  5. a delegation from the IOC with an announcement that our man Boris was to represent the nation at the bad hair Olympics. duly came the final with three remaining contestants Boris, Donald and Kim fighting for the podium with all three pushing and shoving and trying to balance on the top spot. The IOC calls in a whole alphabet of international consultant firms who recommend a circular podium with only one flat surface. All three then refuse to stand on such an abomination of the competitive spirit and head off to their respective TV interviews meanwhile Xi with three medals around his neck and the podium under his arm is seen

  9. If I need to use my right hand for anything including flaps then left hand on the stick works well. If correctly trimmed there should be no need to touch the stick for the interval needed to adjust the flaps certainly attitude changes with flap setting changes but not violently nor dramatically enough that no hand on the stick creates any potential hazard. Skyranger is a very benign aircraft to fly and any in likely atmospheric upset a trimmed Skyranger will return to its original condition without any control imputs
  10. True Skippy, But my concern is/was that every time that this system is used at some point the fuel/air mixture would be at a potentially explosive ratio. Whereas with other systems the gas mixture in both the receiving and the delivering containers would be too rich at all times. cheers
  11. I used a foot operated lilo pump to pressurise a jerry can and it worked exceedingly well. That is until I thought about it a bit more Thoughts being 1 liquid fuel is not explosive 2 fuel-vapour is not explosive 3 fuel-vapour/air mixture is explosive 4 pressurised fuel-vapour/air mixture is a potential flame thrower. With those thoughts in mind I went back to decanting liquid fuel from jerry can into Mr Funnel into aircraft.
