    Was wrong. You were there! Now really sorry I didn't speak to you. The Minicab was parked right there next to you, but I still didn't see you.

    Was there on Sunday and saw the part dismantled Spectrum. I never thought to ask if there'd been a problem, just assumed someone had trailered it in as a part complete project. If you'd been...

    As with a lot of CAA legislation, it came about by accident. We had completely deregulated foot launch. A paraplegic pilot applied for and got an exemption for wheels. Other pilots shouted...

    Looks like a Rotax airfilter in the pictures. So presume a Rotax 447 with gearbox.
    Yes, it definitely is.

    I should add that I'm an inspector myself and I sometimes think that the annual inspection is a negative thing. Many owners fail to do even basic airworthiness checks on the basis that 'my inspector...

    Unfortunately, the press made a big issue of several fatalities in just a couple of months in 1982. It was a bad copy of a US ultralight that was launched in the UK just when two-seaters and, hence,...

    The oft quoted, 'microlights falling out of the sky and killing people', is misleading. Remove just one badly copied two-seater design (the Scorpion) from the statistics, and we were remarkably safe...

    There was probably more energy being transmitted from the co-ax feeder than that mobile phone antenna! This is what I was trying to convey earlier.

    At one time, you rode a motorcycle to work because you couldn't afford a car. Then you sold the bike and bought a car. In later life, you bought a bike just for the sheer exhilaration.

    A giveaway might be that grabbing the co-ax changes things. This only happens if there is a problem of 'termination'. Your co-ax feeder is acting as an antenna and it shouldn't be. As Randombloke...

    On the contrary bodyboy. It's easier now than ever to fly 'tiny, one-manned aircraft' and we have the BMAA and CAA to thank. A two-seater permit is just as easy to obtain as it was back in your...
