    Hey Jim. Looks like clearance is not gonna be an issue. My bolt circle seems to be the Rotax 75mm although I question the accuracy of my measurement. I'm making arrangements for shipping the prop now. Woo Hoo. I believe you when you say that UltraProp is inefficient. We'll see if the plane behaves any differently. I did note with the UltraProp the engine max RPM seems to be the same static and in the air......

    Thanks Jim. I need to check if I have the clearance for a prop that big.

    Hey Jim. It appears the UltraProp guys realized the inefficiencies and came up with a new prop. I wonder if it's any better....

    Hi Jim. i put an extension on the Pitot tube opening. It works somewhat better but still doesn't instill confidence. Looking at the picture it APPEARS it isn't facing directly in line with the wing. Maybe that may have some effect. I'll keep working on it but it's an all day process to retest after making changes,

    Static is open behind the panel. the pitot tube appears to be misplaced (gone). There is a socket of sorts on the leading edge of the left wing. I'm working on adapting a tube to fit. notice during the descent, it seems to work but other times when the AOA is higher, it's in a static part of the air flow. Since I'm shooting blind with the airspeed, I kept the nose down and speed up. I haven't been able to find a POH for this plane but did find one for it's brother, FP202 They're very similar planes.

    As promised, here is the onboard video from last Sunday. I still CAN'T believer that I am flying my own airplane, even if it is a little one.
