Thruster Parts (Australia)


Recommended Posts

Hi team,


I have recently purchased a TST/300 and putting her back in the air.


Was in storage for sometime so a few bits missing.


I am chasing the small bushes that fit at the front of the fin (under and below the fues tube).

 

Does anyone know of any or have any!

 

Look forward to sharing more about this little jigger when she is finished!


Cheers Mark

Technically you cannot make any modifications without approval, a costly process. Although I have a t500 the t300 is nice if you want to look around, having 360° visibility. One advantage of the back

Another thruster has followed me home. Almost free, it has good potential to return to the sky. Engine has no data plate, it is a dual carb but with smaller bing 84 carbs not the usual 54, think it mi

The t85 single cleaned up nicely. Every thing is tight and beautifully engineered. Steve Cohen did a fantastic job with the Thruster.

Get a mate with a lathe or a machine shop to turn some up out of nylon bar. Good to hear of another thruster restoration.

Great to hear BrendAn!

 

I think they are a lot of fun to fly - ive only flown T500 so far but mine should be airworthy soon. Still waiting on a few parts.

 

Found a LAME who runs a machine shop - so he is making the bits I need 🙂

 

Seems that half of Tasmania has flown my plane at some stage - so its has a great history.

 

Love to see pics of your T300 🙂

I almost bought one many years ago.

Was at the  cafe, on the Pacific highway, Brooklyn, Sydney. 

THEN the place burnt down.

Reward Him/her handsomely. I'm sure you will have some thrilling moments. Till the mid 80's there were NO 2 seater Thrusters and some how or other the world kept turning.. Nev

I'd come down to give you helpful advice but I'm in 'lockdown'. (Sounds like we are a mob of Ned Kelly's doesn't it?)

Yes. I can't even pick the thruster up because of the border restrictions atm.   Stupid state governments.  This is one country which should have handled covid as one not splitting up into seperate dictatorships .

Thats great to know. I might have to pick your brains along the way.  Sounds like you miss having the thruster.  Do you fly anything at the moment.

'Day Brendan, I sold the Thruster because I wasn't confident of access to airfield in the future. Yes, I miss it but have access to a club Jabby when not locked in. Have flown Thrusters for 30 odd years, think they are a mighty trainer (tailwheel, of course). Our CFI said that if you could fly one well you could fly anything.

Don't know if I'd go THAT far. A thruster is like a thruster and it's just a bit different especially if you want to 3 point it. Most people don't and that's ok if the field isn't rough.. Nev

Landing a mirage (like all delta's) is very nose up. It would be vastly different but a good pilot adapts, because you must..  A thruster pilot going to a Jabiru 230 would find the doubling of speed "different". Nev
