Just another data point for comparison with other 8 owners and builders.
After a few hours learning how to fly (and particularly how to LAND!) this thing, I've got the confidence needed to install the wheel pants and gear leg fairings without subjecting them to assured destruction!
Lots of work has gone into these, and they're still not perfect, but I think they turned out pretty good.
Now for the performance numbers.... drum roll please!
8k density alt., 10gph = 75% power according to the Dynon giving about 187kts true
Throttle back to 8gph and it's an even 170kts at the same alt.
I'm a newbie to the CS prop and have quite a bit of testing to go to really hone the performance #'s at various altitudes, but based on these initial numbers, I couldn't be more pleased.
