The oil pressure was a little low? Sender unit faulty...We've done the first service and all is well, let's just fly off the 40 hrs? :mrgreen: :wink:

What a wonderful feeling, yesterday was truly a tester for the temps, 37 in the shade? After flying a half hour on Saturday, Rego and Simone went for a hour and twenty minutes round past Dene's place and onto Uitenage along the Gliding Ridge. The Plane is performing extremely well and flies hands off! Once again thanks to all who have assisted us and in particular Dene for your persistence, your efforts are truly appreciated. THANKS. Note the now painted cowls.
