Great pics Conor!
Negative Oz, when I cruise ROP, I true 200 MPH or a little better, at 7,500'

Leaving the power exactly where it is, I turn the Dynon to "Lean" mode and watch the EGT's climb until peak, then the little boxes start appearing indicating degrees LOP. I stop at -50 and wait for the speed to stabilize, with the autopilot on and cruising perfectly level. I usually end up with 188 MPH TAS according to the Dynon 120, and now burning 11.7 GPH, instead of 15+

Best,
