It's Jeremy, what did you expect :*laughing my fat rear end off*

Seriously though your plan was immense especially the 4.20 metres bit that someone mistook for a 420 model :laughing

My 4.20m (metres) on the plan being mistaken for a 420 M Series was very amusing! We also had a couple of people turn up, not knowing what we were trying to achieve and tried to close up the "3" effectively making it an "8"

Many Thanks to everyone involved in organising what was a great day out ; the 30 looks great, the drone kept itself quiet though !
