C5 Support / Footwell width
« Last post by alecjw on 10, March, 2019 - 19:05:15 »
Hi all,
I'm planning to put the lithium batteries for my C5 in an enclosure but l wanted to check beforehand that the one I'm planning to use will fit. My C5 is at the other end of the country so I wonder if anyone could measure the width - at the floor - of the footwell space for the battery please?

It would be a shame, but I get the feeling this site had run its co*pardon my French*.  With only 9 months to go before it needs to be re-registered I can't help but thinking it won't get done.  There has been no new posts since I had a peek in early 2018.

This forum used to be a vibrant community of enthusiasts, but since Karl gave up the hobby it seems to have died a slow slow death.

I will pop back later in the year see if there is any sign of life, and if not I will silently fold my tent and go quietly in to the night.

Forums really are time machines.  Its now 2018 and have upgraded many times and am now on HighSierra (same Mac).  Did not have any of the issues RoboSoft had.  Time is a funny old beast.

Just to say that its now 2018 and I still have all my C5 equipment.  Not had them out in a good few years, but I sill have e'm.  If I stay on schedule towards the end of 2018 I will be renting out one of my properties (where I keep the C5's), so I don't know what the future holds, but for now I still have e'm.

What about you guys ? are you planing on driving them much this summer ?

Dear friends of the C5,
as luck would have it I have been the proud owner of a C5 (serial number 100051001173)since the end of June. It had been resting in peace for the last decades in the yard of a waterlily farm here in Graz. The original idea was to transport waterlilies from one pond to the other (of course with a trailer) :-) As the terrain is not very C5 friendly - the farm being situated on a slope - the project was abandoned pretty soon - after the controlbox refused to work.... the usual problems - blown fuse - burned diode - faulty IC ....

At the moment I am trying to put the parts together again  - the only problem I have is the hoop - it was badly out of shape  - Ed offered to send me a used one - which at the time didn't seem necessary to me - but now obiously it is .... :-) I emailed him already....

Will keep you informed!

Regards Hans (probably the only C5 owner in Austria)  :-)
