    Congrats on Retirement!  Glad to see your getting some time to get back to the Avid.  I believe there is quite a few of us patiently waiting some true results with the 670.  Or maybe not so patiently! 
    Great to hear first runs have went well!
    Wish you the Best on your Test Flights....Again looking forward to some Great Results!  Cheers Randy

    F7a Bellcrank
    Does anyone have an extra F7a bellcrank for the upgrade?  Or doing a rebuild and could give one up for a short time.
    I've been in contact with Mark from the new Avid about getting my Speedwing Ext kit and also asked him if he could provide F7a upgrade.  He has searched and has not been able to find any weld notes on it.  So he currently can't make them.
    So if someone could provide one for a short time they can copy it and start to make new ones to help a lot of Avids in the future.
    Thanks in advance for any help!  Cheers Randy

    All controls nice and Free now!  I did drill out first elevator control rod bushing to 5/8" which allowed a nice smooth glide through the rest of the bushings.  It seems the first bracket might be welded at an opposing angle to the way the rod goes and this caused it to bind more in that bushing.  Not sure but works much better now.
    Found this friendly feller watching over my garage for me this weekend!
