    Now you know as well as I do Mick, more weight would mean a slower aircraft, unless you also gave it more power. ;-)

    Where are you based Terry? I am at Newton Peveril in Dorset with G-MTHT, a CD, although originally a BD.

    I am all in favour. It can only be good for the BMAA. They will attract new and younger people into microlighting since pilots always tend to trade up to more expensive and more capable machines as...

    Thank you for that Wally. That is where I saw the info, on the EarthX website. I don't remember them talking about the Keywest Regulator, so that is good to know. I might go for a lithium battery...

    I was going to put a Lithium battery on my Shadow Kevin but then I came across some advice, on I think the California Power Systems website. It said that because a 503 only has 2 poles in the...

    I believe there are a few new things to see Joan. Take a look at the aircraft attending on the SSDR page of the BMAA website.

    8.33kHz spacing was chosen because it is exactly divisible into 25kHz. Any existing 25kHz spaced frequency is therefore also a valid 8.33kHz frequency. There is no reason for any existing frequency...

    Nuts in or out.

    Joe, the easiest way is to face the nuts outwards. This way you can fit a torque wrench directly onto the nut to get a true torque reading. If you apply the torque wrench to the bolt then as well as...

    Nosewheel Leg, Bolts and bungee

    Yes the ally tube is 6082 T6 which is high strength but not as ductile as lower strength alloys.

    Nosewheel Leg, Bolts and bungee

    I think that the photo shows conclusively that the wire strop, that acts as the suspension stop, put an enormous shock force on the tube. I think this then leads to the failure of the tube. Try to...

    Nosewheel Leg, Bolts and bungee

    That's very unusual Graham, for the tube to bend with so little bend in the bolt. Is it possible that your bungee was too slack. That would lead to a shock load as the wire strop bottomed out. You...

    Electric power

    Is that is a dc motor with brushes? Probably quite a low power to weight ratio and efficiency compared with a brushless motor. On the plus side, easier to control and cheaper.

    Yes John, the forecast for Wingland mislead me too. I consequently missed it.

    See you at Enstone. I am looking forward to see all the experimentation, and especially what you have been up to.
