Parachute

I'm told that the rescue services won't attend at a light aircraft crash if they think there might be a balistic parachute fitted.(Health and safety in reverse there, these are supposed to save your life) Does anyone know the truth behind this and if you can get stickers saying "No Parachute Fitted" ?

Oratex

I have an Escapade covered in Oratex and occasionally need to do little repairs. I have a temperature controlled iron from my model aircraft days but note on the TLAC site a digital temperature controlled heat gun can be usefull.

Camlocs

Has anyone seen bushes for camloc 2600 fasteners? I have GRP cowls and it would be nice to have a little top hat bush where they go through to stop wear etc. Been on Google withouth success.

Easy Vfr4

I started using easy vfr 4 when Skydemon started charging. It looked ok but I found that Hibaldstow isn't shown as a parachute site and the extended runway lines of Humberside are missing too. So as they said in Hill Street Blues, lets be careful out there!
( Now bought Skydemon)

T+S slip plug (2)

I've decided to fit a 2 1/4 28 v turn and slip to my Escapade but need a 4 pin plug to make it all happen. Sadly the one I bought for the 12v 80mm one is 3 pin. Ho Hum. Does anyone have a link to a suitable source please?

New Club?

I'm thinking of starting a club to support the Reality Cub and Escapade. All online and to offer tech help, anecdotes and possibly help with importing parts as a group to save postage. (TLAC admit they have supply problems) Please PM me if interested.

Re: Escapade SLA

It looks as if the difference is solely in the axle diameter.

Re: Intercom wanted

My Icom can have names programmed into the display rather than having to have a list of frequencies on a pad. So I can dial up Donna Nook and it does the frequency for me. I can read it without my glasses whichat 64 does help

Re: Hornet's Nest?

People have designed and built completley new aircraft via the LAA but it does take a while. The LAA team do wonders within the regs but the danger of litigation looms high. To show you how bad it is a student pilot tried to sue his instructor when he cocked up a landing claiming he couldn't have be...

Re: Escapade

Thanks for that. Do you have contact details for the prototype one if it's LAA as I'm trying to transfer to a SLA and need the build standard
