Returning to R/C...YESS!

    Greetings everybody..

    I am back! Jeez, it is easily 10 years since I was into the R/C game which wasn't practical for a number of reasons.

    That said, now I have my own car, a little budget and a feeling that R/C flying is a great sport to suit the pandemic we find ourselves in.

    After being cooped up in London flats for the last 6 years, I will be returning to Tipperary to weather the current COVID-19 storm. With that in mind I would love to get back into some kind of flying.

    I have decided that an electric, EPP Wing might do the job. I certainly won't be getting back into fuel/oil soaked balsa wood :) FPV really does intrigue me too.

    Anybody here into FPV e-flight of the "Wing" / glider type?

    My main query is where are good suppliers for this kind of stuff UK&Ireland(+Europe, I guess). I would like to keep local as best I can.

    Also, I have a hunch that it may be good to buy some pre-owned stuff as the budget will balloon fairly quickly I am sure.

    Many thanks
