    I did post a series of photos of the antenna instalation in the files section of the Skyranger group but I can't seem to find them on the new Yahoo setup. However if you paste the following...

    Tinted Lexan

  7. Does anybody have a Kiev pitch gauge spare?

    Thanks Paul, a very generous offer after all this time, typical of Flylight's high standard of service. Now I have an excuse to fly in to Sywell.

  8. Does anybody have a Kiev pitch gauge spare?

    Thanks for the advice on the gauge Paul, I can see that working far better than trying to interpolate off the scale. I had half suspected that my gauge was for a pusher. I suppose that I should take...

  10. Does anybody have a Kiev pitch gauge spare?

    I suppose that it all comes down to personal choice realy, if your tachometer is accurate and you are only pulling 5000 rpm at WOT 70 mph then you are well within the max rpm static of 5000 for the...
  11. Does anybody have a Kiev pitch gauge spare?

    Hi Rick

    This is quite an old question so you are probably sorted by now, just in case. I didn't find the Kiev gauge to be much use for anything else than getting the pitch something like as a...

    Skyranger Data Plates

    Hi Ian

    I doubt that aluminium would be classed as "fire-proof" as it would melt in a fire. My understanding of the need for the fire-proof reg requirement is so that the aircraft wreckage can be...

    Chaser SSDR

    The main reason for the weighing was because it is used in competition and he didn't want to win only to be challenged on weight and then disqualified for not being a true SSDR.
