Reality finally sets in: four years in the searching and the cold, hard truth is that Elixir will unlikely find a new home in a quiet little hollow tucked away in the Tennessee hills. SYI is not a bad little airport and will just have to do. Therefore, the STOL role of N701RX is on the back burner. She will be seeing a lot more 6000' asphalt and little 200' grass. Oh well..
Changes: 1. Slats gone, replaced with "slits". How else to explain those 8 odd brackets on the wing LE? 2. Turf Glide mains gone- smaller Carlisle rubber in place- sure makes her easier to tug around on the pavement. 3. 45" pitch Sensenich ZK prop. Looks cooler than the 34" CK she had before, and since the strut fairings were installed, a more efficient air mover. Social distancing is a breeze at 2500" AGL! Maybe see y'all S&F 2021? Blue skys to all!
