    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
  2. i remember the good old days about 15 years ago a friend and myself flew a thruster tst and single seat thruster into tamworth airport,with permission for an airshow,both had single ignition 503 rotax's
  3. 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.
