    I did the seaplane course with Gerry a few years ago, but I'm not sure that he's still doing it. Last I heard he'd taken the floats off the X'Air and put it back on wheels.

    The performance of the...

    Turning trike floats, like those Krucker ones, into long range tanks would work OK. You wouldn't need to use all of the volume in the Kruckers to get the capacity Brian had in that massive back seat...

    Well spotted, Joan.

    I know the APT people pretty well and they do an outstanding job. Once you've witnessed a quadraplegic chap, with just a small amount of arm movement from his shoulders, plus...

    Mike,

    There are two mods I know of, apart from the Rotax brass ring, that are reputed to stop these senders breaking. The first is to fit a threaded adapter in line with the sender that has a...

    Andy,

    The problems with microlight ASi calibration are really all down at the 35 to 40kt end of the speed range, where it's very difficult to try and fly at an accurate speed and heading, anyway. ...

    Generally speaking, owners don't have to bother with ASI calibration, as it's done as part of approval. Microlights pose some interesting challenges when it comes to getting a reasonably accurate...

    Pics would be great, particularly if you can show what the ground plane, or aerial mount, looks like in a bit of detail.

    One other test you can do, would be to test just how far it will transmit...
