Anyone tried the emc-vega ultralight tubing yet?  Specs from website

Ultralight

EMC-Megarubber Ultralight 4.0 / 6.4 mm
For model aircraft from 200 to approx. 600 gr.

Max. Usable elongation: approx. 600%
forces approx. 1.8 / 2.3 / 2.9 kg at 300/400/500% elongation

I will check on the shipping.

 

As a side, hyperflight have their tubing back in stock.  It's a bit thicker and when I tried a fellow club members, I found it too strong for my F3RES.  Seemed better suited to a stronger model.

I'll share the cost if it gets another tubing type into the country for testing and comparison with Pete's data.

I emailed emc asking for full price + vat + delivery + import duty + fees

No response yet.....

Vega got back to me with the following:

"until the Brexit thee was no need for resellers.

Presently we ship without VAT. Import VAT is 20%.

We have no overview about customs fees and duties. Sorry.

For RES we offer the RES-Sets according FAI rules.

SO the shop will give the price excl EU VAT plus shipping. No import charges."

 

22 meters is going to cost around 54 euros + 30 euros delivery + what ever customs slap on.    So a minimum of £36 each  (for 2 people) for just the tubing.

 

The perfect tubing that HobbyKing used to sell must still be out there somewhere!!! grrrrrr

David, did you ever try that eBay bungee last year?  I never made mine up so don't know if its any good.

Jon, I managed one launch but it was down wind, pinged off at 15 meters chasing a strong low thermal.   Clearly not a valid test.

The side walls are tiny bit thinner than hobbyking rubber but the stretch is just as good.  I suspect it will lack the energy but I will report back when the jet stream sorts itself out.
