We survived :)

Found on the cliffs...

Found on the Minster Cliffs - Perhaps a club member who braved the elements... Can’t be Paul as he was making his plane... Beware of the wind chill - it’s a killer for your little pinky!

Help, chaps. I have acquired an almost brand new OS 46FX-H. Having dismantled it to replace bearings and seals, etc. I removed the carb only to find that the threads had been stripped. Question 1, where can I get a replacement 40C carb body? I've had a look on the internet and they are as rare as hen's teeth. Question 2. Do any of you good people have one which I can purchase? Help!

Just arrived this afternoon as Paul was leaving but he kindly came back and video'd a couple of my new toys. The first one is a Schloiderding DLG,  a 1.2m all wood kit I built (rudder & elevator) and the second one is a Hawk, a 1.0m all carbon DLG (ailerons, flaps, rudder & elevator). Still to perfect launching!

Finally EFXTRA flies :)
