Goodonya Gregory! Been there a couple of times myself over the years...Years ago, I saw a red Drifter, in a hangar at Caboolture...Is this the one?

Nice one Greg,have fun, I,ve been flying one for the last 3 yrs and after flying basic ultralights for the last 35 yrs, Scouts, Winton Jackaroo,Veenstra Thermite,Chinnook,Spectrum Beaver, Thrusters I find it the most forgiving fun machine for a Sunday fly cheers Al

goodonya Greg, your 'refurb' looks like the perfect opportunity to go over the lil' beasty from top to bottom - any chance of a close-up pic of your tailwheel addition?

 

btw, it looks like there is an old 406 EPIRB strapped to the side of the cockpit - fyi, the GME600G (GPS version) is about $300 on eBay, the non GPS version is about $50 cheaper (don't see the point for $50, actually)

 

cheers m8

I replaced a TX GME with this...smaller, lighter, cheaper, and higher spec.

yeah good pick M6, I'll be getting the same one - looks like you could attach it to the seatbelt - I like the idea of activation as soon as you make the pan/mayday call - just in case you're unable to do so after the 'landing'...you can always turn it off and notify authorities asap if all good

thanks M6 - I'll make a decision after I get my XC endorsement - hey Greg, do you have a Drifter close by you can use for checking anything against your aircraft? if not let me know if you need any dimensions or photos.

 

cheers

G'day Greg, how's the resto going m8?  I'm close to getting my refurbed prop back, still trying to source a set of throttle cables.  Hoping to be in the air again by the end of June?
