    Hi Richard I owned that thruster from about 1991 to about 1995 and was a great plane to fly ,maybe even better than my current t300 because it is way lighter, could land it anywhere. One of the best flights I had in it was from Tamworth to south west rocks and then to evans head at 500 foot most of the way for the great eastern flyin ,landing on the beach to refuel and to ring up Coffs control tower for clearance thru zone as I didn't have radio . Gotta love the old days Cheers Corky

    Where to buy 5.00x5 tyres?

    Hi Avion,i got 6.00 x 6,6ply tyres off ebay for 60 dollars each,or you could try a mower shop as some shops carry 6 ply front tyres for ride on mowers.

    Hi Tony,I am also rebuilding a clipped wing single seat(1984 ),and need to make the wing struts(lost by previous owner),so will be very interested in the strut measurements and if there was any washout ,I'm yet to source the tubing though. Cheers Corky

    The effect of the audit..dang!!!

    G'day flyerme Catto props are excellent,but did u mention to Howard that u had a E Gearbox on your 582,as that size seems too small(66 x 44).I used a 64 x 42 catto on my old 503 with B gearbox and got 6500 rpm,Just concerned about underpropping. Cheers Corky
