Very nice pics (c'mon Jan lets have a pic of your new Trident - can't wait to go for a fly togrther :-)).

Hey Frazer loving your choice of Trident colours - looks good on my Standard too - minus the green eyes.

I quite fancy one of those EO-6's; can you buy them in the UK or is it only from GWTW?

The eyes don't seem quite as green as they look in that picture in the flesh so to speak.

Mine came from GWTW - it was something like $34 after discount - it comes RTF and is well worth the money IMHO.

Well it was actually a birthday present a couple of weeks ago but a combination of gales and foggy no wind meant that its first flight was today in almost spring like conditions on Cowbridge Common.

Not that this will be news to anyone but very impressed. Managed four rungs of a Jacobs Ladder (alternate rotations as well), a double yoyo and unwrap and a couple of very graceful 540s. As I could not even do a half axel at the start of 2006 I am feeling very chuffed :D

As for the picture I have given up trying to link it or copy and paste it so if you don't know what a red Deep Space looks like there is one in my gallery

http://www.fracturedaxel.co.uk/phpBB2/nickpage.php?admin=Tregolwyn&sub=gal

All the best for 2007. How about another Better Flying Day somewhere along the M4 corridor (Bath/Bristol end preferably)?

Hey Paul nice going....except the link to your gallery that you posted doesn't work, its 'forbidden' - I hope it's OK I posted a working link from your gallery (I was going to post the pic but it's enormous)
