Good Morning Joystickers,           www.joystickclub.co.uk

It was quite warm in the garage yesterday as Steve and I set about widening the trailer axle 2ins to  accommodate the wider wheels. We were amazed to find the "axle" was solid steel , it took a little time to cut through!  After lunch everything was welded back together successfully, with tube that Mike DIGGINS provided, and we now have a wider trailer which can carry 4 Pedal Planes.

If anyone would like to he...

Those who know Conrad Beale, excellent Rotax engineer, will have seen him doing slow rolls in his !

Hello Joystickers!     Joystickclub.co.uk

We've had a work-in on the Seneca, which is now at Peter Dobson's for initial electronics fit , but we need vertical props to hold two hatches open.. We thought aero foil shaped struts from old aircraft would be good, need to be about 6ft long. 

Anyone know any scrap struts lying around?
