Hi Torchy,

It wasn't me you saw flying - but I've just come back to PPG (after a few years focusing on other airsports) and live between Salisbury / Southampton - so If you want to go flying at some point then let me know.   

I have been servicing my engine (Polini 190 Thor - on my Parajet Zeneth) and it runs but its not very smooth.  I think the carb just needs some adjusting.   so i want to get it looked at by a mechanic familiar with 2 stroke engines.   have you used anyone locally that you can recommend?   i've got the number of someone in Newbury but I'd rather not drive 1.5 hours.

thanks for any help.

Hi Oliver

Thanks for posting a reply. 😁 It would be great to go flying somewhere local. I'm still learning at the moment at membury with simon Westmore. 

Have you managed to find a field to fly from?

With regards to servicing I haven't found anyone local either. I think most engineers are used to working on lawnmowers and probably dont have facilities to tune a motor with a prop spinning 🤣 could be dirty carb, or old fuel? 

Hopefully the lockdown will be over soon and we can go play again. Keep in touch and if I hear of a field or mechanic I'll give you a shout.

Hi Mike,

Im good friends with my local farmer - so I just take off from behind my house.  I live at SP52JX - so get back in touch when you want to fly and have finished your training..   I might well just take it to a lawnmower repair place.  

Simon is supposed to be very good.
