Hi friends,

Congratulations to Paul Cooke on gaining his B(Eng) Honours degree in Microelectronics and Computing. Paul is son of Gordon, Chairman of Test Valley Flying Club, and flies with us whenever he gets the opportunity. Paul's final year project just happened to be a pretty nifty microprocessor- controlled battery charger for Nicad, NiMH and Lithium cells and electric flight use. I'm hoping that Paul will write something up on it for ModelFlight. 

I was really pleased to be able to meet Gary Clemans-Gibbon at Wings & Wheels Model Spectacular a week or so ago. Gary is the guy who encouraged me to put up the new archive which, I am happy to say, has been well-received. Apart from the lads at my club, Gary is the first ModelFlight reader to have emerged from cyberspace and become a reality! Now I know that you guys out there really do exist! There's an in-depth kit review from Gary on air space.

Do you have any 'cottage' kit-makers in your part of the world? You know what I mean - the small, independent manufacturer turning out unusual or particularly nice kits that the rest of us might normally never hear of. If so, and if they have a web site, please let me know about them and give me their web address. I would like to feature a few from all around the globe on our 'site seeing' page from time to time. 

Hit-counting is not my thing and as long as there are a reasonable number of you who are happy to visit and contribute to this web site, I am certainly happy to go on. All the same, I must record that just before the last issue went up on the web, my discrete hit counter recorded the 20,000th visitor to the site, which sort of pleased me for no truly accountable reason. Cue to thank you all for your continued support and encouragement; your contributions of any sort are always most welcome and I love to hear from you! 

Regards to all,
