  1. Sorry for the thread drift!...This morning!!!Back to topic. I can tell you all for a fact, that it takes more than money!!!....Franco.
  2. Well!, it`s still happening at Deeral.....I took two of these three lovely ladies, Drifter flying, this morning! first Ultralight flight for both of them and I think the photos say it all. Franco.
  3. G`Day Don, good to see you`re still flying! I`ve had 4, 582 grey head, with a total of 2120 hrs, and don`t recall ever having carby icing! not saying it can`t happen, however, carby icing is pretty hard to prove.

Condensation is caused by a temperature difference between a surface and humid air, effectively lowering the temperature of the surrounding air to below the vapor point. I would say that your carb is getting cold as compared to the ambient air. This could be due to the low pressure in the venturi or from the gasoline flowi
  4. Merry Christmas to you also, Nev.
  5. I hope you got, I was kidding... I will continue to try and make even more people enjoy flying, Drifter flying, that is! for as long as I can! I have two ladies coming to fly with me, for their first time, tomorrow morning...Merry Christmas to you also.

  8. The old and the new.... Yesterday I met and got to nurse our nine day old Great-Grand-Daughter, Sadie Jayne Cheetham, for the first time. Our Grand-Son, Matthew Cheetham and his wife Keah also have a son, four year old Nate, so now Nate has a sister and Frances and I have five Great-Grand-Daughters and three Great-Grand-Sons...Franco
