Got it! A very smooth air.file which made it real easy to nail smooth even climbs & descents.Did run into "one" slight difficulty (I might as well spit it out :) )I could only get one notch of flaps all the way to touchdown, with out getting the airspeed/flap warning. Other than that, a very smooth flight.L.Adamson

I'll have to check into this-but make sure you are at the right airspeed. 100 mph initially and 90 mph final. Also-on the deb there is no "one notch" -you can only judge flap position by looking out the window in the real plane-it is possible you are going full flaps at too high an airspeed.http://members.telocity.com/~geof43/geofanim2.gif

Hello....I just checked again, & only got "one button" worth of flaps. They'll fully deploy after setting down. BTW--- my RV is the same. 0-40 degrees of elec. flaps & look out the canopy. Plane doesn't yet fly, but at least the flaps work, so I watch them and "fake" flight! :)L.Adamson

LAdamson,Quick question. I noticed that you have the engine on the airframe. Since your more than a year away from flying it, what do you do to preserve it? Does the manufacturer's recommended pickling routine really prevent rust? Will you have it inspected (looking for rusty/pitted cam and crank) or overhauled prior to the test flights?Just a question that I've often wondered about when I've seen people that are home building.Tim13

My house is 4 nm WNW of Palwaukee. In fact, it's right in the trough of the group obstruction in my signature below. :)
