    Hey up,

    Well your not short of hope are you?


    Firstly, welcome to the club.
    Please do take the time (when you get it) to put up an intro.

    Whats your budget? Fully working craft do come up for sale on here, but not very cheaply and not very often.
    Those things in particular don't come up very often either, you might be better off time-wise if you were to get something a bit older.

    Ebay is where all the bargins are, but be prepared to work on it to get it to where you want it.

    Personally, I'd sort your trailer first. Trailers fetch a higher price than you'd think so you might have to get one and modify it.

    If your anywhere near Portsmouth, send me a PM.

    Good hunting.

    MY TS3 will be on the market shortly once I have finished flight testing the new fail safe AV mounts and up rated thrust frame. It wont be cheap though


    Here is a vid of it being static tested today. Still a little adjustment to do but hopefully flight testing next week.

    Hi Alan

    Have seen your craft and very nice it is. We did speak via email and believe you are in North Scotland?

    Did you conclude the noise level figures?

    Kind regards

    HI Tym,


    Yes I'm near Isle of Skye.


    I have just made changes to the thrust frame and fitted fail safe engine mountings as the original ones allowed too much engine movement. I also looked like one of them was bottoming out on the hull, so vibration and noise would have been exacerbated. I am hoping to test fly the craft again next week and also take some sound readings of the new set up. Today I have been shimming the bearing block mount so the thrust belt runs true. My neighbour has commented today on how much quieter it is now compared to before, while I was static testing.


    Here is a video taken today:
