  1. How insulting to all the grieving victims of this mass murder. Can’t believe any thinking person could support this abomination of a conspiracy theory.
  2. Tried to buy some engine mounts for my homebuilt trike from Flexible Drive long time ago. When I mentioned what they were for they refused point blank to sell them to me. Had to send a mate in to buy them for a go-cart. That seemed to work lol.
  3. I co-owned one for 10 years from 2004. It was a joy to fly. We had a 618 which was discontinued by Rotax but it proved to be very reliable & I believe there is a company in the states that can do a re-build including the crankshaft. Airframe quality was fine, simple bolted tubing, easy to inspect & maintain.
  4. Thanks for that but both the landline & mobile have been disconnected. I spoke to Steve in November as we wanted to go up then but he said that the strip was unserviceable as it needed mowing & he didn't have the time that weekend as they had had a death in the family & he had to attend the funeral. Just hope he is ok.
  5. Does anyone have contact details for the owner of this property, Steve Price. A couple of us nanolight flyers want to spend a few days flying round the Grampians & Steve's place is ideal with cabins next to the strip. We have flown out of here on a few occasions & can usually contact him through his website. Unfortunately this no longer exists & his landline is not connected. Pretty sure he had a mobile, so if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
  6. According to a report I have read, the area to the North of the road is being turned into a solar collection farm & the viewing area is expected to be closed for 18 months.
  7. Hard clay soil, no problem. Not sure about rocky ground but small rocks shouldn't present a problem. Big rocks, just move around until you find clear ground?
  8. Sorry, don't have a brand name. I think these came from Aldi. Just google screw in tent pegs & many options will show up. Bunnings have metal ones & another company seems to have ones with a greater diameter which could be better in sandy soil.
  9. Mister screwits are just too much hard work. I use this
  10. Hi Mike, you appear to be near a mate of mine ,Paul Madigan. We have flown in to one of his paddocks years ago. Also landed at a strip near the North coast & the prison airstrip when it was operational.
  11. Cobden is a really friendly strip. Lakes entrance landing fees are pretty steep. There is a strip at the top of the hill before you get to the township but not sure of the go there.
  12. Was called Hanger 9, wonderful source of bits & pieces. Managed to build my first trike using hardware from them. You could just wander up & down the aisles picking out what you needed & inhaling that fabulous hanger smell. A box full of AN nuts & bolts would cost only a few dollars. Happy days.
  13. My thoughts are with you & your family Ian, all the very best to you all.
  14. Good fun Ian, I did the 60 minute 737-800 experience a couple of years ago & managed 3 circuits at Kai Tak & 3 at Princess Juliana. managed 4 landings & 2 arrivals:ecstatic:.
  15. Try this for size, not sure of pricing Aeros - Trikes & Wings for trike. Believe the first one has arrived in Oz.
  16. A real gentleman & fun to fly with. Condolences to Barb.
  17. Will be sadly missed, condolences to Barb.
  18. Hi Carlos & welcome. Any news on when you will go to air with the footage from your visit to Clint Dickenson's strip by lake Eppaloch?
  19. BRS quote 260-290 ft agl but state that speed is also a major factor in a successful low altitude recovery
  20. I think the main strip is bitumen now
  21. Message received....will be in touch...Rgds Pete
  22. Hi & Thanks Skeptic, that is very kind of you. I am planning to come with a mate who also has an Aeros & ideally we would like to be able to drop the wings & have them under cover overnight, but please pm me your number Pete
