  1. Having trouble getting plug caps for 912, apparently ngk aren’t supplying, any ideas.
  2. Anyone with info on blue water park strip north west of Townsville, I heard the operator could be hard to get on with , planning on a trip to Townsville looks like a handy strip to where I was going to stay
  3. Insurance went from $2500. To $3700. After a claim for $8000 For my Sabre valued at $60,000 QBE , is it possible to do any better, considering dropping it
  4. Just noticed on a post on Facebook about a 24 rego Tecnam landing at Gold Coast, I asked the question and was told they had a transponder and submitted a flight plan and unless you have CTA experience it should not be done , is this legal , Greg
  5. Have you ever been asked to produce an asic at any airport,
  6. I guess leave it turned off, seems like another waste of money, bit like asic
  7. Any truth in the rumour that we have to fit transponders in our raa aircraft in the near future
  8. Without the indicator I haven’t got a clue where it’s set until I leave the ground
  9. Got the rubber wheel, clogged up pretty quick, because it’s under the wing makes it hard to soak it ,so far metho soaked rag and fingernails , been at it off and on for hours , about half way there, thanks everyone for the advice
  10. Tried citrus also carby and brake cleaner , surely there’s something that would dissolve the glue but not the paint
  11. WD40 is about the only thing I haven’t tried, what is isopropanol, tried all the paint thinners , metho, turps, acetone ,tried RP7 is that the same as WD 40, my hand still sticks to it , driving me nuts
  12. Got the rego numbers, with a heat gun, removed from under the wing, now I’m stuck with the sticky glue residue left behind , tried everything to dissolve it , any ideas?
  13. My trim indicator , series of leds , is showing out of range , gaps at the bottom , over full at the top, unsure how to adjust, something to do with the trim motor in the elevator I’m thinking , any ideas, thanks , Greg
  14. Mate just bought a jab with a microair radio, for some reason the display lights up when the avionics is switched on but no frequencies show up also when he turns off the knob on the set the display stays on ,the aircraft is new , any ideas
