Dave returned home from Aberdeen late last night accompanied by the F3N Scottish Nationals Trophy. He had a brilliant weekend with travelling companion Darren Hardy (of RapidRotors) - Dave last attended the Scottish Nationals in 2009 so it was great to catch up with everyone. The Scottish Hosts were as welcoming as ever & for once the weather played ball. Dave is looking forward to returning next year to defend his title!

What a weekend it was! The end of May Bank Holiday Zone event at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Yeovilton was spectacular to say the least. The weather was dry & the Sunday at least, not too windy. The first day of competition saw the qualifying rounds take place. The 24 pilots were put into groups of 3 who flew against each other. The two top scoring pilots from each group would then be through to the knock-out rounds on the Monday.
Dave was up against tough competition in his group being drawn with Jonathon Boission (top French pilot & brother to Dunkan Boission, last year's finalist) & also Stuart Mott, the UK's top 3D pilot. Stuart experienced a 'dumb thumbs' moment (proves it can happen to the best of pilots) when he was flying against Dave which meant that Dave was through to the final 16 & the knock-out rounds.
Unfortunately the luck of draw was against us as in the first round on the Monday, Dave was drawn against last year's winner & the eventual winner of Zone 2013, Jamie Robertson. It was a brilliant weekend & we were treated to some spectacular flying from some of the world's top 3D pilots. Can't wait until next year!!
Thank you to Ian Hunter for the photographs!

It has come to our attention that some people have been less than satisfied with their dealings with a Dave Fisher advertising his wares on BMFA Classifieds. Please note, this is NOT the Dave Fisher of Flyin' Fish. On the couple of rare occasions when we have sold items via BMFA Classifieds, these have been advertised by Julie Fisher, not Dave Fisher.

We had a great time at the 3D UK Champs in Tewkesbury last weekend. Dave came 7th overall which we were really pleased with. The standard of flying was extremely high & Dave scored his highest ever marks in both the freestyle & music rounds so things are definitely heading in the right direction. Congratulations to Stuart Mott who narrowly beat Duncan Osborne (reigning 3D UK Champs champion). Stu Smith came 3rd.
This weekend we should have been at the Charmouth Heli Flyin. Unfortunately due to car problems we were unable to make it. We've made the most of a quiet weekend to catch up on some outstanding jobs around the house. Fortunately the wet weather that was forecast for Sunday didn't materialise & from what we understand the weather in Dorset has been good all weekend so plenty of flying was had by all those who attended.
We have one more flying event to look forward to in 2012 - the F3N Team Trials which will take place on 21st October in Nottingham. The top three pilots from this competition will go forward to represent Great Britain at the 2013 F3N World Championships which will be held in Poland.

We are thrilled to announce that Dave is now part of Team Thunder Tiger & is looking forward to flying his new Raptor G4 Nitro and E720 helicopters at 3D Masters in Venlo in 2 weeks time.
Dave has been very impressed with the quality, build and performance of both machines. He has only been flying them for the last 2 weeks and is already very at home with the models. We would like to thank both Thunder Tiger and Amerang for their support and look forward to working closely with them both in the future.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Horizon Hobby UK for their support with Spektrum radio and other Horizon products.
