  1. I recently bought a new ICOM A15 radio and would like to get a battery eliminator to run it off the aircraft battery (12v). Our club Drifters are fitted with them but they no longer appear to be a ICOM spare. It is a battery case with a lead able to be connected to A 12v source. Anyone know where I can obtain one? Wayne
  2. On the second day iof our Fly-in today, the most interesting Beastie was a ProTech Merlin. An ALL Metal single seat deregulated aeroplane which was absolutely Gorgeous. . I have pictures, but this stupid Bloody Windows Ten upgrade I've got refuses to read any of my UsB sticks. . .I am on the verge of dumping it and swapping to Debian / Linux. The aircraft is, regrettably, single seat, and weighs in at 300Kgs. . . I hop that the company produce a 2 seat version which would fit nicely into the UK 600 Kg slot, or probably somewhat less. , It looked remarkably like a Jabiru as it entered the overhead today. It is powered by a Rotax 582 inverted, oil injected 2 stroke, and it cruises at a comfortable 90 MPH. I'll have another bash at the pics I took and see if I can bamboozle Win 10, , , ##EDIT. . .here's their website. . http://digitalpilotschool.com/check-out-the-tech-pro-merlin-ssdr-single-seat-aircraft/
  3. In line with the proposed Site Menu Structure: What's New Forums Clubs Blogs Events Media - with sub sections of Gallery, Videos, Articles, Aviation News Resources - with sub sections of Downloads, Maps, Links, Tutorials, Tools and Calculators, Quizzes Reference - with sub sections of Aircraft, On This Day, Famous People, plus any other reference items Commerce - with sub sections of Classifieds, Suppliers, Pilot Shop, Product Reviews Members - with sub sections of Leader board, Online Users, Staff, Site Support (as it is now) Off Topic I have now created the new Resources Section. In this section, available by clicking Resources on the main menu, you will find the sub sections for Downloads, Tutorials, Google Earth Maps for Airstrips, Airports and Members. Coming soon to this section will be all the different Pilot Tools and Calculators and a whole new Quizzes sub section In the Media Section we are still building the Articles and Aviation News sub sections
  4. This article appeared in the Sydney newspaper, The Sun, on Monday, 4th September 1939 https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/page/24700144
  5. It has been a good last few weeks for the site in our quest to having the greatest single repository of all information a recreational aviator needs to enjoy their flying safely and being more informed. All the Aircraft listings from the old site have now been migrated and @red750 is doing a great job on adding more and more aircraft into the aircraft section to act as a reference point on all the different aircraft out there...thanks Red More and more Events are getting added to the Event Calendar by @Old Koreelah helping us all to know what events we may like to attend in our flying activities, thanks O'K We have a new site Homepage that hopefully portrays an inviting message to all who visit us and hopefully get them to join in. The Clubs section has been renamed to "Groups" to reflect more of what that feature provides...still a little more work to do on that one Slowly we are getting the John Brandon Tutorials into the site which meets our objective of pilot education...give these a read to keep the information fresh to make our flying safer. I have also been slowly migrating many of the videos from the old site over to here. We now have the Maps section which not only adds all the Airstrips into a Google Earth Map but also site users that will enable members to perhaps go for a fly and meet up with other site members and form new friendships all having the same interest in recreational flying Thanks to the great @Ahmed Zayed the site has an amended Whats New, an accepted new site theme and many other improvements, some obvious and others not so obvious like enhancements with the Facebook and Twitter login, core software upgrades, Weekly Email, and many more so a huge thanks to Ahmed. And above all thanks to you the user for your great contributions to the site and creating an enjoyable environment and let's not forget the fantastic work that the Moderators do in supporting that enjoyable environment What's happening next... Ahmed and I are looking into bringing the Aviation News section back and are exploring different ways to bring the latest aviation news to everyone here. This will also support the new Articles System and Special Picks of Interest system I have commenced work with an IPS guru on server performance. I have been waiting for 6 months for him to become available and today we started the exchange of finer details for him to start work in a few weeks. This may see us end up with 3 servers spread across the world that continually exchange data so a user will experience fast performance no matter where they are in the world so hopefully we will see a greater international audience contributing to the discussions we have here on Recreational Flying (.com). So, I will continue with the Tutorial migration and the Video migration plus start experimenting with many different new sections like Famous Aviators, On This Day, Aviation Product Reviews and more. Also on the agenda is to migrate Clear Prop into the site but a Payment Gateway needs to be developed first before that happens. Hope this post keeps you in the loop on the site/resource moving forward and as ALWAYS, any suggestions on how we can improve the site for you is always appreciated...thanks
  6. Sad to hear that the last UK flexwing manufacturer has gone into administration. No idea what that means for P&M Australia and ongoing parts support for what in Australia are type approved airframes now without a manufacturer https://www.bmaa.org/information-library/news/bmaa-news/p-m-aviation
  7. Here at Warwick we have an Indian company which has been negotiating with the council to operate a flying school at the airfield. Now, by all accounts the council has agreed to let them use the terminal building as an office and apparently to supply them with a hangar. (I stand to be corrected if I am wrong, any Warwick councillors on this forum?) Anyway, today I noticed that a large sign has been erected on one of the new hangars at the Western end of the airfield. The sign says RMP Aviation which I googled, It turns out to be a private Indian company. (I am therefore making an assumption that this is the company proposing to operate the flying school, again I stand to be corrected!) Interesting fact if you look at the company, it is worth “1 lakh of rupees with a fully paid up capital of 1000%” Now, not being familiar with Indian currency I looked up what 1 lakh of rupees is in AU$ and it is currently roughly $2300 which means that, including their 1000% fully paid up capital , the company is worth less than $25000 and our council is bending over backwards. Do you for one minute think, that if I turned up with $25000 dollars, the council would do the same for me? Please, someone else follow through and confirm these figures.
  8. It took everyone by surprise when the C-27J Spartan went inverted during it's handling display at the 2015 Avalon Air Show. I have just posted a video in the Media section showing a LM-100J Super Hercules doing the same, pulling off a loop. Then when the list of other similar videos came up on the side of the Youtube page, there was one for the Airbus A300M performing an inverted display as well. When can we expect a loop in the A380?
  9. At about 10.45 this morning there was an incident at Bendigo requiring ambulance and fire brigade attendance. I overflew the site and saw an aircraft in the middle of the runway intersection, surrounded by firefighting foam. The aircraft appeared intact but I could not tell whether it was inverted. From the colour, it may have been one of the training school Foxbats.
  10. Testing out the off airport operation of the Zenith Cruzer and STOL capability with 160hp
  11. I am sure that all users get a lot out of the site and there is still a lot more to come in the coming months but as you would have guessed, it does take a huge amount of time (more than a full time job) and money ($250 a month just for the hosting) to keep the site going. Over the years some members have gratefully donated towards some of the site costs by becoming First Class Members for a year and I thank them so much for their continued support. So like the old site I have created a small box in the side column of many of the site sections where you can click the button and be taken to the Donations and First Class Membership page for anyone that would like to support the site. Corrine, the kids and I thank you very much for your support
  12. Here is a build log video of my recently completed scratch built zenith 750 Cruzer It is an absolute blast to fly .
  13. Hi all I’m new to this site and thought I’d share my custom engine installation video , i recently finished my scratch built Zenith 750 Cruzer https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU142N8QeW5HsukLxNOeEiQ thanks Mike
  14. This was just a fun flight to a remote(ish) location by four Sonex drivers. Here's a link to my blog. And a couple of photos. Peter Anson

    STOL comp winner!

    I hear that the winner of the recent STOL competition at Lismore was a Savannah! Against all those tail draggers with huge special wheels. Irony is that the prize was a fancy tailwheel, after he'd just demonstrated that he didn't need one!
  16. Just purchased an iCOM A15 handheld radio from Ian for less than $300. A bargain as new model coming out will see an increase of around 50%. kaz
  17. Going through a collection of Pinterest emails, I came across this link from 8 days ago. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/03/14/trump-wanted-his-personal-pilot-head-faa-critical-job-is-still-vacant-amid-boeing-fallout/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.06e5302ed934
  18. I flew my Brumby over HMAS Otama today, an Oberon class submarine decommissioned in 2000 and parked off Crib Point since 2002. Surprisingly I hadn't noticed it before! It reminded me of my grandfather, who in July 1917 as a Flight Sub-Lieutenant in the Royal Naval Air Service, was involved in bombing an enemy U boat. He was flying a Curtiss Model H12 flying boat, a twin-engine aircraft with a crew of four (pictured). His log book (which I have) reveals he then had around 90 hours flight time. It also reveals he went solo on his 14th flight with only two hours 15 minutes experience, he first flew the Curtiss (twin) with less than five hours total time and he had his first forced landing (carby icing) at around nine hours! Things have changed!
  19. Heard 5 aircraft fly over this afternoon in formation including some Bi-Planes and remembered there is a gathering of de Havilland aircraft at YCAB tomorrow. Copy of email sent earlier this month. https://mailchi.mp/5ac3fd30ed85/dehavilland-note-to-members?e=29084e70e5
  20. While researching the MRH-90 for the Aircraft profile, I discovered this item dated yesterday, 24/7/19. https://www.canberratimes.com.au/story/6290013/defence-grounds-navy-and-army-mrh-90-helicopters/
  21. I wanted to follow the gas pipelines that carry gas to the export port at Gladstone. Finally got perfect weather for the flight. https://followingthegas.blogspot.com/2019/07/following-gas-to-export-httpswww.html
