In Birr airfield, less wings (must have been practicing wing removal as well)
not wishing to ruin your theory j3cub, however more hanger talk ..
(not always true) a white taildragger disappeared yesterday.. not a millon miles away ..could be something in it. Going to steer clear of it for fear.
Back to whats important..MICROLIGHT MICROLIGHT MICROLIGHT, seems its not important what happens MICROLIGHTS, but how you spell it. Thank God they didn't have to spell it wrong in the papers.
DonalMW i stand corrected : oops:again MRCROW.

Not Filmed at Birr !!
I noted the makers of the chip can't spell either. Feel less stupid now!
Having viewed both clips i was amazed what these machines are able to do.
Would the IAA allow you do aeros or racing in microlites/lights in ireland?Looks like mad craic. If you could do aeros on 12 liters an hour ever poor aero pilot in Ireland would have their avgas guzzling planes for sale in
flying in Ireland.
(maybe there is some truth in the hanger talk about the wings not been attached to the one in BIRRmuda. Wouldn't have much time for RT while at that craic either) w.
If you are looking for aerobatic capabilities on 12 Lt/hr with a reasonable budget then check out the Rans S10 with Rotax 582 or 912 power
The second clip from lorax is excellent and real, looks loke great fun, but I would'nt allow anyone to do it with my aeroplane.
PILOTS are just PLANE people with a special AIR about them
Poor Westlite must be broken hearted. First you tell westlite a little porkey, then someone tells him he can't spell, then his he told he can do aeros in an xair. Aeros for 12 euro an hour for Aerobatics is too good to be true. An extra 300 would cost around 200 euro per hour on fuel, and I believe the red Sukohi owned by Bruton, would cost the gross national product of a small Country. The nice people in the IAA would not be sponsering you in a xair.
It would appear that Lorax's first link is a little bit of a fairytale. Perhaps the dead stick landing Lorax saw was also a RC model (that was also lost in the Birrmuda triangle as j3cub has made us aware of.)
Gas man j3cub - imagine this ones going to stick - forever.
Westlite you would be best advised to do the lotto,or develop a sence of homour like Lorax.
Lorax you should spend your internet time looking for a new 582 for this invisible xair. COME CLEAN LORAX chain the DEVIL.
ps West"light" I saw your post on the maintenance fourm asking about the price per hour for maintenance . HA! HA ! The answers will surely
p you off... I hadn't the heart to answer it !
Poor Westlite - your going to need another lotto win. c s
As I mentioned the Rans S10 is a very capable aerobatic machine with a 582 or 912 and can manage up to +6/-3 g. Incidentally the 582 itself doesn't mind beign inverted (no oil system to worry about) but needs a fuel system that can cope with negative g.
Go to http://www.rans.com/s10spec.html for the spec sheet, and there happens to be one for sale at the minute on AFORS
http://www.afors.com/index.php?page=adview&adid=10113&imid=0 for £10.5k which is probably a little over priced for what for practical purposes a 1.5 seater tourer or single seat aerobatic aircraft. It's not by any means an easy aircraft to fly, or indeed a pleasant one due to neutral longitudinal static stability, but for full aerobatic capabilities on a budget its hard to beat.
