Mark, you doing the upgrades yet? I'm about half way through. Not sure about those mass balance on the ailerons. CH's letter makes me think twice those. Mine has 400 hours and no sign of flutter or fault when I openned it up.

Glad to see you're progressing with Phase 1. Now we have the SAIB to consider. Are you seriously considering tearing open your recently completed plane to do those mods. I'm pretty satisfied with my airframe as is. I think I'll just challenge the devil to a fly-off... winner takes all ;-)

How is phase 1 testing progressing?

Hey buddy, I finished the forty hours today and I'm looking forward to fly-ins, airshows, and pancake breakfasts around the state. I also hope to visit some builders who are in neighboring states within reach. Rest assured, vigilance and continued tweaking are still on the agenda. Shelbeyville is on the long term list of destinations.
