Rain cut short a model plane festival at the weekend.
Avon Model Aircraft Radio Club (AMARC), based in Weston-in-Gordano, hosted an open day in Cadbury Lane fields on Saturday, which was also due to run on Sunday, but rain meant the site was not safe.
The event raised £200 for the Great Western Air Ambulance Service.
Organiser Keith Wilson was pleased with how it went, despite the set back.
He said: "It was literally rain stops play, which was a shame but we were still delighted with the day.
"We made the most of the sunshine and had various static and aerial displays from pilots Toby Black and Thomas David in sixed wing and James Carter.
"Four new members also signed up and I must thank everyone who donated."
