  1. I was performing an inspection on a Wizard 3 wing today and i found something a little bit interesting. It appears that where the x-bars join each other they have been chaffing on the keel tube. This lump of nylon is obviously supposed to stop this happening but it doesn't. A quick bit of comparing another wizard wing nearby showed no such contact and the nylon lump doing its just well enough. Anyone had this problem before or can share why this is happening. New keel tube will be ordered once all parts are determined. Thanks for any help. Cheers Nick
  2. there is one on turpentine rd close to the braidwood end.
  3. Thats sounds an awful lot like lock stock and two smoking barrels
  4. Agreed, i would like to pay only once for insurance but it seems like i will have to join HGFA and RAA seems sillyand quite unfair when you can only fly one aircraft at a time. If all four merged together and truly looked after ALL members interests we really would be onto a winner. Financially makes lots of sense too.
  5. So basically from reading all this we whine about every manufacturers problems and slag off Rotax's prices!!!!! If you want to fly instead of faff about open your wallet and spend the Cash. i truly believe that the Rotax cant be beat for $$ per effortless flying time. 1200 hrs on mine and just getting sweeter.
  6. Im based at the shadow flight centre @ old sarum airfield in salisbury uk. I love the shadows but a jab?? seriously?? hows it cope with cooling? Just been up in York rescuing one that got blown over in its trailer thankfully the tailboom will be ok as these are rare as hens teeth. enjoy the plane and the lack of second flight passengers. i hate the back seat.
  7. you got it wrong. Real aircraft are made of fabric mate. ;-)
  8. 10hrs from melbourne, 2hrs from canberra, 2hrs from sydney, 12hrs from brisbane. maybe goulburn is a better option. Just make sure its regional
  9. most RA types could be accepted in the Nowra area. I could even arrange free landing for association business flights at my own private strip. wages and cost of living are relativly low so why not?
  10. Nowra Nsw good enough for the RAN FAA.
  11. I have two communica headsets and the unit and two PTT buttons on my trike. they are cheap as chips in the UK check out www.afors.com and ebay uk and something will turn up. Does anyone use lynx in australia?
  12. Are syndicates allowed under RA? how many people?
  13. On that topic does anyone in australia use skydemon? Can anyone let me know what they believe to be the best for basic trike flying? Cheers
  14. Why do you need a club?? If you want to fly old rag and tube machines just do it. Support is available through forums these days.
  15. Thanks for sharing, wonder if we should drop some gliders from our planes for shits and giggles?
