      Hey mate nice to hear your getting back into the swing of things. Temperatures are a nightmare in the loft but it is doable. Insulating your room using foil backed 50mm boards is a good way to go. You can get them on eBay as seconds because the corners are a bit bartered. I’d also look at the new ceramic metal halide lamps for heat control they are supposed to be amazing for both quality and yield,giving off a lot less heat than traditional hps. The best idea I saw for keeping roots warm in the winter was getting some corrugated plastic then laying out underfloor heating cables in the grooves and screwing another piece on top ,voila giant thermostat  controls heat mat which runs water off a treat.  Theirs a few ideas buddy good luck, welcome to the forum

      I just use canna A&B all the way through mate, a bit of rhizotonic early on til theyre in the final pots really, some hesi powerzyme, and some hesi boost from week 2 flowering to about week 5, then just A&B reducing it down to when its time to flush   I find this works for me, might not be getting a gpw but im well happy with the flavours/ end product   all the best

      I've been doing a bit of reading on paramotoring lately. I started flying power kites at an early age and I know 2 stroke motors so it seemed like a logical progression short of getting my PPL, and as much as I would love that I'd rather not deal with the costs associated with general aviation, even gliding soon adds up. I'm still on the fence about self-teaching however, and that's also coming from someone with a love of superbikes, some experience flying, a lot of hours in a simulator and a DIY approach to everything   From what I can gather the wings are very similar to a kite, they are essentially the same design and handle in the same way and though the controls are slightly different they're very similar, the difference being in kiting you would use the power lines to control direction a lot more than with the parawing, whereas with the wing it's the brakes that are used to control direction and angle of attack and you have 3/4 sets of lines across the canopy instead of the 1 you have with kites. Watching through videos of collapse drills and situations where people have had to deploy their reserve chute does slightly alleviate my apprehensions, but it still looks bloody scary.   Another thing that's putting me off is seemingly the lack of locations you can fly in the UK. I'm not into the idea of joining a club, solo long distance flights are what appeals to me, but it's not just as easy as finding somewhere to take off and land. Aside from not being allowed to fly over congested areas, there exists around every airport airspace that is restricted at varying altitude and distance, and given how many aerodromes there are it's most definitely a case of having to make flight plans if you're not flying an already established spot or far away from civilization. Even with that, VFR general aviation won't neccessarily be flying any patterns so you still have to look out for other aircraft. It's really impressive just how high these wings can go too.   Personally I'm not sure if I will get into it, all in all it seems gliders might be the best way for me to get into the air. It's a higher cost but will afford much more air time and is a lot safer.
