Hi all,
Over the weekend the club held its annual fly-in at their spiritual home of Taumarunui, where it was formed in 1969. Old hands reckon it was one of the best ever with a remarkable number and range of aircraft (despite the name, all types are welcome). Here are a few pictures to hopefully convey what an awesome day Saturday was.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Awesome is what that is.

Thanks Zero-sen.

It would make a great basis for a whiff.

It'd make a good whiff for using to spray drug crops - the job they do (cropdusting) in real life anyway - though might need a smidgen more armour...

The PAC750 development is cool, too.

My pleasure! We're fortunate to have so many neat machines here.

I used to work on this one, too! You can get a 1/72 Unicraft kit but...well, it's Unicraft! I tried to give Igor as much info as possible but it has some errors that need fixing.

Rick's link above says "Work was continuing in 2016 on developing a Defender II variant for COIN and light attack operations."

Oo, I'd missed that - interesting.
As it can carry 17 people and their 'chutes, the payload for munitions should be worthwhile.

I note that a lot of the ones sold to China and converted into drones have crashed in landing accidents... this doesn't fill me with any confidence WRT autonomous aircraft - and by extension, ground vehicles...  :o  :banghead:
