Lekker, but how can you have such a boring name for the system?! :mrgreen: It deserves something better than IRIS.

(Is that a RC glider fuselage in your passage?)

It is indeed an RC glider (4 meter wing span). I have it hanging from the ceiling for decorative purposes.

My dad is into RC flying (slope souring). I bought this off one of his friends and have chosen not to fly it, but use it as a decoration instead, as all of these planes end up by crashing in the end and being totally messed up as a result.

My Dad usually fles off Signal Hill and Red Hill above Simonstown.

It's a small world isn't it! :D

Nice! :D

I was based as Air force Base Durban for 3 years from 2004 to 2007, so I'm a bit of a Durbanite myself. :D
