How about some sexy wheel spats? And take the Xenon sticker off, you've now put more effort into the plane than they have!

Re: Xenon RST finally the journey has ended

ending a bit of a let down! - no fuss / no redoing / no fault finding / no burnt wires / no blown fuses etc. in other words "job done right the first time!"

well done Greg & Co (^^)

Well its not all as we expected, the paperwork was almost as much of an issue as getting dinner at home on a Friday night after returning with lipstick in inappropriate places vhpy :wink:

The Fuel sender on the analogue gauge needs me to attend the the sender as I selected the incorrect UMA sensor for the application, the RST has almost no technical info available ? its a bit like a stunning new neighbour that appears and you cant find out any details on her past... then you meet her Mother and it all makes sense :shock: are any of you old enough to remember Xaviera Hollander :?: I know I should really have been hitting the books but I was young and am still just as focust :lol: :lol: boxes and fast cars ...still my only reason to live :mrgreen:

So here we are at 1000Ft doors off and I must confess its real smooth no shake (as in the stick does not move) but then with respect I did the blade balancing and anything less would have reflected on my ability.

Yep its a nice Gyro and Im still confused as to How Mak (the expert and now ex agent) felt the overhead panel would compromise the view?? well you guys decide.

For me it was just a project ...... I hear there is a sycamore that needs tearing down and total rebuild :?: .. vhpy would love to build a frame from the ground up.

In the mean time Im going to give myself a few short sharp tugs below the navel :twisted: for a job well done

Went for a flight in RDY. What a change from the last time. Thanks Greg, the changes you made, make it feel really different. The work you did is very professional. I don't think anyone could have done it better. Well done.
