Default Plenum? bright yellow fabric Plenum?????

is it ok to drift this thread now?

...what's up with that plenum on top of Vlad's engine? Looks like it's anything but rigid, but a brilliant idea.
Gotta be quite heat resistant though.
okay, anyone know what this is? and where do I get one? ;-)

Default Horton hears a WHO

That Vlad gets around. Just checked his APRS tracks and realized he's probably visiting the Horton guy. Show him some good Alabama hospitality, Dan!

P.S. Woops, he's now airborne again, with just a short pit stop at Wetumpka.

P.P.S. That magneto must have worked well...from New Mexico to South Carolina. Way to go, Vlad the Voyager!

Bill,

Landed at an undisclosed location in SC. Activated the airport terminal alarm, sheriff showed up then we got a free ride to a motel. Departing to NJ early morning I might show up in your woods in two weeks.

Slick mags are the best I became the staunchest supporter. First set lasted thousands of hours and I replaced them still operational. Well, one disintegrated on me recently but the replacement was sourced within several hours. More then that, I had about a dozen offers ready to ship immediately. What alternative ignition vendor product could get me going again in the middle of nowhere in less then a day? Go Slick! J. R. the petition for a distinguished medal is forwarded to the Kremlin. It will be approved within hours...

John,

Thank you very much again. Your magneto works like a swiss watch, clocked first 15 hours on it. They made good stuff in last century. You have to speed up and finish that RV9A of yours and we go two ships to Russia. Not in flip flops though...

After buzzing your country side for couple days I came back home to this

John is timing the magneto. He taught me how to do it and left me his buzz box.

Having fun on Mars.

Vlad,

Sure was great to meet you and John and glad to hear you made it back without further issues.

What is all that white stuff on the ground under your airplane? Looking closer... what is all that grey stuff in the air?!?!? Where do you live?!?!?!
