CRP-5

Does anyone know where i can get quite a cheap CRP-5 with a wind arm attached? Either an Amercian website or something like that would do. TI've tried the English webistes but they are quoting 75 which i think is a total rip-off.

Any help would be great.
Many Thanks

I would'nt bother getting one with a wind arm. Mine lasted two days before I ripped the thing off in frustration. It only gets in the way

Try Sporty's website. They may have what your looking for.

if you can hang fire for 7 weeks you can have mine. If i can get myself through the second set of JAA's then I never want to see another CRP-5 again, let alone use one.

Get in the way of what? personaly I thought it was a great addition to the crp, made working out 10x quicker and simple to use and no wiping the marker pen dots of the clear plastic!!

Agreed; I much preferred using the wind-arm - it was much quicker and less messy!

It would only get in the way if you're trying to use pen marks as well because that's how your instructor told you to do it!

Cheers

I know its been a year but I dont recall multiple crosswind questions, you either have a crosswind or you dont, not multiple ones...or have I managed to blank part of ground school from memory
