Beth did our flutter testing yesterday, with some help from the nice folks at Dayton approach, and checked N44VF up to 205kts IAS! Next we’ll be doing some high-speed runs in level flight to see what she tops out (in her primer-covered, no pants incarnation).
Also of note, we took her to the pancake breakfast and R/C Flying Circus today, and set her out on display. That was kind of cool in its own right as it was our first chance to really let people look at it and ask questions. Then Beth and Ray (in his Vari EZ, N47VE) went out to do a lap of the field in loose formation. I got some video, but they never really got joined up properly, so it’s not quite as cool as it could be. Chalk that up to an area that needs more work.
Also, I think this was the morning that our friend Patrick went skydiving at our airport, pictured below…
