Terry , the majority of the Wolves and Mynd members wont even know this exists as they are not scale modelers.

Hi Cliff, Thank you. I do appreciate that. My question stemmed from the thoughts that :- if the sustainer ban on the Mynd was a democratic club decision as we are led to believe there would be many more 'no,s' then the poll is showing. As this is not the case it leads me to believe the ban is a committee decision.
Also bringing the poll back to the for front gives all who appose sustainers a reminded opportunity to have their say. Ter.

Actually have a look at http://www.psr-jet-system.com/___010_co ... xhtml.html
We just need smaller jets to be scale. And can be retrofitted to the ASW20, Discus and others.

I can't imagine the NT would have any objections to electric sustainers on model gliders, they allow a pawnee to operate just down the road and almost entirely unregulated use of the mynd by land rovers and trail bikes.

The added safety margin afforded by a sustainer would surely outweigh any negligible risks...

Slowly converting my fleet :)

Don't think the NT have any say in the operation of the Midland tug as the MGC own the land.
