I managed to get a couple of things done today. Fine tuned the throttle and choke linkage. Bored a hole thru the firewall for the fuel lines and servo wires. Could not find my keyhole bits so I had to use wood boring bits, no where near as clean. And I got the fuel tank tray made.

The sanding has beed completed. Well the first round anyway. Wings were mounted, and the struts fitted. Went much easier than I anticipated. And it only took one shim in the front cane of 1/64 to bring all points of the wings to zero incidence. Woo Hoo!

The only major task left is to cut out and build the aileron's. But before I get to that I am going to back-up a little. I want to close up the cabane access holes I left, glass the belly pan, finish installing all the electronics, and get the elevator and rudder hinged. Plenty still to do!

I hope you end up liking it. In a moment of weakness, I bought one, too.

Tom there are two of them at my field. I broke them in and tuned them for flight for the owners. I think they are some real sweet engines. They are turning the same prop as my DLE55 and are smooth as silk at idle. Mine is the same so far on the test stand. It's ready to go and waiting on me.
