    All set up. Watched some free flight then when it got dark some guys got out their delta wings with LED strips on all flying in close proximity it was awesome it looked like we were being attacked by alien space ships. Really hard to get good photos of them though.

    Sorry it has taken so long to get around to posting these photo's it's been hectic here since we returned.
    Here is a selection of the pictures from the event.
    First up is delta wings flying at night. They were covered in LED's top and bottom so i used a long exposure time to make them trail.

    Yes it was a truly awesome weekend. My wife has already asked if we can go again next year. My goal is to be good enough to fly 3D in the hangar in the evenings. It will be a long time before i can get my BMFA B licence needed to fly at the flight lines.
