    Red Top Batteries and heater options.

    As Paul says, only open it 30/40 deg. I've a pair of Timberland deck shoes that now have a melted furrow in the sole of one of them due to opening the heater flap fully, which in turn warmed up the rudder pedal and conducted through to my shoes.

    My wife says that I look like that most of the time......seriously, though, I was very surprised at how quickly the suit inflated :smilewinkgrin:

    The Crewsaver Breathable Dry Suit is quite comfortable to wear. I have worn it for a three hour flight from Dieppe back home to Whitehill Farm and it felt entirely OK. What I do though was to stuff a small piece of cloth in the neck seal which could be quickly taken out in a ditching. This improved the comfort considerably as you don't then have the rubber or neoprene neck seal in close contact with your neck.

    All the best Rick

    Red Top Batteries and heater options.

    Gents,

    would like to upgrade the battery in my Skyranger Swift, to a lightweight unit, which is cranking a 912UL. However, i am a little lost to what size and type to buy.

    Questions i have:

    1. What Type & Model is Best

    2. Will i have to change the conntections.

    3. Will i have to make the housing bigger where the battey is stowed

    4. Can the lightwieght units be left on a optimeter (trickle Charger)

    Look forward to your replies

    Regards
    GT

    Hi Gary
    There is a draft TIL No 117 that deals with the replacement of lead acid batteries with lithium. It's not on the BMAA web site but I could email you a copy if you're interested I used it to fit a tiny lithium battery when I built my Nynja last year. It has now done 50 hours and cranks over the 912s better than any larger lead acid battery.
