  1. I thoroughly agree
  2. I've been reading Internet forums for a loooooooooong time (probably too long and I think I can honestly say I've never seen anyone dig such a big hole for themselves....astounding
  3. Its really pretty, but the flight model for the prop singles is not great in some aspects, Landing the taildraggers is way too easy you have to try hard to mess up, you can climb at <Vx with no rudder needed to keep the ball centered and on the take-off roll the slightest crosswind from the right (2-3 knots) will completely overcome the tendency of the included taildraggers to swing left on raising the tail and swing you the opposite way as if the crosswind was 10+ knots..... very unrealistic Turbulence seems well modelled Its multiplayer function is awesome Overall X-
  4. Agree on the lack of tech pieces in UK Mags and far too much emphasis on personal stories of some awesome trip which generally have the same effect on me as people showing their holiday snaps and describing how great the service was at the Tapas Bar. Saying that, the last Flyer mag had some good stuff

    Jab engines

    Should I close the Jab Engines group?, it seems to be superflous with 99% of activity in this thread. Probably better to keep all the info in one place....what you think?
  6. Hello Bruce, I'm a newcomer to Jabs, but have a lot of time on Rotax 912 which uses same carbs I tend to view Hoses as an 'on condition' component carb overhaul for the bings If I havn't touched them in 5 years then I will take apart and replace anything needed )Diaphragms I change regardless of how they look). Carb Socket I will also change if it has lasted 5 years (in my experience some can go bad much sooner) I use only Ethanol free fuel, if using fuel with Ethanol id be looking very regularly at my hoses and carb floats Jabiru Fuel pump is a bit of an unknown to me right now
  7. Such a shame these projects ended up in the hands of Walter Mitty
  8. Flightrite I am running Iridium plugs in a 2200. I fitted them as I was changing to resistor plugs to tackle some interference and decided to use Iridium resistor plugs to counter possible harder starting due to extra resistance They seem to be performing well with easy starts
  9. I use Yuasa Batteries on my microlights and motorcycles, they don't claim wonders but they do what it says on the tin and are realisticly priced, never had a duff one not surprising really given their experience at making the things
  10. Can't find anything about the LAA Jab course, got a Link or other reference mate?, Id be interested in attending.
  11. Red, No I don't deal in truck parts. Before I retired I was dealing in aircraft hardware. Now the only hardware I deal in are nails and wood glue :oh yeah:

      Yes I was
  12. I believe they are structural stiffeners above the wheel wells fitted after the wings on some early mark 5s rippled in that area under +G and it was later replaced with thicker skins in the area P.S. Spitfire wing types could probably fill a book, there where loads of variants PPS.......Emu do you by any chance deal with aftermarket truck bits?
  13. Brinky, I have similar safety straps on my bungee gear and also they seem completely inadequate...in fact http://www.lightaircraftassociation.co.uk/2015/Magazine/Oct/safety_spot.pdf though tbh the strap does seem heavier gauge than the one in the OP
  14. "I've read that Rotax carbs are not clamped to their rubbers so that they are dislodged by wild engine vibrations, automatically cutting off their fuel. " Koreelah, Rotax Carbs fit to their boots exactly the same as a jab carb, if it had no clamp it would get thrown off every start they do get thrown off sometimes, I've had it happen, but that is only because of the very violent shakes they sometimes exhibit with bad starts on a cold unbalanced engine installation with no airbox supporting the intake end of the carb as in Skyrangers etc
