    ahhhh, so it only will show charging if the battery is a bit low? It has been on a tender all along so Maybe its fully charged and not charging then

    Ok, so I turned on the master and then one by one all of my accessories. The needle went down a tiny bit for everything I turned on, so I guess its working. Guess Ill start up the plane this week and see if I can get the needle to move up with some RPMs. I started this plane for the first time a few days ago and noticed the needle didnt move but maybe my accessories were sucking up as much as the little generator puts out at relatively low rpm.

    Hmmm, cant seem to find a schematic, I know Ive seen one somewhere. Guess ill crawl behind the panel and have a looksie. Hoping its a gauge issue and not a generator issue!

    Amperage reading- 912
    Ok, so my electrical skills are probably my achilles heel of wrenching on planes. Have a 912ULS in the plane, runs great, but I have no reading on my amperage gauge when its running, or ever for that matter. Needle does not move. All the connections on the rear of the gauge are made and it lights up with the panes. What readings should it be showing when running or not running with the master on?

    Flew around with a buddy the other day and got some pics of the strip, looks better than last time I flew over since I took down some more trees

    thanks guys, Just gotta wrap up this paint job and get her home to start final assembly. Paint has taken wayyyyy longer than I would have ever guessed. Thank goodness a friend from the local EAA has been helping me or it would have never gotten done

    Little update, hope everyone had a nice Christmas. I havent accomplished anything in the plane in the last month or more, but hoping to get back to it this month. The goal is to have everything painted and home by march. Progress on the airport continues though, got the solar system up and running to power the property and also got a couple concrete pads poured as well. Bought a bigger mower Im fixing up since Ill be looking at 10+ acres of mowing once the strip is seeded and growing and hoping to buy a 30' wide roller at a farm auction tomorrow if Im lucky. Excited to get to the point where Im mowing and flying!!

    I liked the fences on the STI wing and am fabbing up a set for my model 3 rebuild to replace the crack prone (and HEAVY) droop tips. Ill have to weigh them and get the difference, Im sure that savings alone will make up for any performance loss from eliminating the droops.

    I used an Ivo, warp, and kiev on my mkiv last year. All very close in length and set to same static rpm. Kiev was by far and away the best, then warp, then Ivo in a distant third. Ran smooth but took noticeably longer to get the tail up and get off the ground, I HATED it after running the Kiev

    Roughly 1,300 by 100. Plenty for a kitfox fly-in

    well Im one excited man, thats for sure. Barely flown at all this year but hoping that sacrifice pays dividends next year, I plan on flying every day! 
    Dozer work is done, just needs a final drag and roll with the cultipacker. Prepping the forms for a concrete slab in the shop now, and installing a solar system as well to power the whole airport

    Roof is on ( still have to do the trim) and strip is muddy! Buddys loaning me a 20 ft disc so I can disk it all up and then drag/ roll it. Got the grade pretty close with the dozer though

    yup, still pluggin along. Project sat for a couple months as I worked on the airport/ barn (hangar). Many trees cut, many steel panels removed. Gotta get it all together because right now I have nowhere to bring the plane once paint is done!
