    Cheers mate, so far so good, the little Black Devil seems to be a sweet little engine and the takeoff and climb performance is certainly better. I did a plug chop at the conclusion of the first flight and the plug was a lovely coffee colour so from here it's careful fuel mixing and thorough checking after each flight until confidence builds. It certainly is nice to be back in the air. With summer coming on down here it will be nice to spend some long early mornings in the air, waiting for the first thermals to start up. Life is too short!

    Well 18 months after the Bailey engine failure I couldn't be happier with my CorsAir replacement engine. Take off roll is halved, climb rate is noticeably better and I have now mastered the starting and maintenance procedures for a two stroke. I had some experience with two-stroke motorcycles as a kid so they don't baffle me too much. Clean, fresh fuel, careful attention to filtration and reed condition, by-the-run in and setup and Robert would appear to be your father's brother. The summer of bushfires has slowed down the flying rate and now we have floods, but that's Oz for you.
