  1. I spoke to an Oz Runways rep at a trade show last year and asked if they could look at making a version for open frame recreational aircraft with simplified functions and larger flight info to make it easier to read in that environment. I took two things away from the conversation, the first being that it is not a simple exercise and and the second was that is not their target market.

    Looking for an unwanted operational panel mount compass. For a home- build Gyro project. Price negotiable. Thanks


  3. Was wondering the same, no response from the original post in 2012. I am curious to hear about the experiences of anyone who has been involved in Australian online training since.
  4. So, I would like to hard wire install a ICOM A15 VHF handheld and a panel mount GME 3100 UHF radio into an open frame Gyro. I would like to monitor both radios and simultaneously and select which to transmit on. Would like to be able to hear the transmit and use a PTT on the stick. Is there anyone I could send the radios to and have a system put together or some diagram of how this works best so I can have a go myself. There doesn't seem to be a simple plug and play available.
  5. This advert is COMPLETED!

    WANTED TO BUY - A 2nd hand Microair 760 Radio wiring harness. Price negotiable. I am aware they can be purchased new from the manufacturer and will take that path if I have no luck finding a used kit.


  6. I am wondering if anyone can help out with hangarage at Scone for a small open frame gyro on Monday and Tuesday night next week.
  7. Been away from the forum for a couple of years busy being busy and didn't enjoy the changes, anyway back on board and thrilled to see Bex is back! Unreal!

  9. brinykraut it is mad max country! Mad Max filmed out near Silverton and some awesome trips and adventures still to be had in Far West NSW. Bourke and Wills did part of the Darling river and split their party at Menindee way back in the 1860s. You are right though, much easier to fly over! I learnt to fly Gyrocopters this year so want to fly the length of the Darling then the Murray as one of my first adventures. Planning to do the trip as a small group next year. That should be fun.
  10. Today we finally flew the Darling river between Menindee and Wilcannia today. Have covered it in each direction beyond that but for some reason had never done this short hop. Not much water in it around Wilcannia at the moment, mostly deep holes. Wilcannia township from the East looking West with the Barrier Highway centre. The Wilcannia strip is top right. The Darling River has a river distance of around 400km between Wilcannia and Menindee but is only 130km direct. Below - taken not far from Menindee.
  11. An early morning trip Flight home today took me past the Menindee Lake System in Far West NSW. Lake Wetherall (below) part of the Darling River system still with some water. Below. An empty Lake Menindee looking south with Lake Tandour off in the background The village of Sunset Strip on the edge of Lake Menindee have lost their water views with what looks like sand dunes forming on the Lake bed.
  12. Flight this morning from Stephens Creek to White Cliffs for a milkshake and a bucket of hot chips. By 11.00am it was rough as guts up to 7500ft, spew bag on the ready for my young bloke but to his credit he held on. Not a rain cloud in sight. Easy 10 minute stroll into town from the strip and well worth putting on the destination list for a couple of days. Above; 3500ft heading out before the thermals started getting too exited. Welcome to White Cliffs !!! ASIC not required!
  13. The Silver City Recreational Aircraft Club Broken Hill is exited to announce we will be hosting the 2019 ASRA Nationals. The event program is under development and will be published in the next few months and published in the ASRA magazine - Gyro News We are aiming to have a fun, family friendly, back to basics event. On behalf of the club thanks to the ASRA board who have been really supportive. Please book the date and have a plan to fly/drive/ride/train/bus with your partner/kids/mates/guitar and make a trip of it.
  14. Noticed on the RAA website today that in the members section under the Aircraft tab is a registration search function with a "coming soon" note. Curious to know how much information will be included here and when it will be online, airport operators will be hopeful. Here is the screen dump.
  15. Well I don't know how to fix this but I am very pleased there are people like Giles who are prepared to get in and help. Yes a hero, yes courageous and yes doing what he could to help people who, clearly, were not able to help themselves. I would hope I have the courage to step up if the need arose and equally hope if I needed help people would step up as well.
