Re: 400 vs Reload

Keep at buying your bits quite often the gear gets sold on here, or ask if a person has what you want you just never know your luck . The 400 is a very good craft. Read reviews on here. most is subjective but comes in handy.

Coastguard App.

Before I download App, I would like to ask those who are using this app how you are getting on with it ? Any problems to sort through . Easy enough to navigate for those not so great with modern tec, ect. $2.99 sounds cheap enough. Cheers
