Default What did you do with your RV this weekend? (6/18-19/2022)

….I have a fast leak on the RV’s right tire, so I took the RV-15 wannabe (cub) up for .9 with the doors and windows open. In the shade. Will bet 101 today.

Dreams of doing this in a -15….. ;^). Gonna be awesome.

I completed the first project in my weight reduction / CG improvement / IFR upgrade remodel.

Out with the old:



In with the new:





Since I was doing a vacuum system delete as part of my IFR upgrade, the recent post on the Monkworkz vacuum pump pad mounted generator put me into full research mode. This included reading Paul's article in KitPlanes. I was sold, and I decided to make it my primary power generation device. Bill has been very responsive about his product and is great to work with. I highly recommend him as a vendor.

I may add a second full sized battery to my design later (aft mounted, further helping my CG issues). But I still need to put all this:



Into the hidden recesses of the panel, etc.



Glad the cool front came through last night, allows for longer days at the hangar!

Default Turned over the clock

Made a breakfast run to KCMA this morning but the restaurant was closed with a sewer stoppage, so we flew over to Santa Paula for food. On the way home we watched as the Hobbs turned over the first 1000 hours.

Flew 88 year-old Dad around Catalina for Father's Day. A rare June day with no stratus so took advantage.

Hung the engine. Decided to break the prop out of its crate too and attach it briefly just to make the photo op that much more fun. FWF fun is about to begin...

Default Smithsonian Bound

Spent Saturday at the Smithsonian at Dulles, and had the RV10 on static display. Always a fun event.

Also had Potomac Approach ask me to slow down on downwind. With the wind pretty sporty I was doing 175 across the ground. https://youtu.be/aiUd4v6nsAA
