      Any chance this beauty will make the trek to Horizon in June? Inquiring minds want to know.

            Successful Maiden flight and Towing experience. Found it was a bit nose heavy as I placed all the batteries up front to balance on the center of the wing tube ( up elevator trim ).

            The four cylinder is wonderous in operation on the DLE 170 canisters - super quite and almost no vibrations. Excellent flying airplane.
            Full stall landings are super slow too - had to add a bit more elevator travel than what in the manual though.

            not unexpected, is the landing gear springs - they suffer the same malady as the Pawnee springs. Not to worry as I found McMaster-Carr had similar replacement units
            Compression Spring - 4" Long, 0.938" OD, 0.642" ID - part number - 9657K138

            Replacement process was fairly easy once I figured out how to compress the spring..... gave the interior a coating of grease
