  1. "MARYBOROUGH WILL BE BACK ON THE MAP." Hi Ironpot. My trike lives at YMYB, and I try to fly weekly. The fuel was very recently recommissioned and is yet to be discovered by many pilots. (Only Avgas unfortunately). Facilities also include free camping area at the airport, toilets next to the exit entry gate, a takeaway shop across the road, and a short walk to town. Mogas is just up the road at BP. Taxis are available too of course. I have recently became our Aeroclub Club Captain, and am in charge of advising members of fly-ins and activities to entertain our aviating passions. An idea I am currently hatching is an annual long weekend (Labour weekend?) camping fly-in to YMYB, where you can camp 1 or 2 days, fly the area around Fraser etc, and enjoy others company. The aero club may even be keen to cater a dinner evening and cooked breakfast. Thoughts and comments anyone? As a recreational pilot, I have not yet received a landing fee, but GA may be different. See map attached for more info.

    Bad fluctuating Oil pressure on a Rotax 912ULS

    Shouldn't that read - the less viscous the easier it flows.

    Bad fluctuating Oil pressure on a Rotax 912ULS

    If and when the oil cooler is installed with inlet/outlet down opposing the Rotax recommendation, how would you get rid of an air-lock in the cooler, and prevent gases building up in the top of it?

    Temora and Narromine airpark.

    Ring Terry and Jo at Narromine Tourist Park at the airport. They might be able to help. All the best.
  5. You should see/count how many of the new (approved) airpark lots have been sold in Maryborough over the last few years.........'0'. Maybe that was how Council 'was' hoping to get some coin but isn't. And hanger lot leasing and associated costs are quite prohibitive too - the thing is the airport including Hervey Bay are both very short on hangerage! As a result there is no enthusiasm or incentive to build any with earnings potential. Still waiting for the so called approved fuel installation too which is happening by the end of this month?? We all know only 2 things are certain in life- death and taxes - not necessarily in that order. The future is always uncertain, makes it hard to plan ahead doesn't it ....Rant off......

If I was to post my links on every website around the world i wouldn't get too far hey. It's not just for the 'Recreational Flying' community members. thanks.
  10. Hi you guys out there in want-to fly-but-cant-the-weather-is-no-good video land. I posted a few weeks ago, but not in this forum, and now there are more videos online. CrayonBox is now producing a video a week for Youtube either from or relating to a microlight, flying and cars, plus other things. There are some very interesting videos coming in the near future, some already in production. One of note is a multi-week trip to Victoria to pick up a new toy. So if you please go along and check it out, and see for yourself at MicroLight Flights with CrayonBox or directly to the channel at youtube Callsign: CRAYONBOX 'Subscribing is Free so Just Do it'.

  11. Thanks Troy. More to come - make sure you are connected with the Facebook page for updates and subscribed on the Youtube channel so you don't miss out (links above). A video weekly is the goal. The content type will vary.

  13. New video up now. Journey to Becoming a Bird.
  14. Hi Alan, Yes been busy - not so much freedom though. Not much flying last year due to wok or weather conflicts. This year most of my posts will be Facebook and Youtube video production from the trike. (something new on the horizon too!). More great footage to come. Love it if more like-minded people could subscribe and follow me along on youtube. Callsign: CRAYONBOX MicroLight Flights with CrayonBox regards, Stew.
