Thumbs up First Flight Answers

After starting a thread "First Flight Questions", I think I owe this forum a thread providing "First Flight Answers": this is the quite unedited debriefing of N124BX first flight that took place today:

Is not the RV-12 a great airplane?

Sounds like you may have some problems getting your plane back after the 5 hours have been flown off. Congratulations J-P.

John, thanks. I remember someone mentioning he had the same problem but I did not have time to investigate or talk to VANs. I just suspect that it might be related to the conversion harness I am using as I got the wiring for the D100 and had to use the Skyview. It looks like a grounding issue but If anyone has suggestions, you are welcome.

If your PTT switch causes your EGTs digits to go crazy, contact Dynon. I just sent my EMS-220 into Dynon for the factory CB mod to hopefully take care of this problem.
