6th & 7th

Middle Wallop Electric weekend.  This date is now confirmed

If you didn't come to last year’s event, you missed a great weekend!

Middle Wallop Army Air base is the largest grass air base in Europe

This year’s event will commemorate again, Colonel H. J. Taplin's first official world recorded flight of an R/C electric model on the 30th June 1957.  He used his seven year old R/C ED Radio Queen prototype.  Motive power was from a 24V Government surplus Emerson motor & 25 silver/zinc cells.  On Sunday afternoon there will be a competition for the Exide & Drydex trophy for the best flown electric powered Radio Queen.  This beats Fred Militky of Graupner fame, who first achieved a successful flight with a F/F model in October 1957.

  • Pilots to have a minimum of an "A Cert"
