350iS Oil Temps

Just finished my annual inspection with 400 hrs on the 350iS. With minor exceptions the engine has been awesome so far. Compression's are all high 70's, oil usage is less than 1/2 qt in 50 hours. Every couple years one of the valves needs a minor tweak. No leaks, starts great. No complaints!Just curious...what kind of oil temps are other 350iS users seeing.

Ah yes - going to be an interesting journey!  Sold my Kitfox 5 last week and looking forward to getting the kit shipped and getting to work.  I may take you up on your offer to see how the cockpit fits related to the rudder pedal location. Beefed up seat cushioning may be a simpler solution.  I actually went to Lake Ridge and took about two dozen pictures of your aircraft just to get an idea of how some things went together.  For instance, the aileron on your a/c is hinged whereas the 610 uses a non-hinged aileron.  I have a lot to learn.

Hi David

Hope you don't mind that your thread on Jab vs UL has been hijacked to be a grill-UL session but I think it's all good information as long as Robert will step up to the plate and answer questions. Hopefully Jab will also respond.
