Maidened!!! But why is it every time I go out to maiden a new plane it has to be windy!!! Just one flight, but found to be just "slightly" tail heavy, (just a little bit of climb inverted). Flew with plenty of power, and a five minute flight took 65% out of my 5000mAH packs. I do feel it needs a little bump at half throttle, so I kicked it up to 65% at half stick... Great roll rate. A good friend of mine was standing next to me when I kicked it to high rate ailerons and gave to full right....his comment..."Geeeeeze!!!!" First touch on landing a little bit of a bounce, but then just floated in....

Sorry no photos, but I promise, it did happen....

Just trimmed the cowl for OS GT22. Would have had to cut a bigger hole than just the muffler and engine assembled to allow the cowl to go on. Decided to cut two smaller holes in the side of the cowl so the muffler can be installed with the cowl on. Also the one small hole on the top of the cowl to get to the carb screws. That one is going to be a little tough to navigate to the carb as I missed it by about an eighth of an inch too far back.

At the moment it has a carbon fiber one. I have a nice Red Tru-Turn sitting in the prop box once I get the choke to work as I don't want to mess it up with the starter.

I'll have to ask ghoffman whom got it in the first place. It is not 2.5" I believe. However I found this one.
