    I think you mean pressure group, vocal and not afraid to use their size nines.

    The best we can offer our members is is the orphaned process.

    When I read through it seemed like a fair few were BMAA/LAA initiatives.

    I know nothing about Rans S6s or Sherwood Rangers.

    Skyrangers can have Dacron or X-Lam skins. The latter last longer. A lot of older Skyrangers have been re-skinned with X-Lam.

    Bill Brooks has done quite a bit of long distance stuff on the HypeR, and with a 30 mph headwind it's worth his while flying flat out at about 90-something mph.

    If you look at total cost of ownership, then somewhere between 600 and 1,000 hours, depending on crank life, the 582 will become more costly to own.

    Because the cost of an 8.33kHz frequency is 1/3 the cost of the same coverage on 25kHz, not unreasonable as 3 x 8.33kHz take the same bandwidth as one 25kHz and therefore the costs are proportionate.
