    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.

    OK, nobody wanted it rolled - don't blame really with tube postage costs. Now available folded into 'small parcel' size, so postage now 3.45. Now at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123675974815

    Also available: chart, same year, showing Olympic Restricted Airspace.

    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.
