Re: New Zenoah 38cc

One point- 19x10 props (the ideal size) can vary quite a lot. Make sure you use a decent make, Xoar, Menz etc. I have some 19x10 ones that have no pull at all.

Re: Flying

Its perfectly sensible, if you walk past someone on your daily walk, you stay two metres away. Stay at least that on the field and its safe enough. Remember, outside is far less dangerous than inside! Shopping is still the riskiest thing.

Hitec Aurora 9x

I had not realised Hitec have stopped making transmitters- so I have 10 receivers and only one Tx, if it goes wrong I'm stuffed. I can find Aurora 9s, but if anyone has a 9x for sale I would be interested.

Yes, absolutely Alan. Team Renegade, and the Freestyle guys, some of the nicest people I know, are putting their expertise in to 3d printing full face shields for hospitals. Please please help out, They are funding it all themselves but need more.
