    I have one registered at 760kg, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.

    SSB Lithium Iron batteries

    Lithium batteries are well known for requiring a warm up before they crank at full capacity. The recommendation in vehicles is to run the headlights for a few minutes. MARKDUN, do you have any more details regarding the blue smoke and molten copper, particularly what overheated and what melted. Mike

    ADS-B receivers

    One that i made using the ADSB pi link that was available on the Ozrunways site, although I used a Gen 3 Raspberry Pi and didn't have to buy the wifi portion. I am not sure that the link exists anymore, at the time I saved it to my hard drive for later use, which I used when the time came to put it all together. I am planning to change the card to a stratux version and introducing traffic into my MGL EFIS at some stage as well.

    On mine the Oz traffic is light blue and the ADSB traffic (From Raspberry pi) is dark blue
  6. Landed there a couple of years ago, just rang the resort and they sent someone out, even though we were only in a tent at the campground. There wasn't a charge. Mike

    skippydiesel This is what I had envisaged for attachment to the cap when I was thinking about doing the same thing. Mike

    Spill Resistant Refueling ??

    If you use using a bladder what about just a hose on the cap and use your foot to compress it the bladder and force fuel up the hose, then when it is light enough you can lift what is left. Would take the same pressure either way.

    New vhf radios

    The V6 is still available from Aircraft Spruce and MGL USA, who I believe now manufacture it as they purchased the licence from South Africa.

    New vhf radios

    Jaba These may help. Also have a look at the MGL V16, only two place intercom though. (Rainier did say that it could be wired for 4 places if you used identical headsets all round) Mike Dual v6.txt Dual v6.txt Dual V10 diagram 25-May 2010.pdf

    Flyboard anyone?

    I thought the backpack may have been fuel, didn't really look like a parachute, but was definitely wearing an inflatable yoke.

    Where would you take a foreign flyer?

    spacesailor, when were last at Dalhousie and how hard was it to get permission to land. Everything I hear suggests it is quite difficult. Flew over the top a couple of years ago and wasn't game to try our luck with a landing.
