Can you see the hole or is it too small?
As I said in the previous post... I can't even see the hole itself

both from the inside and the outside

At first, when I heard the leak I though that the valve failed or something... when I realized it was the T... I was like WTF?!?

I do remember figures that gippeto got when he pressure tested them... so this is slightly unnerving to say the least

I'm with MrC, a weakpoint at the seam from a defective casting which gave way under pressure.

If pizza delivery could only figure out a way to use this system. Could go from 30 minutes to 20 minutes or less. L0L

forget about pizza - it would be ideal for drug trafficking and drug dealers

ohh don't forget about terrorists -
1. open google maps & find gps coordinates of the intended target
2. programme the drone
3. take off and switch to autonomous mode
4. drop payload
5. drone automatically returns to the selected landing site

Advantages of this approach ?
no witnesses, foam planes are basically stealth ;-), planes don't even have to transmit anything for most of the time (just receive GPS signal)

Damn future... you scary :shock:

I'm looking at buying another motorbike fairly soon, since I've got some income, my mate has a Yamaha DT175 going fairly cheap, because I haven't been on a motorbike for 6-7 years, I really need to learn to ride again, I don't intend to jump straight on a CBR250, and I can't afford a Ninja, nor do I think I could fit on one.

This gives you an idea of the price of a DT175 here, he's asking $800, might be able to knock him down a bit. (DT175s stopped production in the US sometime in the 80's IIRC, but we kept making them until 2003).

Now, because I'm not a flash hot rider, should I get the DT, by which time I should be working, or save my money and get a sport bike? Bear in mind, I can only register the DT as a recreational bike, so I can ride anywhere but highways and where the streetlights are more than 100 meters apart.

And this question is for Brian, I think we're roughly the same build and height (6'4", 210lb), is there any 250cc sports that I'll actually fit on, or should I look at cruisers. There's some really cheap ones around, but I'd cry if I dropped it, whereas I'd just need some plastics if I dropped a sport bike.

Zeus, im 162cm and weight little under 90 kilos, and got a Suzuki GS500 and 125 in the garage (gs500 waiting for next sumer and license to drive it). Both bikes are REALLY easy and comfortable to ride. Also they are cheap bikes. I suggest GS :)

Those GS500s look good, I think one of my mate's fathers has one. They go for around $2500-$3000 down here, which is reasonable for a road bike.
