  1. Great stuff.....................More please
  2. I guess you would know that Flight Design has gone broke. Reported that they are now made in Taiwan.
  3. Go check the Rotax ADs. From memory they was some issues with fuel permeating the floats causing them to sink a little. I think there was a test one could perform to check this.
  4. Check,[wiggle the terminal block going into the regulator], i found poor connections at this point caused similar red light problems
  5. OMG...Where did you get the bit about "most aircraft metals are hardened by heating to 500c and dunked in water"
  6. Why did someone spray out the rego numbers after the incident?
  7. Just go to Jabiru.......They have a Dyno
  8. Do you have any estimates on the finished engine weight?
  9. I believe the merlins had a tbo of 400hrs if they made it that far.
  10. Iamnot sure what all this is about.[ignorance on my part] ,but after you have dethroned RAA people. What is the plan then?
  11. You would have got a real surprise if you had have pulled the chute Ian, There was no rear strap fitted to it! [missed in manufacture].........DH, current owner
  12. Some body stated in the local paper that there should be only one sport at the Olympics.......Javelin Catching!
  13. You will find that Jabiru specifies from start to shutdown related to engine hours. Engine hours can be as much as 10 to 15% higher that flight hrs.
  14. Happened to me with OAMPS four years ago. rang the Sydney Office 4 times.looking for full insurance. No one returned my calls. Obviously didnt want the business and no manners to say so.
  15. To me, SPORT PILOT, is not the name for the magazine. "Sport" suggests competition, which is really not part of our activities. I still think we are Recreational Pilots.
  16. I am absolutely convinced that fuel will " go off" far quicker in "plastic" jerry cans, that in a proper metal container. Put a plastic can in the boot of the car for a few days and notice the fuel odour in the the vehicle. not so with metal container. A component part of the fuel exudes thru the plastic. [in my humble opinion]. I am refering to "approved" plastic containers.
  17. When i was 17yrs old a bee came in the window of my 39 vauxhall, landed on my crutch, and proceeded to crawl upthe leg of my shorts. Took out 6 posts of a shop verahdah
  18. Sit on a brown paper bag.....That was what my mum used to say
