  1. It'll soon be so much better for flying too, once the people have been eliminated.. at least I assume that's the current gov plan..
  2. Updated menu fields to reflect current settings as requested. https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/10bbeff2-2ab0-4e18-8bb2-b6a3fd808873
  3. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00TH20F20/ref=psdcmw_1939465031_t2_B00B9C170U Should work fine
  4. I was there about 3 years ago, but weather wasn't flyable so ended up having to make do with a cycle around it. Very jealous. Stu
  5. my second ever flight I did the same. broke my first prop - this was in South Africa in 2005 - luckily we had a spare as there were no other spares in south africa at the time. The standing up straight (dick forward, head back - totally opposite of a paraglider takeoff) and keep running even when airborne trick worked for me. Get into the habit of not even trying to sit down till yer 200 feet up or so. After lots of flights this can change, but until then think about your legs as your undercarriage - and it doesn't get retracted till your pretty high. I had a similar instinct I really had
  6. yeh starts when detects ascent more than 20m. doesn't stop till you stop (or close app) recorded track though is from time you start recording (or start app if using autorecord) till time you stop recording (or close app). Idea being time on ground faffing isn't timed, so you know how much time you've actually flew/run the engine. stu
  7. well, assuming its a 2 stroke everything from the carb down is soaked in petrol+oil. and the oil stops it evaporating much. So most of smell left is probably coming from carb out through air intake so you could try covering that. same with exhaust really. But yer best bet imho would be to get a big 'garden waste' sack - like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/PATIO-PLUS-Rubbish-Waterproof-BLGWB500-2GR/dp/B088M3MFVZ/ref=sr_1_15?dchild=1&keywords=garden+sack+200&qid=1600887774&sr=8-15 just stick it in that and seal the top with a few bungies. job done. stu
  8. What’s New 22/09/2020 New Features: Altitude fixed - it will now display the same altitude as the altitude widget on your phone. This will use barometer and GPS is available, and if you have adjusted it, it will display this adjusted value. Zero Altitude is now persistent. If you prefer to always start a flight with take off field at 0, set this and every time you start the app it will zero the altitude. Units have been separated into Distance and Vertical. So you can independently set mph or km/h, feet or meters. Just go into Garmin Connect, apps, and stufly and 'updat
  9. too fancy for me - I just use google maps - 'measure distance'. has the benefit it even works with airspace provided you use a link with the airspace overlays. stu
  10. the osmo pocket is pretty bad for vibrations - see folk trying to use it for motorcycling. It not really much good as an action camera/gimbal because of that tbh. I've got osmo pocket, osmo mobile, probably 10+ gimbals, etc ...last I counted summit like 15 cameras that shoot in 4k... whether quantity makes me an expert is debatable - someone who's profession is photpgraphy/video like @Steve would probably be a better font of knowledge, but I'm a knowledgeable amateur at least. if yer talking photos - all you need is a standard pocket camera - set it to sport mode so it uses a fast sh
  11. liability is the big one - it just takes landing on a field/car/house or an awkward person with an expensive lawyer and you could be talking 10s of thousands. And having plummeted onto my face in babadag, smashing my nose flat and fracturing my neck - then being taken to the public hospital (like something out of MASH) before playing the 'I have insurance' card - and going to the proper modern one... I'd personally never fly abroad without personal injury insurance. each to their own risk though - just go in eyes open. Back in 2005 I went snowboarding in Zermatt - totally forgot
  12. ah that's good 7300 - exactly same as i get. with air conception saying 7700 i kept thinking i was down on power, but sounds like I'm same as you get. yeh - no wind days - awesome once airborne - an utter sh1te to get airborne. when I had my top80 i remember once having to run maybe 150m - then climbing crazy slow. When you've so little power to start with, all it takes is a wee bit off on the carb or whatever and it's back to rad days. I've never measures pop off pressure - what amazon purchases do i need to make ? stu
  13. hi. yup. try it with a running app or summit. sync with phone and yer track will appear. if you want it in GPX format, just logon to garmin connect website on yer PC and you have the option there to download the raw GPX trace if you want it for plotting on some other app or google earth or whatever. Stufly creates tracks just like any other app. there's 3 different things: =- watch faces: kinda self explanitory. - fields - there are bits of data that you can then use in any regular garmin app to configure on a custom screen. e.g. say i made a field which was 'double
