On Sunday, June 14th we plan to hold a flat field event. Unfortunately we will no longer be able to use our usual field at Charterhouse. However, we have made alternative arrangements to use a field at Warren Farm which is quite close by. This field is the same as used by the Ghost Squadron and is probably as large as the Charterhouse field, plus it has a good mown runway.

Please note that the original event planned for this date was the club Summer Cross Country. This has now been rescheduled to the 28th June.

Weather permitting we will start the day at around 10.00 and should be able to fly for as long as we want. Cost should will be £3 per pilot to use the field. Any type of RC flying is allowed, electric, IC, bungee, etc.  As usual bring your own food and drink with you.

Directions to Warren Farm are as follows:

  • From the A38 Churchill traffic light junction take the A368 to Blagdon.
  • After approximately 1.5 miles turn right onto the B3134.
  • After 5 miles turn right at the crossroads onto the B3371
  • Just after passing the rifle range on your left turn right at the crossroads to Charterhouse (a small road !) follow the road up the hill for approximately ½ mile and turn left into Warren Farm.
  • Drive along the access road into the farm yard and turn left through a gate (or the cattle grid) into the field.
  • Go directly across the first field aiming for the far gate to enter the flying area. Don’t forget to close the gates behind you as you pass and be careful of the sheep that will be wandering around.
  • Road signs are good along all of the route and clearly visible and marked with the road number

As an alternative It is possible for people travelling from the south to access the site from Cheddar by driving up through the gorge and then turning left onto the B3371.
