Default Finished up engine wiring

Finished up engine wiring.

Was going to do air-box and baffles next but seems I need cowling for that. So onto getting the last top skin on and starting the fiberglass work.

I went for a nice local flight. Quite some fog / low level clouds all over Switzerland.

But the view was amazing!

Cheers Yves

Nice pics, Yves! My aircraft is stuck under that fog, so no flying this weekend. I hope we get a break in the weather at a time when I can sneak away from work!

Default Glorious Wx - two ship from WVI to HAF

Playing with the GoPro on a stunning fall day for a quick two-ship flight from WVI to HAF, in loose formation (I'm still a noob at formation).

Best viewed in 4k with audio turned up. Scout's honor -- those are actual engine sounds!
