  1. I use my Oudie as my main unit and then have my phone as a back up incase anything happens
  2. I went with a naviter Oudie 4, it’s an expensive outlay but once you have bought it the updates are free. There is a subscription service but it is not needed for normal function and manly for used for competition route planning. i weight it up as 5 years of runway hd would cover the outlay if buying it, it has more functionality can set up the screen to show which ever data you require and In your chosen location and size. The biggest selling point for me was having a standalone unit designed to do ONE job, I think we rely too much on our phones and if it fails,battery dies o
  3. There are many way of running injection on 2 stroke engines. The best System I have had a play with was on a husqavana motocross, it has a separate oil injector so no pre mixing oil and fuel (I always end up putting fuel in Gina’s car because I can’t remember if I put oil in or not) Depending on how far you want to get into it the benefits can be massive but on MX bikes the weight isn’t as big of a deal. with the correct sensors and management you will get much better fuel consumption and the ability to adjust fuel to match altitude. Although O2 sensor don’t like 2 stroke oil too muc
  4. So I trained with Simon and col at membury (PMC) and loved it! Flew for 1 year or so and then due to lack of wiling insurance company’s at the time I joined the BHPA via alternative entry. (There are wiling insurance companies now without bhpa) I have seen two different sides to the sport from PMC and BHPA, is one better than the other? In my opinion no. it all depends on what you want to do, PMC is very laid back teach you what you need to know and get you flying to a good standard and continue from there to Wherever you want to get to at a time scale that suits your needs and desir
  5. I know he feeling, I stopped riding mountain bikes and put 4 stone on what felt like over night
  6. Hi Ben, I am 120kg and have no issues with kit. Although I’m a large lad I am active and relatively fit considering, which is the most important part. You will spend day after day running around a field to start with so as long as you have the legs for it you will be fine
  7. I have found the opposite, I have 160 hours on my motor with Castrol 2T racing at 40:1 and it is as clean as they come. No build up, no signs of wear beyond normal even the underside of the piston was cleaner than expected. I have also taken had the jug off a 50 hour moster ran on motul 800 at 66:1 and the build up was horrible, no signs or wear but excessive deposits over the piston and and the “webbing” under the piston was only just visible. I do run 98 octane which could possibly have an effect. just my small 2 pence. I am an Audi trained technician and while I was there f
  8. You just need to have a play and work it out. They all have their own little quirks, I have a moster 185 plus and it is first pull 90% of the time if not then 2nd or 3rd pull. my technique for my engine that works is to do a half bulb prime with the carb button pressed and then once the motor is on my back pull the engine over slowly for 2 compression (no point priming it if you don’t get it up in the cyclinder) and give it a starting pull.
  9. Hi Rob, the Dunstable downs club also have an airfield they have gained permission for the paramotor members to fly from. I believe it’s holmbeck farm. I have spoken to a couple that fly from there who seem very friendly. It might be worth contacting the club for more info and hopefully find the guys to chat too. i am in Buckingham, I have a couple of sites over this way you are welcome to join me at once you are up flying but they aren’t particularly beginner friendly.
  10. until

    It was a great group reece and chin wag. I definitely cannot wait for the next one in Cornwall! looks like some amazing flights to be had from the site
  11. I don’t know anything about power to weight charts with regards to thrust but just wanted to step in slightly. I’m not trying to argue but the above is a little wrong. Im 120kg and have no issues with a moster 185cc, short take offs and good climb rate.
  12. I’m currently looking at ordering a new prop and I’m curious as to what the info of the prop means. Or is it just serial related? Some of it is self explanatory like 1,30 etc
  13. On the registration form there is an option for free flyers. That allow you to come, camp and fly from a different field to the entrants. If I understood it correctly
  14. Hi guys unfortunately I’m not going to make it this weekend, sorry for the last minute notice. So there is an open space if anyone is still looking
  15. Auto correct, I would have thought my phone has typed moster more than enough times by now
