In Topic: Need help with the basics in the UK

Well at last i managed to meet up with the guys on the Dunstable Downs today, a massive thanks to Bill for looking after me and showing me the errors of my ways, for me it was great to be shown the correct way and i now have the confidence to setup on my own and get on with flying and enjoying the whole experience.

 

Any new flyers reading this i would recommend that you meet up with someone with experience as this will save you time and money (broken rods in my case) in the long-term.

 

So thanks again Bill and also thanks to Mark, Graham and Andy for your time today.

 

Looking forward to seeing you all at the end of July for the festival and hopefully you will see an improvement in my flying.

 

Thanks

Hi all, just checked again and its the centre rod and one of the end rods that have snapped confusing myself now.

 

Thanks

Hi all, thanks for all the input, just to clarify it is the 2 leading edge end rods, center one is ok but both ends snapped about half way up (not good piloting i think) it is the thicker leading edge with Ultra Light marked in gold which i think is the 3 wrap.

 

So looks like it could be reasonably expensive i think!!!

Hi Bill, thanks for the reply and i will certainly join you folks very soon, on my last outing i broke both tips to the leading edge so i am looking to order replacements, where is the best place to order in the UK?

 

Thanks
