Friday and Saturday I helped a couple on their RV-10 build detach their match-drilled tailcone from the quickbuild fuse, deburr, dimple, then rivet the tailcone back on the QB fuse. I'm in the red shirt on top, bucking. Rich is on the bottom with the rivet gun. Dorada the dog is doing the QA.

Sunday, three of us flew our RVs from Essex Skypark (W48) to Blairstown Airport, New Jersey (1N7) to try out an airfield restaurant we had never been to before: Donna's Runway Cafe. It was excellent; beautiful flying day.

The folks at Approach Fast Stack (highly recommended) was my choice for the transaction, because of previous purchases and their awesome support. Tim Hass has always been great to work with. The trade of my old unit made the deal just a little over $2800.00 difference for the upgrade. The pinouts are the same, so it's literally a swap of the boxes, and update the database. Worked like a charm. The graphics are better, and the processor is way faster. The boxes don't look much different on the outside, but when you turn things on, another leap forward:-)....In the first picture, the new one is on the left.

Default Brake Leak

Flight on Saturday scrubbed do to a puddle of 5606 under my left wheel.

Removed the wheel pant and discovered a cracked line, made up a replacement line and reused the fittings with help of the crew at W48. By the time it was repaired, weather had moved in so no flying.

Sunday, I flew formation practice with friends (RVBill & Chuck) from Essex Skypark (W48) to Blairstown, NJ (1N7). A little late breakfast and flight home.
