Just finishing our A model. Will probably test fly this week after extensive 3 year build. I think we're up to 19 stc's and field approvals. Came in at 1126 lbs. 160 wide deck , extended baggage, removed hopper door, retained metal belly, on 850s and stock prop for now. And 2000 gw.

Mine is a 58 A model too. You have done well with the weight.

Click on "Go Advanced" below the reply pane and then click on "Manage Attachments" and follow your nose. Somewhere there are instructions on the site......

Cheers,
Andrew.

Yah had somebody smarter than me get the pictures on but she couldn't figure the upside down thing out. She thought it had to do with the way I hold my ipad when I take pictures.

Where are you located? Our family farms a patch of rice in Colusa.

Any words of wisdom or last minute advice? Looks like a test flight on Sunday.

Digital level on each outboard aileron bay rib should read the same and she should fly hands off.

Would an iPhone be accurate enough for this?

First flight was great. No issues except a sloppy landing. Indicates about 105 -110 at high cruise (2500 rpm). Take off at sea level was 2640 rpm. Flew hands off like Steve P said. It's very responsive to control inputs, more so than our 95. Can't wait for the next flight so I can learn how to land it.
