    GPS height estimations are much less reliable than horizontal position info because of the very tiny angular change with height, as 'viewed' from the low earth satellites.

    Noooooo Joan....
    Thruster pilots are lucky. They at least have a pod and screen (needed, admittedly, with a tractor prop). We podless Chaser pilots have 60mph and no protection. Two pairs of...

    Better the 'Biggles flies undone'...

    I agree with Joan. Microlighting is a superbly social sport - much more so than GA.

    Many thanks for the helpful responses Steve. I'm a little unclear on the tech.
    Is the core brain simply a Pi running some firmware developed by PAW people?

    Can you run it off its own battery and disconnect the power lead for an experiment to see if that improves things.

    I use Sainsbury's Super. In our area (Notts) it's still ethanol free, despite the E5 sticker on the pump. Oh, and 128.9p/litre :-)

    Bit of both Steve. We fly in a glider intense area, so we're keenly aware of how difficult they can be to spot. Lack of a FLARM is a serious shortcoming of all other systems - and I know that OGN-R...

    I like the idea of sound, and perhaps an indication of where to look, only. I occasionally fly with someone who has PAW, coupled with Sky Demon. I watch him spend as much time looking for a...

    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.
