    Only 10 hrs so far. My wife and I are spending lots of weekends at our camper in Wisconsin love it there.
    After trying several different ways at landing I finally figured out what works best for me.  Flaperons are awesome what a difference they make.  Im sure I could have read a book or taken some tailwheel instructions but you know how it goes.
    best cruise RPM is 2700 that gives me 85mph and all the temps are doing great fuel burn is 4.5gph at that setting I am very happy with it.
    I loaded her up to 1100lbs the other day to see how she would climb and could hold 520fpm climb I don't know how that compares to others but Its ok for me.

    Here is what I did to improve mine. In the first picture you see I drilled a hole 1/2inch closer to the pedal that doubled my braking power and the second picture I added 3/8 of an inch to the pedal and made them fit my feet better that also helped a bunch, Hope it helps you out.

    Can you install an inspection ring on the bottom of the plane and just leave the wire dangle there? Or run it up right behind the seat and zip tie it there so its easy to plug in.
