Flying might not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price.

ME 109 wrote:Awesome job you did with your Aquilla, Rafiek! Who is the supplier of Banana Pods for the Aquilla? I have big plans for Bumble Bee in 2017. (^^) Safe flying, enjoy your machine!
Thanks Andries vhpy

The pod I bought from Nathan at Kroon who happened to have one, but as far as suppliers, you can get one from Gerrit Tromp ##

Your trike looks awesome with the Winglets, I must say that yellow really suits the Aquilla ##

Next on my wishlist are winglets and an actuator...then we cooking with gas (!!)

I have taken my seats and panniers off and did what Oom Hans said would work, which really does and it so cool...I sprayed the seats black with black aerosol paint...came out super cool.Sprayed the yellow stripes back in...they now look super shweet :mrgreen: ##

Will take a pic the weekend...saved me alot of moola as one can of decent spray cost R115 and I used two ##

Wow, now that is EPIC...the working in scary countries part :lol: I know a guy who works in a lot of countries here in Africa and in some he always has a two man armed escort in case sh!t hits the fan...and this is an IT guy, not the president :lol:

Good luck with the wedding plans ##
