I did a good job of wrecking the club trainer on Sunday! Horrible model, something called a "Primary 40" I'd never heard of it either! I lost it in the sun, my fault. I am in the process of "reducing it to produce!"

I ordered a replacement, a Seagull Boomerang, the following day and it arrived at lunch time on the Tuesday. Pretty good I thought. The Boomerang is my favourite ARTF trainer on account of its semi symmetrical wing section which allows it to be flown in quite a wind.

The only problem is that the needle valve assembly was broken in the crash and I would like to use the same engine, an Irvine 40, in the Boomerang.

Does anybody know where I can get an new needle valve assembly for the Irvine 40, red series, black carburetter, Made In England?

Ripmax have loads of Irvine spares

Look through as it may not be this one, or some of this one may fit

I think that may be listed for the older silver made-in-UK engine Denis?

Redline RC have the complete carb on Ebay for Ripmax's suggested price:


SMC also list if for suggested price:
