborne Magazine was $3.60 and the RCM was a little cheaper at $3.50 . Into 1989 Hitec brought out the “Challenger 550” radio 5 channel for a price of $399, mini servos then were $39. Multiplex kits were around then too with gliders like the ASW 22, Flamingo , Alpina, LS3, Ka6e and the DG300 all reasonable sized gliders from 2.8 metre to 4 metre in span. Aeroflyte branched out into electric with the “Domino” a simple high wing trainer and the release of the ASP 46 FSR abc glo motor . Ducted fan models were popular with the go fast guys back then too. Drifting into early 1990 saw the release of the new JR Apex computer PCM 8 radio and further on in 1990 saw the release of the JR MAX 7 radio, one of the first with the lcd screen. The Aeroflyte”Hustler” and the “Hurricane” kits were a popular trainer back in the mid eighties along with the Precedent series of the BiFly 40 & the 25 size biplanes and the “Telemaster” series were just a popular although a bit larger in span . Package deals with radio for a “Hustler “ and a Hitec Challenger radio plus a OS 40 FP motor would have set you back $350 or thereabouts in 1990. Next issue I will touch on from the 1990 onward.

Next General MAAQ meeting date : 18th of June at the “ Banyo Llbrary” Banyo in Brisbane commencing at 2 pm. Afternoon tea will be provided afterwards. Further information regarding the location details will be forwarded to clubs prior to the meeting date. CUT OFF DATE FOR MATERIAL FOR NEXT EDITION WILL BE THE 10 TH JUNE 2011 Page 13


Southern Cross Air Force - 12th and 13th February, 2011 Suncoast Model Flyers Airfield The weather was almost perfect and the quality of flying excellent for the first Southern Cross Air Force fly-in for 2011.

There appears to be yellow ‘Cub Fever’ striking a number of members and it seems that ‘bigger the better’ is the flavour of the year. It was pleasing to see aircraft of the same type eg: Cubs and Pilatus Porters formation flying.

Although no actual count was taken, some 70 to 80 models were on display all weekend. A fantastic display was presented by Luke Cullen with his assistant Mark Williamson of Luke’s nationals contested B25 Mitchell bomber which was skilfully flown and belly landed after one wheel failed to come down. This aircraft is certainly a crowd pleaser.

Another highlight of the week-end was the presentation of ‘bronze wings’ to junior member Henry White by instructors Chris Wood and Geoff Pinkerton. Photo below

It was with pleasure that we welcomed 5 new members to SCAF on this week-end. Enthusiasm is building with members looking forward to the next meeting at Tingalpa on the 13th March, 2011. Photos: Ken Bird and Peter Johnson

STRANGER DANGER

Like many Clubs, RAAF Amberley’s main flying day is Sunday with the first of our members usually arriving about 0630-0645, 3-4 others (including myself) at about 0700, then numbers gather from about 0800. Last month, our early bird arrived at about 0630 to find a “stranger” already flying an electric model, and note here that this would not normally happen except we have lost 300+ metres of fence and a locked gate to the floods, so part of our field security is in limbo. On approaching the stranger, our member asked the usual questions and was advised by the flyer that he intended to join our Club and he was there to sign up.  Further questioning revealed that the flyer was “between Clubs” and/or belonged to two Brisbane Clubs, but the responses were contradicting and vague.  Our member pointed out that Club Rules require two people present to fly; first for any medical mishaps around aircraft or just plain becoming ill, and second as we have a black and brown snake problem being near the Bremer River. He also pointed out that enclosed shoes are required, and not rubber thongs as the flyer was wearing; and that the flyer needed permission to fly as a visitor or guest from a Club Executive or a Safety Officer.  The flyer then asked when somebody would be present to approve this and was advised that myself (as President) and a Safety Officer are usually at the field by 0700.  The response from the flyer was that he would keep flying until somebody arrived then.  Our early bird reiterated what was said but the flyer just ignored him, loaded up a battery pack in his electric model and proceeded to go and fly; and our member wisely retreated while shaking his head in disbelief.  I arrived about 10 minutes later, and noted that the flyer was unknown to me, that he was wearing thongs, and that he was piloting from the taxiway and not from the flight box.  As I approached the pits, the flyer had landed and was heading to the pits.  After some questioning and also asking why the flyer had ignored the member’s advice to which I got no satisfactory answers, I advised the flyer of our Club Rules and Membership Criteria (which he did not meet) and asked him to leave the field.   The reaction was not good, but the trump card for us is that, unless invited, such flyers are trespassing on Commonwealth (Defence) land which will first attract a visit from the Security Police, and second, a likely heavy fine and/or jail sentence.  As a result, I had no hesitation in moving the person on without delay.  This whole incident was unpleasant for our member, but for me the handling of difficult persons (uniformed and civilian) has often been part of my RAAF job.  Regardless, it does show what some people will do at times.  No courtesy phone call or contact prior to coming out to the field; even if dropping in by chance there was no paying attention to a member’s advice re Club Rules; it was likely that he was not financial anywhere and thus an insurance risk, and being plain downright rude to expect to just lob onto a flying field and start flying.   I don’t know of any Club that would tolerate such an “invasion”, but it is a timely warning as to how arrogant and stupid some people can be.  I did contact the two Clubs mentioned, but neither knew of the flyer within the membership.  Let’s hope that this person gets the message from this incident and actually learns what is the right thing to do. What I do know is that the flyer will never be one of our Club members and will never be allowed on the field as a casual observer, visitor or guest.  So be warned, there are some people out there with strange ideas as to what is protocol and common courtesy.   Trevor Owens RAAF Amberley Model Aero Club .

“Wings over the Downs” rebuilds after floods The Toowoomba Chronicle published an article “Memories lost in 20 minute deluge : on the 13th January 2011. Rob Mercer’s family spent 100 years building George Cossarts Joinery & Saddlery and more recently in the last 15 years or more “Wings over the Downs Hobbies” which was also housed in this century old building. It took less than 20 minutes for Mondays flash flooding to tear it all down. In the space of 20 minutes the creek went from being three quarters full to the front window exploding as water and some of the furniture from across the street came into the shop. Robbo said that he had never seen anything like it in his life, not even in the city’s 1904 flood for which they have photos . This flood was much bigger. $100,000 of stock and a lifetime of memories were all washed away on Monday as more than 2 metres of water ran through the shop. Even new stock that had arrived that morning was lost, everything above on the higher shelves were saved, but below the shelves where other kits and cars were placed were also lost. The force of the water had opened the back doors the other way ,normally they used to open inwards, taking with it counters,stock and the fridge as well . It was ironic to see in the rubble that remained of stock washed down the creek, a totally destroyed Hitec Aurora 9 radio lay beside a fully intact coffee mug which came from the Coffee shop a block away from the shop. In the days that followed a clean up had started in the shop, with the help of customers and volunteers ,completed the job in a few days. Rebuilding has yet to begin, hopefully by the time you read this there will be something started . It may take up to 6 months or so to complete . Wings will continue to trade from another location in Toowoomba and it will be business as usual , until the original shop is restored back to its former glory to of the smell of leather and castor oil . The editor Trevor Sidaway Trophy The MAAQ historian Mike Snabaitis would like to hear from any of the members who have been presented /awarded the “Trevor Sidaway” trophy over the last decade or more . If you have then please contact Mike via email on cfi@maaq.org. Would be looking forward to hearing from you.
