It's not going to make a lot of difference here or in much of France. All they are banning is SALES of NEW vehicles. Have a look round and see how many 10-20 year old cars there are on the roads now. And when you can't buy a proper car I bet there will be loads more "classic vehicles" around.

Try Premier UK Retracts, they also go under the name of Kingfisher Aviation. They should come up on Google.
I had some retracts made by them earlier this year and the quality is very good.

RC Flight Chatter / Oleo Legs/Unitracts
« Last post by bigron2 on Yesterday at 20:23:57 »
Hi All

I placed an order with Unitracts back in March for a pair of Oleo legs for an Apache (SLEC) Super Chipmunk.

I've not heard anything since, when advised he would be in touch in a couple of weeks to take payment and arrange delivery after they were made up. However, I've heard nothing since and each call goes through to Voicemail and despite leaving messages I've heard nothing back.

Firstly, I hope everything at Unitracts is all ok.

I would however like to fly my completed model which is just awaiting a pair of legs - does anyone know of an alternative supplier who can provide a pair to my dimensions?

Thanks

Well, by the number of huge wind turbine units passing through our little French town at the moment France is well on the way to having a major percentage of renewable energy available. I'm thinking of hijacking one for our flying field so I can keep charging my flight packs. I might have to switch from a hybrid car to fully electric. By the way the French government has made a similar commitment to banning infernal combustion engines by 2040. Most French drivers clatter their way around the country with diesels. I can see another revolution coming :ev

Let's all use public transport😁
Buses and trains, all electrically powered by then? Lots of electrification needed to make that happen. Not much sign of that yet apart from HS2

So what you are saying is that air pollution is an acceptable price to pay to maintain the status quo.

 Too little too late,  :banghead: the overpopulated world is doomed,,,  :-\

800 MW is a huge underestimate as power will be needed en masse for quick charge, or overnight so unless you stagger charge times and that aint gonna happen is it, you will need  a vast amount more, or the resultant frequency drop would flatten the grid,.

By this time we will all have smart meters, if the grid starts to get overloaded the controllers will tell your meter to switch the charger off and reduce the load. Leaving lots of drivers wondering why their car never gets chargedc properly.  :banghead:

looks like the yogurt knotters really are going to have their way and have us back to the horse and cart and in the cave.
