We need to organise T-shirts and tattoos!

Bumper stickers - and wing stickers, too!

Should be good in peak hour traffic - and you can fit LOTS of planes inside!

Mine in orange please!

The right hand drive selection is pretty slim David. This one has the typically benign name of "Merryweather Pump Appliance". Kind of strips the macho out of the whole business.

Seeing the last photo gave me an idea.

On the top of the truck ("Merryweather Pump Appliance") there seems to be a white latter. But I was thinking more of a launching ramp.

So here's the idea. Set it up with high water pressure hook and release.

Attach the TS II or the EZ to launch ramp and....

What do you think zero to 200 in .0002 seconds.

Kind of reminds me of ZoomZoom's EZ launch off grass video about a year ago. Do you all remember that. It might be worth it to search for his video. We never did figure how he did it.

The ZoomZoom "Roll Off Grass" video is on my web site:

He never did give away his secret power train! Never be forgiven, either! What ever happened to share and share alike??

Flew my TSII for the 1st time on Sunday since upgrading my motors and batteries.

Currently using 2 x 480BB Motors http://www.overlander.co.uk/detail.a...oryid=66&ID=15 and some 3S 5200mah Lipo's I bought from Ebay, using Graupner 5.5x4.3 CAM Speed Props.

Performance was unbelievable!!! Took off at full throttle like a .40 powered funfly. Level flight at less than half throttle was faster than my pal (who uses the same motors on 8 cell nicad) at full throttle. Large 200ft daimeter loops were possible from level flight at just over half throttle. Due to no more need to fly at full throttle all the time, I clocked a 5 minute flight, and then a 15 minute flight from the same pack, and when re-charged found only 2600mah had been used!!!

This is one hell of an upgrade , I would recommend it to anyone for a minimum outlay. Piccies and hopefully a vid to follow!!

Not as of yet no. I don't have a wattmeter, but someone in the club is supposed to be bringing one down to the field. My Lipo's are rated for 52amps tho, so I wouldn't imagine I am too near their limit's, especially as I never fly it at more than 1/2 throttle even when launching.
