    This Heat!

    It tows it from the tie down line to hangar and back nicely. Beats doing it by hand in this bloody heatwave.

    This Heat!

    Cover I had made for my Sting . Fully padded and protects from hail and sun. It takes about 5 minutes to remove and install with 2 people a little longer to install by yourself.Its too heavy and bulky to take in aircraft but I have factory canopy cover for trips away.Bird deterrence on the tail made from a piece of pvc and cable ties also works well.

    It's doing hi resolution mapping in the area and has been operating in the area for some time .I got this information off the local helicopter charter in Roma as they frequently operate in the area .They were notified by email of its operations.

    No such thing as a bargain

    Look on the bright side mate ,you will have to fly the route again.I bought a cheapie $100 from supa cheap for my race car ,footage was ok but any vibration ( lots on a drag car ) it created a horrible buzzing noise .I used it on my helmet skiing in New Zealand and it worked great.I havnt tried it in the plane yet.

    TL Carbon Sting S3 Pros and Cons

    Oscar do you have any links to reports to provide evidence of your claim of poor structural integrity of the Sting in an accident as I would not want to put myself or passengers at risk if I purchased the aircraft ?
