Thanks Barry. I was going to run a throttle linkage on it at first but it was a pain so It's on a fuel shut off right off the bat. Once you've put together a BCS it's like riding a Bike.

Well???

What does that mean???

It didn't need any trim?

One click up?

two clicks left?

It crashed on takeoff (I hope not!!)
IMWTK!!!

A couple clicks of left aileron but that could have been the wind. I'll fly it again tomorrow and see. I'm kinda mystified because I added 3/4 oz wight on the left wingtip to laterally balance the plane.

It, the airframe, probably has something that is exactly dead on and you are compensating for that. maybe a slight warp in the wing. i don't know but, it sounds like it is pretty darn good with only a couple of clicks of aileron.

Yeah. I'm not worried about it. You know as we'll as I do a couple clicks of this and that isn't what makes or brakes you finishing first. I thought it flew really nice. The color is easy for me to see. I'm very happy with the way th day ended.

My friend at my field said it didn't look fast. I had to explain to him that being its first flight and running a fuel shut off. I didn't want to run it as I would in a race. I backed it down to 15.2 for the first flight/trim. I'll fly it tomorrow at peak

Looks good Dale. I like the trim, should stand out well.

Thanks Brad and Barry. I love my BCS's. Brad, are you coming to Mulberry in October ?

Do not think I will be able to make Mulberry. New job, not
enough vacation time....
But, I do plan on going to Julian in November.
See you there.
Do not bust up any planes before then.

Oh Man. Flew my BCS II this morning. It's nice to have two BCS's dialed in ! It's only peaking at 16.3 right now because I'm still working it in but it seemed like it ran smooth as heck. a couple more runs and the RPM's should start to rise.

Sounds like a plan. Is that your new motor you are breaking in?
