What are your goals for 2013

Postby Dave Parry » January 19th, 2013, 3:15 pm

I have to admit I have pinch this idea from another forum, as I think it is a good one, so as the title says what are your goals for 2013.

Mine is to do more flying as over the last couple of years I seem to be doing less and less, just the other day I was thinking am I losing my interest in the hobby! It has been two years since I last had a go a building anything it is also about the same amount of time since I last bought anything. I just don’t seem to have the motivation to do anything. So I need a swift kick up the rear that for sure, :lol: so how about you.

Would be nice to actually finish a model for myself rather than other people for a change. Got a couple of new (to me) but 2nd hand models in need of work and hoping to get a new workshop at home sometime this year, so you never no.....

I think if I can manage to mostly stay awake & do any flying at all I'll declare the year a success!

Finish and fly the Sky 120 I'm building at the moment, and yes Dave there will be something for the mag. :D

Finish and fly the Flair Cub that I stopped work on to start the Sky 120!

Oh, and get my A cert.

Apart from that, just to have a good 2013, and get to Cosford, which will be my first show that wouldn't entail sandwiches and a thermos of tea for the journey to get there! :o

Wow!! this has been dragged out of the archives, so what a great opportunity to see if you all achieved your goals.

Me, well I did do what I said at the beginning, I few more and got my confidence back to the point of flying at our last show in 2014 I bought more and crashed more as well :shock: :( :lol: , but I didn't build more still not interested in that part of it yet. Maybe I just haven't found the right model.
