    Dear all, As has thankfully been guessed, my account was indeed hacked last night (we have now solved this problem of course) The Police are involved so I can't say too much more at this stage but please fear not and also!!! I am going nowhere and nor is the site!. So you can stay feeling happy, you should also know that the Club site does not hold ANY banking or personal information about you (thats WHY we use paypal) You honestly have nothing to worry about. I do of course need to suss out all of the cancelled subscriptions and how to rectify that. But I am confident. As I say, It's hard for me to say anything more about this at the moment but I will send out more info when I know I can. Once again, please do bear with me and I will pop out stronger! SW
  5. Just come back from 2 weeks caravanning near Tintagel and have been past the Davidstowe airfield and wondered what it was about. Anyone know the web address?
  6. Just to ask if there are any other Paramotor flyers in South Wiltshire, I have just started after some training with Simon at Membury and have a local farmers flat hay field field nearby. I fly a Parajet Maverick Sport, Mostar 185 and an Ozone Roadster 2 and have had a couple of nice flights. Would like to meet other flyers to gain experience and advice.

    I've received the same emails and the last one indicates that whoever it is has made off with our names and our email addresses so best to change our email addresses?

    Seems my subscription was also stopped, I assume Simon did this to protect members from incorrect or fraudulent billing. Once the issue is resolved I assume we will be informed so we can fix it. Good luck.

    Simon's account has been hacked. Malicious mails from a coward. Best ignored until he confirms it's resolved.

  15. Hi. I am headed to training in December by Eric Dufour in Florida. Then buying something. I look forward to the adventure. I just ordered the Bible v6 as a start. I just retired from flying and ride adventure bikes (motorcycles).

  18. Okay, If you are feeling brave and have "some" diagnostic skills....(or willing to learn some new things)... it seems most people with old Baileys have opted for the Lipo option. They take a little more caring for than lead acids. The following are "Slow Boat from China" prices (ebay) £16 I use one of these £26 (I couldn't find the exact model I use) This one is marked as a C60... not sure I believe that but as long as its at least a C20, that would give you 150 cranking Amps £3.... XT60 solder one of these to your battery leads You will need to cut the charging wire (one snipped wire doesn't sound so bad ) According to this drawing, its the yellow wire (I thought mine was white) I don't THINK either are being used on our machines. I could walk you through that if you chose to commit to the option.... you would basically need to confirm (with your meter) that there is no charge voltage getting to the battery when its running (you want 12.6v or whatever the battery is charged to and not the 14v or whatever the magneto is pumping out) It may seem a little complex but in practice, you are snipping one wire and soldering a new battery connector. Charging off the motor is not quite as nice as having it charge onboard but its no big deal and they are very lightweight compared to the lead acid batterie's.
  19. I’m crap with electronics! I do have a multimeter but have never used it Always prepared to learn new skills though
  20. I am going to assume not. Its a sealed lead acid with rather small terminals so might be a tad weak on the cranking amps or might not last long under such high discharge. If it cheap, it might be worth a punt for the science but be prepared for it to fail early in its life. How are you with electronics? Do you have a multimeter?
  21. Polini Thor 202 owners. Can you please provide feed back on this new motor
  22. Last week
  23. Are there any options for replacing the coloured hoop on a maverick? I've no need to right now, but my understanding was this was the expensive bit rather than the actual netting. Or is the hoop itself fairly bulletproof and its usually just the netting that gets damaged?
  24. Thanks, I will order some to play around with.
  25. I got BN2074-06 I bought 2m x 3m but because the net on the Mav is kind of cut diagonal I had to join it. Still loads left. That cost £4.96 including a surcharge for small quantity. Then it was a fiver postage. I’d probably buy 6x6 next time to get it in one piece and have enough for 3 or 4 nets.
  26. Brilliant, that is really worth knowing. Could you post the part number for the netting, there are several pigeon nets listed on the Hucks site.
  27. Could anyone tell me the correct battery I need for my Bailey v4 please? It looks like the previous owner has taped two together and I’m struggling to find what I need to fit in the gap. Thanks
