Wings and Wheels (2017)

This year was the 31st year of Wings and Wheels and marked several years of the R2 Builders and Dalek builders attending.  The event started on a chilly Saturday morning which warmed up by early lunchtime. 

It had a variety of RC models from tanks to boats to trucks, although the main focus was on RC planes, and there were lots of planes.  

The planes vary from props to EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) to jet engines.

There was even an 87% scale RC plane.

Steve Martin sorted out the R2 Builders and Dalek Builders and Vince Martyn brought his caravan and awnings for us to use as shelter if required. 

On the Sat as well as Steve, Vince, Chris Osbourne and Oliver Steeples attended with their droids to show off to the public.  On Sunday Chris and Oliver were replaced with Adam and his Wall-E.

 For anyone interested in RC this is a great event, although come with your shopping list so you know what to buy from all the stands.
