Dear VC sir
It is helping me a lot. Today, I will be there on time. If it could be for minimum 7 days, It would be more joyful for us. Can it be Sir?

Himsikhar welcome to RCIndia.

A piece of advice,remove your address from your signature.It is very unsafe to post details of your location online.I am not saying that someone from RCI will do anything but the internet is open with many bad guys.

Thanks a lot for those kind words. They mean a lot to me today. Today is truly a milestone in my life, till now I hadn't realised what this wonderful hobby means to me.

Torrential rains brought life to a standstill in Guwahati today. All the roads were flooded, the majority of the people who stay in ground floors had to be evacuated as water entered homes and first disrupted then paralysed life completely. It is, I believe, being shown all over the news networks.

In spite of that we went ahead with the workshop and brought it to a successful conclusion. Hats off to the young participants and their parents. 45 out of the 50 were present and keen and raring to go! I was overwhelmed.

The Zephyr gliders were completed and flew before we finally ran out of time. These kids were amazing, and it was a humbling experience for my team and I.

Photographs of the final day follow......................

L'enfant Terrible du RCIndia



Day 3 - 16th Oct 2010

Upon reaching the venue, I found a sea of smiling faces waiting for me. The weather was inclement, to say the least. Roads were flooded and most of us had to wade in through knee deep water to reach. In spite of such adverse circumstances, we had a 80% attendance. Bravo! Clap

Pic 1 - While it poured outside, the kids got the feel of controlling the MiG indoors. The twin   
          EDF's were deafening in the closed auditorium!

Pic 2 - Explaining the various components like Brushed and Brushless motors, ESC, Tx, Rx, LiPo, 
          Gyro. I have an Japanese Gyroscope top and that made matters crystal clear!

Pic 3 - Wings sanded, wing tips cut, fuselage sanding begins. She is 8 and he is 12 and both of
          them pulled it off with a bit of help from the seniors. Wonderful enthusiasm!

Pic 4 - Since my team couldn't make it to the venue, I called upon the senior students to help
          with the instructions. They did a great job of helping the juniors.

Pic 1 : All ready but nowhere to fly!

Pic 2 : Lets try and fly the little Heli. She performed beautifully outdoors. Probably because it was
          dead still wind conditions.

Pic 3 : Autograph time. I wish Mustafa Sir was here now. We all missed him a lot today.


Pic 4 : The Champions!


This was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Their enthusiasm and big smiles made us forget all our troubles. Even the weather couldn't dampen the spirits. Such groups are the glimmer of hope that assures us that our hobby will thrive for many years to come.

Dear Participants,

For all those who couldn't attend the last day, get in touch with me and let us build the models together. Those of you who have my numbers, pass it around to your friends. Mustafa Sir and I will always be there to help you.

Regards,

VC

One last thing that I feel needs mention here.

I really wonder, would my team and I be able to pull something like this off had we not come into contact with this forum? I doubt it.

The amount of encouragement and support that has come in from all the forum members has been overwhelming. This is a collective success for www.rcindia.org. Rejoice! Bow Bow Bow

Congratulations VC sir on the successful completion of the camp in spite of the weather! Looking at the photos I wish I was able to be a part of it... but then you kept us updated so nicely that I did feel like I was a part of it Smiley And I completely agree with you about the forum being a driving force for all of us.. If I hadn't come into contact with the forum all my RC stuff would have been sold off by now and I'd be just another person with no hobby..

Information sharing improves knowledge of both.



VC Sir,

Subho Bijoya, No one contacted me till date .

However, as mentioned earlier (u see or not i dont know !), I have talked with VC (Not You, but Vice Chancellor) of BE&SU, Shibpur (Shibpur B. E. College, going to be IIST.) to start aeromodeling club and HAM club in the campus. He told me to gather a few students, and he will offer a clubroom and some fund too. As he is from IIT Kharagpur, he become nostalgic during talking and I realized that he is very much interested to start the hobby.

I found RohitGupta of this forum, an first year student of BE&SU of aeronotical engineering and now want to start. Hope your blessings and guidelines I surely got.

Recently, seeing your post about rubber powered model of Aurora, I found the address.

Aurora Model Mfg Co.
16,Shakespear Sarani
Calcutta, India

Thanks
