  2. I put a mount on an old shin pad velcroed over my boiler suit, it's out of the way and you don't get the constant looking around as you check the canopy etc, but easy enough to move your leg around a bit to get different angles.
  3. Hi any more thoughts on this machine?
  4. He's always been very quick to get me parts, not that I've needed many, only a couple of exhaust mounts and a carb kit.
  5. Is that their answer to the air conception? If it is as light it will be my next one....... well one day!

  7. Last night at the paragliding club meeting it suddenly struck me that of the 20 or so members there 3 had had serious accidents involving hospitalisation while paragliding in the last 3 years which is a pretty high rate. These weren't pilots pushing the envelope, just competent pilots, so as an 'ordinary' PPG am I less likely to have an accident than the equivalent PG?
  8. How about an incident\accident reporting section, with an ability for anonymity for the really embarrassing cock ups!!!
  9. And me, I imagine the insurance will be pretty step, how are you taking the motor?
  10. You can come down to my field 3 miles N of Taunton if you like, 20ac field, stubble until march next year.
  11. i put the ear defenders on, the bolt is well within the depth of padding inside, I was more concerned with the ease with which the whole thing came off, I only lifted it to take the helmet off, the captive nut only appears to be held in by the depth of the coating on the helmet.
  12. After shelling out £110 on a helmet I am less than impressed with the build quality,and how easily this ripped out. I think I will use my old full face m/bike helmet. Close up of where the peltor ear defender was attached, there is not much holding the nut in
  13. They may be very pretty but they make it a nightmare to harvest and if I found someone doing it into fields they would have my size 10 boot embedded where the sun doesn't shine!
  14. DESCRIPTION Parajet/APCO zip on reserve container left hand side as new selling as it is too small for an apco mayday 20. £40
  15. I thought the army buying filter was what sort of job could the brigadier get in retirement if he awarded the contract, rather than being fit for purpose!!
  16. You need a strobe, your Revo is almost invisible against the clouds, except from the front.
  17. After having to carry the motor are you going to put some wheels on?
  18. Heli Handling Instructor no less, but only because I was told to do it!!!!!! But got to set out a desert box and call in a chinook,
  19. I've got a question, the following are on a 1:250k air map, what do they mean? CARDIFF CTA "D" SFC-FL105 LARS 119.150 CARDIFF CTA "D" 3000'-FL105 A red/brown solid line area with diagonal hatching and R153.2.0 written inside
  20. Typical MOD buying crap! To be fair it is meant to be used at night, I did get a Chinook to land in the right place using the IR filter on it.
