Any pics or video of the TS3? How is it running?

No, I only used it for about 5 minutes to pop across the loch to see Kim & Nick.  Working most of the week and wasn't well on Friday.  TS3 needs some airhole adjustment as since fitting the divider skirt I'm getting spray over the front.  I managed 27mph down wind without ploughing and took it to 26 in to the wind, so divider is stopping the ball bang into the handlebar stem but now I'm getting a salt water shower.  I'll sort it when I can be bothered, but so little interest in flying it.

Shame, it would be nice to see it out with the others. 5 mins isn't really enough to figure out what's happening. .

My (oh my) WHAT a superb hovering week THAT was.
Hissing sid was a stimulating moment for me as he was NOT a happy bunny as i reached out to
steady myself against HIS warming rock  :o
Male Viper apparently. You have to search to actually SEE his head and eyes.

He NEVER took his eyes off me watching every move I made ---which understandably were all verrrrrry sloooow!
This occured a short while before the "last of the Summer whine" photo seen earlier!
He struck out towards me with a HISS! (short by about 10 inches)
OH such a naughty word shot out.

Nick
Thatís a cracking pic of you and Sparkle.
You should get that framed and maybe hang it on the wall.
