Back home again after a multi state trip. Spent a few days at SEFF then a couple days up in Michigan to hang out with some o'l pals of mine from way back. With one red eye and one early morning airline flight in the mix, hanging out with old friends til the wee hours of the morning catching up on old times it made for staying awake for more than 30 hours straight on a few occasions. I got home home last night and my head hit the pillow and I slept for 11 hours and I think I woke up in the exact same position I fell asleep in...now that's tired..

Had a great time with the SEFF crew and John Morgan and Bryan (ATIS) were very generous with offering me stick time on their very beautiful airplanes. Thanks guys. Great to finally meet you Bryan. Congrats on finishing up a 20 year military career.!!


I will take another day of just relaxing and unpack my stuff, then it's back to the T-38 build.

Yes sir!!!

I got the fan position's established. I put everything together to see where they will need to go to get the CG and all looks good. Shorter batt wires than I originally thought. Just have to do a little of this and a little of that and of course I can't forget to do a little of both this and that to get it all hooked up good. Are you following me here....keep up now

Hi Rodger,

Fans aren't in yet. I have to make some mounts yet. Might not get anything done this weekend on the 38, Ed and I may head over to Utah for a jet rally over there.

Well said, if you do too much of this and not enough of that, Well, we just won`t go there.

Naw got a ways to go yet. probably a couple weeks to finish everything up and then a few days to do the pre flight checks and stuff. Didn't go to Utah so I stayed home and worked on the 38. Spent the last two days soldering. Didn't realize how much electrical work I had to do, double the work for a twin. Finally got both power plants wired up and ready to go with all the cap packs installed along with the additional caps I added. Today starting to make the hardware needed to mount the fans and I ran servo wires from the back to the mid section to the RX.

I ordered new flying stab pivot arms as the 1" ones I had on there were not taking enough advantage of leverage and I was dialing the throw down in the TX, so I may as well just put longer arms on to get the throw down and give the system more power in the process, longer arms should be here in a few days.

I haven't made a canopy yet, not enough foam to make one so instead of buying another 8 foot sheet I may just wait till Sparky pulls the lexan one for us. How's the progress on the plug?
