Hi All

Asking questions to gain a bit of knowledge!! Bought a secondhand wot trainer, it has a TT.42 GP engine, it came with half a bottle of ''Model Technics Quickfire 16'' is that a good or bad fuel? or if not could anyone recommend a ''better'' fuel. Many thanks, appreciate your time/advice.

Hi All

Just bought a secondhand Wot Trainer!. Just giving it a once over, it takes a thunder tiger R2 glow plug, a bit pricey, £9.99 per plug!! Are they worth the nearly double money than say an OS plug which are half the cost, I know you get what you pay for, but I am new!! Also there was no nitro with the plane, any recommendations on % nitro I should use. As always thanks for your time and advice.

Same old story, learned to fly at elstree, herts. Went solo doing x country, along came the mortgage and kids. Friend at Elstree went over to the states and got his commercial, then he found love!! We used to go over to Florida and do our flying over there. I used to work for BA, used to do their flight plans so got over there for nothing, jump seat all the way, the arrival route into orlando international was brilliant. Microlight course, gliding course at Dunstable, just dream about it all now!!!

Hi Dave

Flown (thats a laugh!!) the old 'Ready 2'. Got a TT trainer at the moment. The Chris Foss is a good idea, will look into that, just want to get into the 'building' of an aircraft. Got a good friend who builds mainly 'warbirds' but he lives 2 hours away, he said he would help but lives too far away.

Tks for help/advice
