Flapper info ? Recommend one ?

Recommended Posts

hello, looking at getting the above, seen them between £25 to £80 whats a good choice in the lower price bracket, maybe with timer or remote or TURBO, decent spike and motor, will only be used a dozen times a year, seen the  nighthawke, AA  A1, etc,   cheers

It' £20 over your budget but I took the plunge and bought an FF5 last year. The quality is second to none and whilst I've not had any problems with it, from what I've read, Nick is more than happy to help and send spare parts if there is a problem. Not had any others so can't compare them to the FF5.

I’ve just ordered an ff5 with remote. 

Looks the absolute business and haven’t seen a bad word about them.

buy cheap buy twice

As above I have only had my 2 ff5's a short while and i have used them 3 times the last being on bean drillings yesterday were i shot 87 woodies.

My FF5's did the business pulled them in from very large distances . I even took in the magnet in the early stages as they were flaring and it 

wan't anything to do with the pattern because as soon as it was in they decoyed fantastic . Get the FF5 you will not regret it.

buy cheap buy twice  is good avice   but  if you buy cheap then change the motor for a 300rpm brushless motor

then its sorted   you can even go to a 400 rpm and a speed controller 

its easy to do and makes a cheap flapper useable  also have a look for people selling crow flappers which have slower motors in

there normally cheaper and again just change the motor

i try to mount mine on a carbon tent pole as the flapping action makes it move about a lot and is more realistic

Flightline decoys, have a look at the Auto Bouncer I have just got one and it is very impressive.
