Got some flying in over the winter

Posted by [email protected] on May 4, 2013 at 1:20 AM

This winter I was able to get some flying in, unlike the last two.  I made myself a nice little engine preheater that raised the engine oil temp 40 degrees above ambient in an hour.  It is made with a small 1800 watt electric heater from home depot along with some air ducting attached to it.

I got up in January and February for several times.  I've put on about 20 hours since December including a bunch in April so I have a good start on the flying season.

I've also done some work on the airplane that I reported at the chapter meetings.  I finished the build out of the cargo box area and a neat divider panel to keep anything from falling out of the box into the aft fuselage area.

This blog area stopped working for me last year after the two posts I made.  Now that it seems to be working again I'll try and post more.
