  1. The moulds must be somewhere? Have you done any research, got any leads?
  2. I’d be interested in them but as a newby to thruster aircraft perhaps there may be someone more worthy?
  3. A couple of before/during/after photos.
  4. www.backpackairsports.com.au can custom make whatever you want in that type of thing. Give Adrian a call, you may need to send him your headset.
  5. No that looks to be different footage to what I saw. Similar result with starboard wing off first then port wing off followed by crash. The camera angle was looking down towards where the accident happened. Possibly taken from a nearby ridge.
  6. Did anyone see the footage on ch7 shortly after the accident showing the starboard wing breaking off? I haven’t been able to find it online but the terrain looks similar to the video posted here. Wondering whether it was old footage or not?
  7. Hi Old K, If you put a change-over relay in the line it will get the light to work the way you want it. It will require a couple of wires but I'll do my best to 'farmer-splain' it. I'm not an auto-elec so be warned... Refer to below diagram For Positive feed 30- +pos taken after master switch 85-86 cut the +pos or -neg to oil switch and insert relay in this line. I'm pretty sure power only flows one way through this circuit so 85 should be closest to battery +pos 87- not used (cover with something non-conductive as this will be +pos during normal operation, or use a green L
  8. My long awaited Thruster re-build has started...
  9. Yep, I learned to fly in it. First Thruster I soloed in! It has moved from that location closer to where you are based, but you probably know that?

    Update: I am able to source skins through Spectrum Aviation. Emma was the one helping Wayne with the sail making and I believe is in the process of setting up her own business, so Good News!!! However Emma and I have different measurements for the length of the aileron for a T500. Her template is for an aileron measuring 4408mm long measured outside of tubes. I have measured mine and two other t500's and found ours to be 4510mm+/-2mm. Firstly, does anyone know what thruster the 4408mm aileron belongs too? Second, Are there any T500's close by to Lismore that Emma can get a look

    There was someone working with him however I was told today that she was a uni student and only part time? The answer I received today was that they were reviewing that part of the business (re the legality of someone else within the business doing the sailmaking) and were unsure whether it would continue.

    Hi all I am looking to source a new set of wing and aileron skins for a T500. I had an order placed with Spectrum Aviation however it looks as though they weren't made before the recent passing of Wayne. As Wayne was the main person doing the fabrication it appears that they may not be able to complete the skins I have ordered. Does anyone know of other skin/sail makers doing this type of work? thanks in advance PF
