Finally got some work done on mine yesterday. Thanks to my buddy Ernie the firewall is moved back 1" so I don't have to go through it to get to the mixture screws. Tail wheel is in and all but the throttle servo is mounted. With a little luck we may get the engine mounted tonight and get the tail done.

Little more done. What do you think? Leave the head off the pilot, put bullet holes in one side and paint the other red, or head on?

Last nights work. Doesn't show much I know. Forgot to get a shot inside to show the throttle servo mount and fuel tank tray. Most of the work was setting up control linkages for the tail.

Balance checked and double checked. Out in the sun for the first time and a little run to hear the radial music.

I would love to take the credit, but my friend Ernie and Top Flite did all the hard work.
The cool thing is that opening up the exhaust and side vents really does work. When the engine is running you can feel it pushing the warm air out the side.

I did the same to mine & W/the Sist scale cooling fan, it should really move the heat out. I'm opting for an aluminum plate to fill the void after I extend the nose1 1/4" to A-5 length & use aluminum tubes flattened into an oval shape to simulate the exhaust stacks.

Finally got the Maiden in the books. Not the best video, but you get the idea. Have to get someone that can actually keep the plane in the shot on landing next time.
Need to adjust the wheels a little. I noticed I have about 2 degree toe out on the one side that was messing with me on the takeoff run.
For some reason the gear is stalling a bit shy of all the way up in the wells. That was messing with my trim. I think if I can get them to go all the way in the wells it wouldn't have needed any trim at all.
Love the sound of this engine with the exhaust ring. Never even got over 3/4 throttle and it still sounds like an angry beast.
