Took a break and was doing a ton of work on my plane. Ended up painting it and way to many other things to list but I did keep the radiator in the cowl and it stays at 160° in the summer heat woohoooo. Now if I could get pictures to load that would be great.

Hey kids this is the experimental world of aviation. That being said no plane is going to be the same no matter what you do . Mine is a true speedwing with a 582 3:1 c box and a 72" warp drive tapered tip. I get 1200 fpm solo and cruise around 120mph. You can have all the same equipment and get very different results. Landing gear being flipped around on avids has been a hot topic since it was designed. I heard about it years before I even got one so it had to come from people who tried and lived to tell the tail. Cg on these is also a hot topic and most are nose heavy and whatever someone does to make it a little more center is there business. I'm definitely not worried abot weight and all that considering I weigh 150lbs and my plane is around 535lbs. It has been put on a diet but I did add a couple things that didn't make anymore nose heavy or tail heavy . Shit I can honestly tell you I didn't weigh it after because the stuff I did was minimal in weight it was all for performance. If how someone sets there plane up and chooses to fly it is going to start bickering don't fly in it and stick to your own plane. I know this will start some mud slinging on my end bit when is everyone going to realise we have these little planes so we can do what we choose with them and use the manual as a guideline ? It's not a certified plane where tou have to stick to the book .... Now go out enjoy your plane and don't worry about someone elses choice. I'll get off my soapbox now and go make some parts for mine and a couple other peoples GOODNIGHT
