Re: VW Ali engine barrels with iron liners

There are aluminium Nikosil coated barrels that could be used. Great plains used to sell them, but don't anymore? They save about 10lbs in weight IIRC

Re: IMC/Night trial

Methinks someone has got a shiny new RV and wants to get it IMC rated? :D

Nikasil VW barrels?

Anyone know if they are ok for LAA aircraft use?

I know they are fitted to Aerovee and others, but what about retro fitting on non "manufactured" aero conversions? I've just noticed a source on Ebay for 1835 size ones and they represent a 10 lb weight saving and better cooling?

VP1 airframe for £100

I need some space in my workshop for my new project so need to sell the VP1 I had meant to restore.

Wings, rudder and tailplane all good but the fuselage would need a new top and bottom skin. It has an unbent undercarriage, fibreglass cowlings and tank but no engine.

Re: A65 for sale at Show.

Hi Graham,

Did he buy it? If not our Cub group might very well be interested.

Re: Rally 2013

I enjoyed myself too. Flew in Friday in an L4 Cub and camped.

Seem to be much fewer pictures on the web this year? Struggling to find any in fact!

Anyone know what's happening with the Slingsby T61? There was some lobbying to get them on a permit but I haven't heard anything for a while. I have a Falke which will most likely have to stay EASA, but perhaps if the T61 is accepted then the Falke may follow at a later date?

Lots about this on other forums. I thought it was great and well worth watching. I saw nothing that alarmed me too much (other than smoking in the hangar). It came across as gung-ho in places but it made good telly! If they'd concentrated on the more modern microlights and serious pilots it would pr...

Hi Rich,

Still looking? I know of one I used to own that is probably for sale. The widow of a friend still has it but I don't want to ask unless your friend is still interested.

Nothing to stop you, but it won't give a very good indication of wind speed. Actually, unless it's free to rotate properly, it won't even give a very great indication of direction either.

It has a 1300 engine ... did it fly with that? FRED's usually need 1600 at the very least, most have 1834's.
