  1. 4 years, Alf. Not a day I’ll forget in a hurry. jason
  2. G’day Brett, I’ll lay money on your problem being your ducting to your radiator not allowing enough airflow. i’ve recently had to mount my radiator vertically on the engine mount near the Firewall on my 601 HDS and had the same problem. I originally had a Plenum over the radiator fed by various inlets but eventually had to make a NACA duct feeding directly to the face of the radiator to allow effective ground cooling. It now runs waaay to cool but that’s a simple fix with some Aluminium tape. Jason
  3. No. On his way South from Innisfail to Dysart. Landed at Ingham due to Weather and crashed it whilst landing. Jason
  4. That link was back in 2014. There was a Storch that flipped on landing a couple of days ago though. Jason
  5. Skippy, have you got a close up photo of the Staining ? If the Chemicals you have tried have had little effect, I would start doing test spots starting with a light Polish/Pad Combo gradually moving up to a heavy Compound and even Wet Sanding if required. Sometimes there just isn’t enough Paint to remove the defects and repainting is the only option. It would probably be easier and cheaper for you to get a GOOD local Detailer to have a look at it for you ( I may know someone in your area ) For protection you can’t go past a good quality Professionally applied Ceramic Coating although there are consumer grade coatings available prep is key to a good result.

  10. judging by the sellers name in the link, I reckon he might be ;) Jason
  11. Hi Rose , I see you’re from Townsville, what strip do you fly out of ? Jason
  12. I fly a 601 HDS with a tinted canopy and the Vans RV NACA ducts to eyeball vents for cockpit airflow up here in North Queensland. On the ground it can get pretty tropical but in the air we’ve had absolutely no problem. You can also buy retractable shade screens such as the Home which I’ve been meaning to get....more for shade while we’re parked at other airstrips. Jason
  13. Does this help Mate ? It looks like a factory calibration input. http://www.aviasport.com/pdf/Instruments/Datasheet_IM_105.pdf Jason
  14. It’s the opening scene of the 1989 movie “ Always “ about a fire bomber Here’s the trailer :) Click the link on the Black screen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTFMBfp0--k Jason
  15. I use an oil can it works a treat ....just cut the yellow nozzle off and you have your hose built in :) SCA Oil Can, Flex Spout - 300mL - Supercheap Auto
