Re: COVID Vaccine Trial

Covid-19 was first discovered in Spain 20th. March 2019, it was not known as Covid-19 then, there is also evidence it was in Paris mid-December 2019. As I keep saying on various blogs COVID-19 was FIRST REPORTED from Wuhan in Jan 2020, this does NOT mean it originated there. Much as Mr. D.Trump want...

Re: Fire extinguishers

I see this extinguisher has no control so once activated it will continue to discharge an Oxygen robbing chemical. This may be OK in a ground situation where you can distance yourself from a fire, however within the cockpit you cannot and a conventional aircraft extinguisher with the proper mount al...

The Transponder aerial is now external mounted on the Stbd Servo inspection plate. I would like to re-instigate the internal aerial and need a wa...

Re: Gear Up Problems

Also had a problem with the transistor. Replaced and all well - now keep a spare as they cost next to nothing. I always make sure when doing a ground test on jacks the battery is connected to a charger. It means the Bus voltage is normal in flight voltage and ensures the correct voltage for the tran...

The latter I built in the firm belief that it was a quick way of building something resembling a Falco. T...
