    Hi Alan,

    You could well achieve a higher response to this question if you also post it in the section of this forum pertaining to your engine (see forum headings). Is it a Rotax 582?.

    Precision Propeller

    Joe, you haven't said what the problem is with your existing prop....if it's a damage problem, is it not easy enough to get it repaired?

    Hi Joe,

    The Precision props were made in the USA and are no longer in business, but the Shadow Flight Centre at Old Sarum has some blades and possibly even a hub in stock. Another source may be...

    Shadow Brake Shoes

    Didn't realise the Honda shoes would be that cheap....usually m/c spares cost an arm and a leg. The beauty of re-lining though is that you can specify the efficiency/wear rate of the linings and get...

    Permit Inspection

    Shadow Brake Shoes

    Well researched Terry, but you could have made your life easier and paid less by getting the existing shoes re-lined - and with a more effective brake compound at that!

    One Man Rigging from Lynton Trailer

    Okay, let's assume you've removed the wings and tail pieces and stashed them safely on the trailer walls....now you've just got to drag the fuselage into place.
