Fantastic write-up Sully! Congratulations on the successful maiden! Pattern flying is pretty much all I do with her as I've been bitten by the Habu too many times to do much else. But even simple pattern flying with her is anything but boring! As for the bench test, the wattage was around 1600 for the first 10 seconds or so than dipped down to around 1500+, so I just said the average was 1500 but I'm not really sure how to mark true averages...I'm new to the wattmeter thing so I was trying to memorize the inputs in real time while she was screaming at me at WOT....Is there a way to get the true averages, or somehow get a data read from the wattmeter instead of trying to figure it out as all the values continue to change in real time?

Again, congratulations! Here's to many, many more successful sorties!
