An update..I'm pleased to announce that ZU-GAC had her maiden flight yesterday the 6th March 2011. The flight lasted about 50 minutes and was performed by Russel. There were no really big problems, all the temperatures remaining in the green, The carb will need to be leaned out a little and we'll need to get a little cooling onto the coils. Firstly a very big thank you to Dene for having done an awesome job in building the plane, thanks also to Russel for the test flight and advice, it's much appreciated. Unfortunately we battled to start her for the second flight and time eventually caught up with us and Simone couldn't get a flight in....but next time.
Here are a few pics, what a wonderful feeling can't wait to tour with Simone.
