  1. Been there Rise 😎 but mine looked at his No2 & said "I new this would happen one Day" as he handed My UK licence back & explained you did not stop in the centre reservation on dual carriageway, think he could see a lot of paperwork PS I am always polite to policemen they can seriously impact your day
  2. Have not heard from him for a long time

    Scary bits

    Since we sold our 500 have not been very active But here are some scary bits found over the years
  4. Brian why don,t you have a word with Steve Sennit at RPX they might help with balance for some feedback steve@rpxtech.com A friendly Co always returns calls & does what it says it will we cannot fault them. Say Peter & Tony suggested you had a word We have had a very slow year due to other commitments & have not used the RPX enough to get a handle on it, hoping to ramp up next year
  5. Have an Eagle like it the helmet once the pads were set up is comfortable. the ear cups take a fair bit of adjusting to seal well without adjusting your head , jell seals were the first mod I did. Wish All machines had 1 standard connector Like the magnetic catch idea more info please? Fitted headsetsinc ANR kit to the Eagle not that taken with the mod, I use Pilot ANR head sets in another machine, friend modified a 3M Type 2 hearing protector head set with the electronics from a set of damaged Pilot ANR they are the quietest I have flown with. Have a Lightspeed Mach 3 with custom inserts not impressed with those either, the cups on standard head sets stop bone transfer Check the passive protection of the head set first then the added ANR, I also understand the ANR helps clarity rather than protection across the hearing range, I think there is a Swedish or Norwegian paper setting out the pros & cons, also read a report that fast jet protection ANR is tailored to individual aircraft types. https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=-8wOd2fQZ2IC&pg=PA967&lpg=PA967&dq=anr+headset+reports&source=bl&ots=8P69BGRuI-&sig=ACfU3U0PvUK9jNQ60PcuU8w8ulU9o6nXOg&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjc2KS2mbboAhWioVwKHYiuCk0Q6AEwD3oECAoQAQ#v=onepage&q=anr headset reports&f=false
  6. I have Lightspeed in ear with custom moulds had 2 sets made by different Co neither feel comfortable, tend to use Pilot ANR A friend had some moulds made by one of the Co I used & borrows the Lightspeeds, love them I think it is down to personal preference. The ones I use on Bike annoy me after 1\2 hour as well different mould Co again
  7. Never had one of these crack or spit bits out
  8. Fidley to post picks now most sites are drag & drop
  9. Never thought about looking inside was told just keep it in the green & look where you are going to put it, but I can see how you could get fixated about the numbers & when you look out it is a rush to get your last bit clean. The other thing is a real auto is not like practice the motor is gone no little bit of help at the bottom with the remaining motor RPM & as sure as hell you want to get collective down quick the RRPM drop seems to be a lot quicker when it all goes quite, How do I know (around 300ft in a 300c climbing out nothing bent), went & thanked the instructor after lessons learnt cant remember what I did it was so quick, WE always did Autos to the ground I know it is not the modern way but I found it easier than recovering to a hover
  10. As Bonzo said it should be a strait in auto or are you leaving the turn till you are low & having to flare in the turn,, bit like a down wind quick stop turning into wind.
