Shutdown - postflight

What a difference a year makes! Last year I was walking through the fields and woods of Fall. This year I get to fly over it all.

Sitting at 11.5 on the Hobbs with 30 landings. Oil change and prop flange torque check at 15 hrs.  Last 20 minutes on the flight the EarthX battery decided to throw a discrete code and light a warning LED in the cockpit - indicative of a cell charge/charging imbalance.  Waiting on a call back from EarthX engineer.   So, after building your airplane, you get to be the chief mechanic of your project as well...  Otherwise, the A/P tuning continues, the approach and landings get a bit more predictable ( I like 1/2 flaps for landings versus none mainly because of the sight picture) but it is a light airplane and sure does move around a lot with anything other than smooth calm air!

Up to 7 hours and 39 landings in mine. Site picture is quite a bit different than most planes isn’t it?
