    I've landed on Burnham beach a few times in the late eighties, but the local council stopped this happening not long after. Weston definitely not possible in all my time flying in the area.

    Actually, we aren't, Roger. I'm not any more, and haven't been for a couple of years now. I gave up after a lifetime of flying. I flew solo even before I passed my car and motorcycle tests, both of...

    I'll have you know we also have plenty of conjugations over on this side of The Sleeve. The rumour that French pilots make the best lovers is just a load of tosh. ;-)

    You would think someone wanting to set up a "School for Perfection" would know how to spell hangar. Or are they looking for old clothes? ;-)

    I share a lot of Adrian's optimism over electric cars, and also solar generation. However, it probably won't happen as quickly as he hopes for many practical reasons.

    I have a set of solar panels...

    You are going to have to have a think about a rename of your aircraft type, Adrian. Shadow and solar power don't really go hand in hand. ;-)

    I remember meeting Mike Campbell Jones back in 83 / 84 when he was developing the Spectrum at Shobdon. He currently runs Paramania, which develops reflex wings for paramotors. So he is still around,...

    Sadly, I don't agree. They actually only hurt the real newbies who want to learn about microlighting who won't post questions as a result of their behaviour.

    My budget Raven had a foot brake. Or, rather, two. ;-)

    That is true, Bob, and a quick glance through the posts of recent members indicates there are definitely already a few more Peter's in the wings.

    Personally, I wish he would learn to moderate...

    To be fair, I quite like Peter as well, Wally, and he and I have shared many correspondences over the years.

    But if Keith isn't Peter I'd be mightily surprised.

    I'm confused now.

    I thought Keith was Peter.

    Is it possible that we have a new forumite from Peter's part of the world who is saying lots of nice things about Peter but who really isn't Peter?...

    I admit to a bit of bias, Adrian. It was the first piece of classical music my father bought me, and still remains one of my favourites to this day.

    Another lovely video, Adrian, but it is a shame you got the music wrong. ;-)

    Beautiful, Adrian.

    By the way, I was taught in my own mountain flying training to cross such ridges at 45 degrees.

    Most GA aircraft do not have an engine reduction system such as a gearbox or a belt and pulley system. So engine rpm equals prop rpm. Your average engine and hence prop rpm in your typical lycosarus...

    It was drummed in to me by my instructor, Bob, that the most common cause of breaking the nosewheel, and often the prop with it, was to push forward in a bounce in the Piper and Cessna types I...

    Hi Bob,

    I've never flown a Minimax, so please accept this comment with that in mind, and that I recognise generic advice does not always apply in specific aircraft. With that caveat in mind,...

    Good point, Martin. I used to own an old tractor which was started up only once every year or two, and it had an old battery that had gone completely flat. I charged the battery and then tried to...

    The same answer as above, but giving the formula so you can plug in the numbers for other calculations:

    The formula I try to remember is P = IV. Power = amps x volts.

    So, amps = power / volts....

    On a minor point of pedantry, Joan, there is something a little oxymoronic about that comment. ;-)
