  1. Julia creek strip would be within the 1 km I would think bloody close anyway
  2. Usually emailed, the distributor/ agent is also asked to contact owners directly, as usually they still have the best contacts. At the end of it I would near guarantee they knew the aircraft was grounded, another reason why I stopped instructing, people won’t listen.....
  3. Yeah I wouldn’t know about any of that
  4. How can someone who flys something like that manage to get into the ring, obviously not thinking very far ahead, what a waste of a big beautiful helo
  5. Hmm I have done “first” solo in 4 completely different aircraft the last one was the hardest (helicopter)
  6. Thanks for the input, it looks like the machine I was looking at is sold
  7. Looking at getting back in the air again I’ve been ground hogging it since I sold my single seat helicopter like 18 months ago, redone my old AUF license ( that should give you a hint of age) to a raaus license near 12 months ago, keep getting close to buying then decide to hold off again. my real question is are the above planes particularly bad for ground loop behaviour or not? I think one of these might be a good compromise between a bit of speed and shortish take off?
  8. Hey are you still flying gyro's around the towers?
    1. bones


      No mate not flown for ages
  9. It took 3 month to get my pilot cert
  10. Why not balance it closer to perfect then fit the balance master?
  11. ok so, just saying that 1 was to have an aircraft with a camitt engine, are jabiru parts the same/clone, ie. can the jabiru parts for all the engine be used in a camitt engine? what are the parts options? thanks
  12. be the sprag the drives off the starter not the starter more than likely, ill bet the prop is real jerky?
  13. Ron Watson from Innisfail might be interested also, 0404565249 , did you buy the 230 in Townsville for sale?
