    The End of the Innocence. I listened to that tune on the way to Birchwood today and it seemed appropriate. The Wildcat just flew it's first two test flights. Man, what a ride. Gobs of power, crazy rate of climb, an honest straight and level 100 mph at 24/2400, hottest CHT 330*, oil temp 170*, all in ambient temps around 55*. The beast will take some getting used to. Mostly the power and the flaps, but the rigging is good and with only a couple of small items to tidy up? It's time to burn avgas.

    End of innocence, indeed.

    And maybe a wild shout when nobody's around?

    Excellent news.

    Congrats on the build...

    Wildcat Cub

    Mike's transfer labels look great. I like the red text on black panel. One of many details that make me smile.
