I usually don’t write blogs when there is little to report. But one of my 13 followers thought covid did me in. Not just yet. And here is proof: A rambling blog.
Last trip to Dayton was 5 days of snow and cold with no flying. Day 6 was sunny and clear but hangar door was frozen shut.
Good thing we have our Florida center. Except for the last 2 weeks of crap weather here too. Maybe this weekend I can get the Merlin Lite back in the air. The new engine monitor arrived and proves the one installed has a faulty temperature reader.
Replacement gauge is below and shows correct information tested for both CHT and water temperature.
In even more boring news we have molded a pick up for the new Whelen Blaze LED wingtip position lights with strobes.
Next 4 Merlin quick build kits arrive to our Dayton build center 1st week of April. Just a few days before I need to be in Florida for the Sun n Fun show.
The 1st Merlin Lite long wing will be in this container. I will bring it to our SNF booth. I doubt I will have enough time to flight test it prior to the show and I prefer not to conduct flight tests at shows. Not a good practice. So expect to see the Merlin Lite prototype in the booth with the long wing on display.
