Make sure you let us know when you are coming to Aldinga. I will come down and say hi. I find my 170 ok but then I have more than enough padding. LOL.

Hi ALl
well ,sat we filled the UL with oil, tied the fusalage to a post and fired up the motor ,at idle 40 psi,at full throttle 55 psi all temps in the low range , the engine starts first pop ,being fuel injected easy start, it is a sweet sounding engine , prop balanced, no vibrations at all , the toe brakes need very little pressure to hold it ,even at full throttle all fuel lines no leaks , all electrics and gauges work final fit up and transport to get our test pilot to get it in the air ,so close ,but no rush (a little bit exited though) and we also have a hanger now .
cheers Gareth & Craig
NB .i have a video but can,t get it to load
