Re: Wheel Hub dimensions

Jim,
I've been using Toste 400x 4 tyres on Slingsby 4 inch wheels until recently. At 75mm the wheels fit the standard Nipper axle and the Toste tyres also fit and have performed quite satisfactorily.

Re: Nipper trailer

From Popular Flying 1972

THIS MONTH’S COVER shows a novel way of reducing hangar fees. Dennis Lowther built this trailer for his Nipper. A complete on-load/offload takes just two minutes. Patt Bott took the photograph.

Re: Fuselage Frame Material

Hello,
I have Avions Fairy assembly drawing of the MK II fuselage drawing A T66F1085 which lists all the tubes used in the construction as SE 4130-MIL T6730 A. I believe that all Slingsby manufactured fuselages were made using T45 but that is only from memory.

MK III throttle system

My MK II Nipper (G-ARBG) has a push/pull wire system for the throttle control. I would like to replace it with a later Slingsby MK III throttle linkage. Does anyone have a complete MK III throttle linkage including firewall brackets (or any parts) they would sell?

You do not mention which system you are using, in...
