    Thanks for the pictures Steve.
    Can you now see the difference between those you have and Daves?
    Yours have the attachment from the bracket to the 'disc' on an angle which looks like a normal drouge when looking at SD2's but look how Daves are attached the brackets,they look like they are directly attached with no angle?


    cheers

    Wow you guys have been busy on this thread.
    The big difference is the size - the small ones here are only 40mm in diameter, much much smaller than the full sized ones.
    There is a slight angle to them too - see post 6 above, difficult photo to take.
    The wings are definitely fixed directly to the support thing.
    Dave.
