  6. Those Drone guns send a 'blanketing frequency signal' that interrupts the signal from the drone operators transmitter being received by the drone, once the drone has lost contact with the transmitter, most are programmed to return to the home point which is usually where they took off from.

  8. Thanks good friend, my wife and I were priviledged to have a relaxing day as passengers on board a R44 for a round trip, Toowoomba, Bribie Island, Caboolture & return. We had two close calls with birds and short final at Caboolture and shortly after takeoff with a hawk/kite. It's hard to believe they actually located the Dump/Land Fill right next to the airfield. It was a nice day for flying with plenty of traffic in the Caloundra, Caboolture and Redcliffe areas with constant radio chatter. Here are a few photos taken today.
  9. I would think dope would do the job ok. I put some inspection rings on the underside of my wing and the the dope just softened the paint and the fabric stuck on well. Wayne.
