Default Soaking up the sunset

Today, I had a pleasant shakedown flight. Tested my new interior and associated heated seats. Also tested the new autopilot that TruTrak so speedily sent me.
Hopped to PRC to see a friend then came home chasing the sun. The sky was splashed with beauty.

What is that object in the first photo? Definitely not a prop.

Default VG tabs

Acro girl,
You notice much difference in stall with the VG's on the wings? Any other advantages you found?

Default nice pics

You mentioned heated seats, can you tell me what size breaker and wired you committed to them?

Do you like them?

Dave

Heated seats......Tucson AZ. Not what I was expecting.

Great pictures BTW. I love the desert at sunrise and sunset.
