  1. Yes, me too. I put it in the back seat supported on a thin board (so as not to leave unsightly indentations on the seat),and put the seat belt around the whole lot and an additional strap around the motor and head restraint. The wing and all the other bits and pieces fit in the boot/trunk and spare seats. And it's all kept warm and dry. Sorted!.
  2. Hiya. I use the off road version in the top photo, and I haven't blown up yet. And although it's an initial big hit , it works out cheaper (quite a bit cheaper) if you buy a 4L size. Nige
  3. https://youtu.be/VnRweBYvprw Hi Rich. I watched this vlog the other day and perhaps it's a solution to your throttle cable concern? Cheers Nige
  4. I was only joking Rich! but well done and what a great video!. I'm not sure I would be happy about landing on what looks like a tidal estuary!, but it made great viewing. Nice. Thanks for that.
  5. Great!.. no rush, tomorrow will be fine πŸ˜‚πŸ‘
  6. Wow what a nice day out!. pity the video didn't upload though as I would like to see that.
  7. Hello JC, Hello Chris.It also happened today with one of the Pilots at Membury, who was also on a new Atom 80.He had just got off the ground, perhaps 10 ft and full throttle when the engine power suddenly dropped and he made a forced landing. This happed 3 times in the space of 20 mins.I really hope this is not indicative with the Atom as I too own one which has just about 5 hours on it.πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ
  8. Yes I managed to get a couple of short flights today, perhaps around an hour in total.And had to land because it was pretty cold up there...Yep, I really ought to wear some clothes.🧐
  9. Just a tad higher Rich and it would have been a pretty good foot drag! πŸ˜‚πŸ‘
  10. Jay. If that weekend turns out to be torrential rain and a howling gale ....you can have my place . πŸ‘. You're welcome.πŸ˜€
  11. Me as well.... got 2 half hour flights today bringing my total up to 8!!.. πŸ˜‚ Very low cloud on my 1st flight, so pretty murky , but as soon as I landed the flippin sun came out with lovely blue sky.🀨 So anyway I scoffed some sandwiches and tea and went back up again.Awesome. What a great sport this is!
  12. I live in London and, a couple of weeks ago , I made contact with the nearest council park with a big open space.I wanted somewhere to practice kiting my wing and sought permission to do this. They had never had such a request before and wanted to meet to see what it was all about. I met with the head of the parks and we walked through it whilst I explained what I wanted to do and looked at various areas. However, as we walked I was struck by just how many dogs there were, and most of them were off their leads, racing around, barking excitedly and chasing other dogs.I could see straight away what a potential disaster that could be with one damaging my wing or just getting in the way. (I didn't even consider the dog mess!) So I talked myself out of that location and have now accepted that I will still need to drive for an hour to try and find a quiet open space... πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
  13. Thanks. I enjoyed watching that. I can't wait to get enough experience to 'leave the nest' to do that sort of thing and this weather isn't helping either.πŸ˜–
