That was great!

He mentions the landing being tricky..LOL I could see he "floated" there for a second or two.  I'm still debating on taking the slats off for the first few hours if only to "tame" that steep glide path.  Our grass field here doesn't look as smooth as the one Mac was flying from either! :0

Normal oil temps are 190 - 220 degrees.

Open the bottom of cowl in front of nose gear. Maybe add a 45 degree lip to draw additional air flow OUT of the cowling.

Looks good!! You will have to congratulate Mac for me. Do you know what his (and your) oil temperatures are averaging? I'm still struggling with higher temperatures than I would like to see. 85 degree ambient = 210 - 220 degrees at 5300 - 5400 rpm
