    Hi Roger,
    I had a dodgy ignition module on a 912ULS last year which caused annoyance and intermittently unreliable starting for a while. The diagnostic technique I was advised to use by Kevin...

    I'm not tempted. Firstly, it doesn't seem very likely to be compass compatible as it's magnetically mounted. Secondly, technological items which cost less than a tenner are usually worth zero.

    Good luck Dave! Might see you on Friday. Despite being as nervous as hell, I enjoyed my test with Barry. Just treat it like another lesson, he will.

    Are you sure it's an electrolytic? I can't make out all the details but it looks like a metallised paper one to me. Bosch stopped making them in the 90s IIRC, so no data is available online to check.

    That set looks pretty ancient, any of the components could have failed at that sort of age. Why do you think it is the big capacitor?

    How big are you, Dave? I've sat in one (I'm 6 foot) and felt like a sardine. Is there anyone local to give you a ride in one?

    My experience is that there aren't many bargains in life. If it's...

    John, a bit of advice you didn't ask for. Don't let it go stale. Fly as much as you can in the next few months (once the licence has arrived). It will help consolidate what you've learned. Hope...

    Roger, sorry to be a doubter. The croc clips scare me a bit on a refuelling rig. Sparks when you connect to the battery might be unwelcome.

    Hi Lee,
    I've yet to fly a plane which handles as nicely as a Eurostar, C42 included. Price, however, is high. If I were in the market for a 3 axis micro, a Skyranger Nynja would be what I would...
