Sunday Testing session at Barton

For those of you that don't know, Barton Model Flying Club is a control line only club based at the Barton Aerodrome in Manchester.  The club's field is actually part of the full size airfield and there is even a police helicopter base literally right next to it.  It's got to be one of the most unique sites in the world.  My dad fly's there regularly and I occasionally travel across the Snake Pass to fly there.  They've got a hard team race circle with caging, and all the other circles have hard centre circles and nice short grass.   Any who, we took advantage of the fine weather Manchester had on Easter Sunday, to go and test our new Viko gear, and here's some pictures.
