    D shackles

    Looks there’s only one UK distributor according to their website. Is that right? Where did you buy yours from please?

    D shackles

    I’m looking to upgrade the D shackles on my Bailey V4. I’ve been looking at bolted D shackles with safety pins for extra security. Has anyone done this? Any recommendations please? The current ones are 40mm long and 30mm wide. I also want to change the main carabiners too as it’s a second hand machine. Thanks
  4. Could be a silly question, but what do you wear under a flying suit? Is like overalls and just put on over your normal clothes?
  5. Just bought an Ozee Millennium thermal suit
  6. Any recommendations please for an all year round flying suit at a reasonable price? Thanks
  7. This is really helpful, thank you
  8. It’s all getting complicated I’m reluctant to cut the heat shrink as that’s a brand new battery from Bailey and cost a fortune! You think they would cover this stuff in the manual!
  9. Thanks Cas, I’ve got one somewhere from my old RC flying days . What’s PB charge option though? Also, any idea where I can get the connectors to make up the lead please?
  10. Could anybody recommend a battery charger for my Bailey v4 battery please. It would need to have the correct lead to connect the battery as the terminals are covered with tape. Thanks
  11. That’s Good to hear and extremely reassuring! I’m training with the BHPA so currently learning free flight and practicing landings before I’m ‘allowed’ an engine. Getting some great flights from some high points in Sussex though.....Mount Caburn, Devils Dyke etc. I can now strap on the old v4 without worrying about those little d-rings and pins
  12. I definitely doing that, thank you!
  13. Have you got a picture of that please? I think I know what you mean but it would be good see it done. Thanks
  14. No I’ll just be doing gentle flights with XC’s now and again. They are stainless steel but I wish they were a bit thicker!!
  15. There’s probably some amazing physics at work here, but as a newbie still in training and yet to fly my Bailey V4, I can’t help wondering if the two pins holding the hang bars in the chassis and the mallions holding the carabiners (also on the hang bars and therefore the same pins) will be strong enough to take me and the motor!! Everytime I go and look at it In the garage (which is often as I love it) the same thought crosses my mind
  16. I’m crap with electronics! I do have a multimeter but have never used it Always prepared to learn new skills though
  17. Could anyone tell me the correct battery I need for my Bailey v4 please? It looks like the previous owner has taped two together and I’m struggling to find what I need to fit in the gap. Thanks
  18. Interesting! Thank you for all your help. I’m learning a bit more everyday
  19. Ah, this is what should have accompanied my post above!
  20. Just bought a V4 and I have a few questions I’m hoping someone can help out with. I believe this is a fuel primer but should it be glued to the frame as mine is lose? What type of battery should be fitted for the electric start? Looks like I have 2 YTX4A-BS 12v 2.3Ah taped together. Is that right? They are flat so I want to get the correct replacement. Lastly, what are these for please?
  21. Whoops, a little emabarrasing! Told you I was new to all this. Thank you for your help, I'll pick up a 10mm key today
