15hr report ...Andy Karmy RV-8
[ed. About as motivating
a post as you could ever want to read! dr]
I know I really enjoyed reading the early
reports of phase I when a number of the rest of you were going
through it, so here's my short update.
9 days, 15.2hrs of flying... WOW it's been awhile since I've flown
As of now I think the engine is mostly broke in, the temps have
stabilized and are generally below 400 when not climbing under full
power. My hottest Cyl is #2 and it's always the hottest in most any
situation. Have to start looking at some cutting down of the fin
blockers in front of 1&2 since the rear Cyls are the coolest. In 15
hours I have added 1 quart of oil thus far, so it's using a bit, but
not too much. The dual P-mags have been flawless thus far and start
and run easily. The Catto prop seems pitched right, but it's hard to
tell completely since I don't yet have the wheel pants installed.
A trip to the islands - video...Dgamble
The early fall weather has been
great in Central Ohio. I took the opportunity to make one last trip
up to the islands. I took a co-worker with me - it was her first
time in a small plane. She says she enjoyed it. You be the judge.

Slowly but surely it's starting
to look like something.
LOE'14 Begins Friday!
should have a LOW OIL LEVEL SENSOR in their aircraft! If you
don’t, why not? Are you able to detect a low oil level while you are
in flight? Many of us can’t without a low oil level sensor. We just
received a new batch of our Low Oil Level Sensors. This has been a
popular choice for RVs and other aircraft. It will fit right in most
O-360 engines and lots of others too. We also have a shorter model
we can offer now for shallower oil pans. If you want a custom sensor
designed for your aircraft, let us know. See our Low Oil Level
Sensor and more at
