Any Devon fliers or visitors ?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Nice to be back in the air again. Breaking in a new motor so popped across to Exmoor and back (44 miles) last night. Lundy island looked lovely in Sunny waters. Bit slow with my thermalling wing @ 23 mph but quarter throttle and 3 litres / hour fuel use were pleasant and nothing melted !

Drop me a line if you want to meet up for a fly. Aiming to do more long distance this year.

Hello Simon

Good to hear from you. Yes it's great to be up aloft again. I went for a pull start Minari 180 which sits nicely in a Bulldog frame. Seems to run well. Do you consider it would be worth putting a venturi shroud on the engine. I mounted the bloody reserve right in the airflow. Might move that. Guess it'll run warm the first few hours
