  5. lol I never picked that up I left it to him to put on I was more worried about the flight and the camera etc I had about 15 other planes behind me. WE flew in formation plus there was a problem with the plug so we couldn't talk to each other through the headsets :)
  6. This is my first filming using my new Go Pro mounted with the suction cup fitting on my helmet The wind caught it a couple of times but my passenger straightened it for me. ) By the way the plane is for sale only because I am moving in 6months time to Bali and can't find anywhere to keep and fly it there sadly :(

  8. I have been using the Castrol 2TS synthetic in my trike with a Rotax 503 engine since the Penrrite became unavailable seems to be ok But is expensive am interested to hear more abouyt this other oil some of you are mentioning ie Active T2 especially if it is much cheaper?
  9. None of those are the problem I think I may have found it Oe side of the fork has slight bend and it is causing wheel to catch on the material that surrounds the hole to stop dust coming in (a bit hard to explain -but not serious) you can email me at [email protected] No I didnt get your email

  21. I learnt GA in a Cessna 172 , did aerobatic rating in a Cessna 152 a couple of years after that Then abut 3 years later learnt to fly a trike 10 years later went back to an ultralight and now fly both. The skill to fly a trike is so different to 3 axis and when under pressure landing you have to be careful that GA flying doesnt take over It actually happened to a pilot on his solo and he is now dead! :( So extra hours is worth the dollars spent! Judgement for the flare height is also so much more important than GA
