    Elite Dangerous. Only just started.

    Currently making pennies, getting lost, overshooting stations, avoiding conflict, trying to navigate, picking up random bits of junk like a bin forager and generally muddling about like a learner swimmer with armbands in a sea of sharks.

    But it is fun. :)

    iirc pull back when the ETA shows 7 seconds and keep it there until you're save to drop out.

    Think 7s, 70% throttle at 7 seconds out, if you do it right the timer will stay at 7sec all the way into safe drop in distance. Of course you are prime interdiction material whilst doing that, the loop of shame is not without advantages.

    Panasonic TX 40EX700B basically bought this to replace a Hisense of the same size as although it has a great picture it is so slow to do anything from power up to change channels. Perfect size for the good ladies room.

    Yes, 75% is the sweet spot, but you can always use gravity breaking off a planets gravity to slow you down, which is a lot quicker, but you need to time it right.

    Also to know you're at 75% if you look down at the throttle, you will see a grey plate, line your Throttle up with that will give you the magic 6sec without over shooting.

    This clip will show you how much quicker each method is. :)

    Well the Chinese purple crankset I ordered was junk. The left side non drive arm would not even go onto the very blunt looking spline. So I got this from a company in Notts.

    Yeah, they do a whole ton of products. Always makes me laugh when I'm browsing the amps :D They do some nice valve stuff too, but whoever thought of the name needs to find another line of work :D

    A small tip, phone up their sales team and ask why they show 4 versions of the V8 but you cannot see any obvious difference, then mention that you cannot decide between the V8 and the Sharp Duo and you may well be offered a 20 quid discount if you still give the impression that you are undecided this may well be increased to 40 quid.
    So I got mine for around £320 but I see the sale price 9£369) has ended and they are back up to £520.
