  1. Hi I am in Mackay and was wondering who you used in Townsville as I need my TXponder seen to a Garrecht
  2. I have an adaptor which fits in between my headset the plug thingies and works very well for me... People who I phone say they cannot hear any engine noise at all. and it works well
  3. I do not think there is a "draggier" aircraft than a SeaRey - with all the bits and pieces hanging off it - its like flying a Landrover with a full roofrack. The e-prop that I have now has certainly made a difference as I stated. I am not trying to sell the e-prop to anyone - just stating my experience with having flown it for about 7 months. The three main differences that I noticed is increased cruise speed at less revs - Some might say this is due to the pitch setting - but I am also getting a less takeoff distance and climb rate. Second it is very quite - to such an extent that people a
  4. Hi, I have been flying for about 7 months with my 4 blade e-prop fitted to a SeaRey. I honestly could not be happier. Performance improved dramatically over the IVO prop that I had on before. As an added bonus the vibration that I used to think was normal has completely disappeared. I gained about 7knots speed (a big deal in a SeaRey) and it climbs 300 ft/ min better. Worth every extra cent that they cost in my opinion. They look a bit flimsy - but it's handled water operations without a mark. They are certainly a lot tougher than they look.
  5. Sorry that's Michael Smith.......... Epic round the world trip ... his longest leg time wise was about 16 hours........
  6. Arguably the longest distances were flown by John Smith from Melbourne on his round the world trip in his SeaRey “Southern Sun” Check his blog out at Southernsun's Travel Blog: Lake Itasca, United States - September 29, 2015
  7. Currently building a Sea Rey
  8. Hey Everyone Just landed as a newby - learnt to fly in a old Maule in the African bush but hav'nt been up for 2 years since I became an Aussie - want to get back into "it" and thought the best way would be to build a kit amphibian (because of where I stay -Whitsunday Islands). I really had my heart set on a "Super Petrel" - but they do not make the kit anymore so if anyone out there has any suggestions --I'm all ears.
