Default The sky was on fire last night

Took Dilemma out yesterday. Parked the airplane and went to grab the towbar. Looked back at the plane and had one of those OMG moments.

Keep pounding rivets, running wires, sanding fiberglass and asking questions. It is well worth it.

Still tuning and breaking in. The new inlets and diffusers are not fully completed. I also had to upsize the inlet rings. This plane has basically a new complete FWF set up.

The new intake i designed is only dropping 0.1 inches below ambient MP reading at start of take of roll so i think that is working well. I can go on and on but you probably want to see numbers.

Not happy yet. But close. I have been working on the bush plane so this one is slowly being tuned.

that does fit pretty well. Sucks when the cowl has to come off.
