    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?
    Are you saying that the detection of...

    Do you have any idea of the current draw Steve? Looking at the coverage map (https://pilotaware.com/ogn/) my home near Nottingham already has good coverage, but the airfield is not exactly in a...

    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...

    It would be a no-brainer, but I'm so disappointed that it is so expensive, and that the designers have chosen to keep the protocols private so interfacing with other systems is next to impossible.

    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...

    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...

    Non-isolated fuel level tell-tales, like your suggestion, will misread when the engine is drawing fuel. Also think about what happens in the event of an accident and you wind up inverted ;-)
