  2. Hi Neil, I had to look up Deddick Valley, I'd heard of it, a long way from me by road, 4-4.5 hours by road, maybe 1 hour by air, across some serious tiger country. Yes, it would be good to talk to your Foxbat friend. I've been a bit put off by the cockpit ergonomics of the A22. I've not flown one, I've had 1.5 hrs on the A32 with the Y stick, that was OK, seemed to have more adverse yaw than some I've flown. I didn't realise the Sav agent was in Bendigo, their website is difficult to navigate & only has a phone number. A real pity as I was in Bendigo recently. I will be at both AirVenture & AusFly, I've paid for accommodation at both places. I would welcome the chance to have a talk with you. My email is [email protected] Did you build your Sav or is it a factory job? Regards, Peter
  3. I've been looking at the Zenith 750 STOL, which also has the horizontal stabiliser 'upside down'. I was wondering why other makes don't do this, if it's such a good idea. I see the 750 Cruzer has a 'normal' horizontal stabiliser, as does the 750 Special Duty model. Thanks for the input.
  4. I've looked at the Skyranger website, the Nynja is interesting, I'm hoping I can find one to look at. I'll be at both Parkes & Narromine shows in a few months, I hope I'll find a Nynja amongst the fly in aircraft at these shows.
  5. Thanks Neil, I'd looked thru the ICP site & thought they might have produced a table or spreadsheet that summarised the differences. I'll have to extract the info about each model & build my own. Thanks for responding, as you replied to my query on the Savannah forum, does this mean that you're a Savannah driver yourself? If so, I'd be interested in any thoughts you might like to share about Savannah vs Foxbat vs Zenith. Thanks, Peter
  6. Anyone know where I can find a table that compares specs of the different Savannah models. XL, VG, S ADV ?
  7. Is there any substance to this story?
  8. I posted on 11 JAN 18 that, in my search for TL 3000 Sirius owners, I found 4 happy & 1 unhappy. I've had feedback that some members of this discussion group have focused more on the one 'unhappy' comment, rather than the four 'happy'. Since the original post, I've now been in contact with eight owners, seven of whom are happy. The detailed opinions & experiences of the 'happy' owners has been overwhelmingly positive and I'm seriously considering buying one. Have a look on the large number of Facebook sites on TL Ultralight for more info. Incidentally, I heard that they are changing the company name to TL Aviation. I'm happy to chat about what I've learnt & interested to talk to any other owners I haven't yet found.
  9. It's probably a GSAP (Gunsight aiming point) but a strange one, given the height, speed settings on the face of it. In the days of Sabres, Mirages, Macchis etc, a similar device was mounted on the top of the panel. The 'Pipper', the aiming point, was shown, via a collimator onto the glass, providing the pilot with the lead necessary for the relative speeds & angles between the combatants. It was an early form of HUD (head up display). The ones I'm familiar with were gyro controlled & the base unit was much thicker than the one shown, as the gyro was contained in the panel mounted device. Other comments about gunship use might make sense in view of the speed & altitude setting controls, somewhat slower than the Sabres & Mirages of old.
  10. Since my first message I've now found 4 owners, 3 happy, 1 very unhappy, plus yourself. Would like to phone you to ask you some questions, if you've the time & inclination. Peter
  11. Thanks for the info on Merimbula, a way better way to deal with a renewal than the alternatives, much appreciated !!
  12. Who's the contact at Merimbula? I understand that that's where the ASIC processing place is, I haven't been able to find out where they are, address, if they deal with individual applications or just do bulk processing. Any info would be appreciated...Thanks
  13. REX flys into Moruya so that will be a 'secure' airport!
