R.I.P. Reinhard Truppe

Verena Truppe reports on FB the passing of her father Reinhard Truppe. Reinhard was a top level F1C sportsman for a very long time. He represented Austria in World and Continental Championships many times. He flew in contests all around the world and was a regular at our Fab Feb events. Reinhard had a colorful style that will be missed on the flying fields. We extend our sympathy to his family and friends.

Recall notice- Hummingbird Model Products Pitch Gauge
From:Bernard Guest

Dear Hummingbird Model Products Pitch Gauge customers,

A flaw exists in the angle gauge for the Pitch Gauge. It seems that it is 2.5 degrees off, meaning your pitch set to 30 deg. is actually at 32.5 deg. I will send all pitch gauge customers a new angle gauge to replace the defective unit.
If you are a pitch gauge customer please send a note with your address and “pitch gauge recall” in the subject line to bernard.guest@yahoo.com <mailto:bernard.guest@yahoo.com>
While you wait you can simply set your pitch at 2.5 deg. lower value to obtain your desired pitch.
My apologies for any inconvenience and altitude losses (or gains).

Bernard
