    A pair of leather flying gloves - bought originally from Pooleys for 30.
    Nominally size 8 but closer to 8 (11 cm across the knuckle).
    Unlined with soft interior. Velcro wrist strap.
    Hardly used because too big for me.
    Looking for 20 but will consider sensible offer.

    And now! [drum roll] Taildragger training manuals; three left (...correction, two left). Full details of the problems you can encounter operating taildraggers, why they occur and what to do about it. Not only that, but for instructors there's advice on how to teach the magic.

    OK guys 'n gals - don't laugh (OK giggle if you must)

    I've got a faulty Zaon MRX if anybody's interested. It did work well for a while, then it worked sometimes but began switching itself off mid-flight, then stopped working completely. Yes, I did try replacing the batteries.

    Simple: it's scheduled for the local electronic recycling unless someone fancies it. Cost of postage, that's all.

    Oh, and bump on the the leather gloves. They're still available.

    Oh I'm on a roll here

    Lynx Micro G2 Headset refurbished with:
    - New coiled lead
    - new gel earseals
    - new microphone foam muff

    This headset was used regularly until two or three years ago when it was refurbished by a Lynx distributer (me) using Lynx materials. The battery has been regularly topped up and checked since. I checked it again today with another Lynx headset and sound strength and quality remains as good as you'd expect from Lynx gear.

    The only faults I can find are general light scuffing on the earpiece shells and a slight split in the outer insulation to the wire for one earpiece.

    I'm looking for 180 for it.
