  3. I have been flying the school machine all through the weekend and it has had no issues at all. All very bonkers. SW
  4. I am still convinced is something to do with the primer bulb myself. Back in the day, I had a RAD Paramotor lol yes I know.... But it did not have a primer bulb so I fitted on and the exact same problems happened. I took it back off and the problems went away. My guess is that it was acting as a very slight restrictor or needed a certain tiny amount of pressure before fuel would flow through it. I honestly don't know. I just know it worked then and the symptoms were identical It's not something I have heard about for about 15 years, but as soon as it popped into my head I convinced myself. SW
  5. Just for clarity. Carb Ice is more likely to happen in the summer months when the warm air contains more moisture. The cold does not directly effect carb icing. Cold air is dryer than warm air (think Freeze Dried) I am starting to wonder if the primer bulb may play a part in it. SW
  6. You will find them accurate. PG is considerably more dangerous that PPG. This is a fact which can be acquired by looking through the insurance claims. The reasons are 'mainly' these: 1. Thermic weather 'required' 2. Flying Close the ground (in above conditions) 3. No height control (lack the ability to gain height on demand and the lack of ability to control height during cross country flights on demand) 4. High wind speeds at point of take off (I have personally witnessed this at a local hill where a PG pilot was sent back over the hill into Rotor (Via the roof of a posh car) followed by an Air ambulance. (Around 20 other people were gale hanging on speed bars about 50ft off the ground) 5. Every landing is what we would consider a 'forced landing' (we can go around at the last moment, and better prepare our approach and so on... I could go on and on... the bottom line is what is seen to be the situation by the insurance underwriters and they are now well more aware of this than they were 5 years ago when we were seen a PG and the same stats used. SW
  7. We can help with that but not in the South 'east' Give me a call if you like number below. SW
