No problem with the pilot other than finally looking for another 100-200HP and more G's. Looked at the calendar and decided that it I am going to do that, now is the time. Thanks for the thoughts.

I am planning to go over to the dark side for a few years. I am tracking the Sukhoi market although some of my bad friends are lobbying me to look at Extra 300S's. Once that item on the bucket list is checked off and I reach an age where insurance is an issue I will likely look back at S-1's.

Once you are in your 60's, as you know, the calendar is not your friend. I am ready to have a happy childhood.

Regards,

Wes

Yea, turning 75 in a couple weeks and just got insurance quote. Almost double and they want a flight review every 12 months.

Using a cane and have to hypervent before I climb onto wing walk. Time to quit. Not really unhappy. I think I've flown thru the best years possible to have been a pilot. And this place has been an additional joy too. :)

Spezio is still for sale @ $13.5K

Wes, I sold my eagle to a gent in Oregon with a freshly restored Sukhoi and I think he still has it, his name is Dr Norman Willis. Last I saw the price was getting better and better. He’s eager to sell it.

I need to take more of the outside. What are you interested in seeing?

Tim Hess who built the engine was Michael Goulian's Red Bull engine tech. The engine flys as good as it looks.

Best of luck,

Wes

Thanks very much for the kind words. The sequence below is the Free Program I am coaxing the ship through the last two seasons. Some pilots here might enjoy trying it.

Best of luck,

Wes

Wes,

I love that program. I fly it all the time for fun.

I printed it out the last time you put it up here. Sometimes I add extra rolling elements. I like doing 1.5 on the reverse cuban, and add to the push humpty too.

I don't know about scoring but fun to fly.

Thanks!
