Default Reno SDS User Update

Lee Ulrich (RV-7) took first place in the Sport Medallion race today at Reno and Tim Slater in his Rocket took 3rd. Congrats guys!

The fast guys in Sport Class Gold apparently all had problems shortly into the race so we didn't get to see what could have been a great competition there.

Yes, bummer that Jeff, Andy, and Jim all had to pull up and out. But a huge congratulations to Mathias Haid, who won in his Thunder Mustang. While it is less satisfying to win by having the really fast guys drop out, Mathias did run one of, if not the, fastest races he has ever flown. So - well done!

(Sorry, I think the Falconner V-12 in the TM uses a Motec
ECU, and would probably be better with SDS, but still, congrats are in order!)

Default RV-14A Vid

Put this up last night: https://youtu.be/Cl2QlJwBoPY

Many thanks to Ivan Kristensen for dropping in and making this video possible.

Was my first trip in a -14. Van's did a great job on the design and Ivan built a very clean plane.
