    Multi-Rotor Thread

    I dreamt of Budgie last night - time for a fly somewhere @igeighty - I guess after you've finished making up the cases (Doug bought some Kaizen Foam, which pulls away in layers, so a quick trip to Bunnings last night for another case, he'll be spending this weekend designing and creating the foam inserts) I think we've found the perfect hobby for when the winds and tides (and temperatures) are not at their best. Thanks for your comments @SoutherlyBuster - I just couldn't get enough of that sunset, it was soooo pweedy! That fly was just a general "get to know your drone" I can't wait to capture some kite buggy action along the beach. Should be well practise come our Kingston trip. @igeighty Prepare to get buzzed!

    Big kites for sale

    Hi Emily, Welcome to the forum! My husband @igeighty (above) is SO passionate about the MEFM's (Most Excellent Flying Machine) so if not already sold elsewhere, please can you provide us with the cost to purchase? And its his birthday in July, so would make a wonderful gift. In regards to the other kites, like you have with the MEFM, spread out the kite for a photo and we will do our best to try and identify them for you. But certainly, any MEFM's in your collection, we would love to take them off your hands as they will certainly be flow.

    London to Perth ** Non Stop! **

    I meant Port Lincoln SA (not Port Douglas) But both have good buggy beaches @Chook will be the best one to answer your question about the best time of year in WA. Although as for Chook, any time after work is a good time As for SA @roblukin is your man! He is by far the most travelled kite buggier on the forum (if not the world)

    London to Perth ** Non Stop! **

    Want to get on the plane, going the other way now. That made me a little home sick. Nice to hear at the end that it will be the connecting flight onto Melbourne. No messing around with the big luggage. $956 one way (on sale) Melbourne to London (via Perth) From QANTAS ~When travelling London Heathrow to Melbourne on QF10 and QF9, one free stopover is permitted in Perth in each direction. Onward travel to and from Melbourne must be on QF10/QF09. Not sure how long the stop over is for flights onto Melbourne but I guess if their giving you one stop over, you could spend a few nights in Perth and make sure your on a QF10/9 to get home.

    London to Perth ** Non Stop! **

    Yep, look into hiring a van and travel with the buggy. Let us know when you head over as we have riders from WA, along the south coast to Victoria, then up the east coast, so plenty of guys who will show you the best spots and will become life long friends.

    London to Perth ** Non Stop! **

    I was sometime this month @RedSky that they announced this was the go - however the trip from Perth to the East Coast is not cheap if your travelling with International Weight limits. A few years ago there was an Australian Rules Football game being held over in WA, (I think it was to determine the grand final teams, or something big in the sport), anyway, it was actually cheaper to buy a return ticket to London than it was to fly over to the other side of Australia!

    Wanted : MEFM and oldtimers stuntkites

    Would be interested in more information about your MEFM @deefledermaus But of course @Tataouine gets first say. In guidance with the Buy/Sell site rules, what is you location and at what price would you be selling it for?
