Getting very close. Engine is getting hung shortly. First runs will be in about 2-3 weeks we are thinking. Have not posted for a bit. Just an update here with some photos
Covered and painted with Super Flight 7
Initial cowling plug. Catto is producing the new cowlings for the BCSC but we did not want to wait on the completed product so we made our own.
Getting ready here for final assembly. Love my new tires! She will be fast!
Wing painted and ready for trim in this one. Trim is now done but dont have a good photo yet
Getting ready for final assembly
Put the Aero Fab stick control in. Set me back $3300. Hope it pays off. This means I can land anywhere now correct? I mean it is all about the stick
Wiring for the Garmin G3 going in
TK Tail shock. Will see how this holds up. May end up with Dan’s system
Big side door. This is one of the concerns. Will be anxious to see how the big door holds up and flies
Tail chevron. Its growing on me. Did not like it at first. Now I think its pretty cool. As me next month I may have a different answer
We were hoping to be done by now but we had a significant problem with the paint wicking. Needless to say we had to wet sand the entire thing and have a do-over. The paint is now beautiful!
She is in for final assembly and looking to be flying in 3-4 weeks. 35″ AKBW’s will be on her soon and hoping she comes in under 1250…Fingers are crossed
