  1. The above points notwithstanding regarding GPS accuracy the app `Flyskyhy` has an option for height above ground (as well as altitude of course), both options can be configured to be viewable on screen simultaneously. It appears quite accurate - when flying over the sea both altitude and height above ground displays show the same figure but as soon as i head inland the height above ground changes instantly. Flyskyhy is a great app.
  2. Yes, of course it`s black - Vitorrazi supply their engines with a rich (safe) factory carburetor setting to keep it cool and increase reliability at the expense of efficiency. You can keep it set as it is if fuel consumption is not a priority and just enjoy hassle-free flying or tweak the mixture to gain more flying time per litre if you have some experience in tuning carburetors and are confident that you are not going to do any damage by running too lean. A symptom of over-rich idle mixtures on the Moster though can be excessive vibration at idle ("four stroking") which can be a co
  3. Nice work. Where did the #2 cylinder come from?
  4. How come you guys have taken a `sidestep` from your previous wings to a Solo? Not knocking the Dudek, but it`s a very `mild` option?
  5. I notice that the belt is branded `Optibelt` - rather than the Gates that they used to fit. Anyone with a newish Moster that can provide noise and longevity feedback? I once tried a belt other than Gates (sourced from a reputable bearing supplier) and it was totally and comprehensively crap - very noisy and lasted only a few hours before it started falling to bits.. Try a Gates if fiddling about with alignment doesn`t work and the noise still bothers you.
  6. Looks like an interesting area to fly. Coastal flying for the win.
  7. It`s definately not unknown, at least in the motorcycle community, to hear of `dead on arrival` plugs. Wasn`t an NGK by any chance was it - they`re the worst offenders.....
  8. Wow, 30 degrees at 2000`! I must admit, i bottled out of flying once or twice during that mini heatwave we had a few weeks ago, i just didn`t fancy setting up in 30 degree heat in the middle of a field..
  9. I've never experienced the extended or fast run-out, I always seem to get enough lift to take off with a moderate throttle at easy jogging speeds. Might be because I'm 68kg and have 70kg + thrust.....
  10. The funny thing is when you are preparing for launch at the field it may be in mid summer with 26 degree-plus heat bearing down on you in the middle of a heat-sink of a field, but you just know that you have to don that extra fleece under your flight suit `cos after 2/3 hours + `up there` you`re gonna` be glad you did. Just suiting up, getting the motor on your back and started, and the walk to the wing to clip in can have you sweating. It certainly concentrates the mind for a successful first launch attempt because the effort of setting up again doesn`t bear thinking about. In the
  11. I get 3.5l/hr on my Moster 185 and with a 15 litre tank can go over 4 hours.
  12. Yep, that`s excellent alright, i don`t think many 2T`s would be able to get near that! Must be a great feeling flying with a motor that sips fuel so sparingly, cheap too!
  13. What would you call excellent 2T efficiency, Mark?
  14. I know exactly what you mean, if the mix is lean the engine exhaust note sounds `faint` and the pulses regular, the idle speed will be smooth but on the high side, if the mix is rich it`ll be a `fuller` exhaust note and the `pops` will be random (4 stroking). The engine may shake more,too. When i first got my Moster the factory settings were so rich and the engine shake so much it used to give me double vision with the motor on my back at idle. Another tuning trick is to snap the throttle open from idle - if it bogs it`ll be lean, and this can happen if both the low or high screw is
  15. What engine is this on Andy, and is one turn out on both the factory spec? One turn out on the low screw seems a lot, and one turn on the high screw (comparing to the settings on my Moster) would be on the lean side.
