First engine run of my UL350iS installed on my CH750 STOL

Thanks to the combined effort of my good friends James Yeh, retired air force mechanic, Righard Chen, avionics engineer of CTLS, on the memorable afternoon of May 24th 2018, again through combined effort, I started my 350iS for the first time, fuel fed via a makeshift fuel tank on the ground (due to limited workshop space, wings and empennage will be attached in the field), getting rid of the vapor lock took some doing; after pumping for a few times, and religiously waiting > 5 minutes after each 5 seconds of contact, no fuel reached the injectors..... So we disconnected the fuel line at the injector and used a spare battery to drive the fuel pump, and soon fuel aquirted out, repeating the same process to the return line, securing all fuel lines, wiping all fuel clean, I was back in the cockpit, CLEAR! contact, and I heard the best engine roar since my TCM TSIO-550C a life time ago.

Reving the engin up to 1200 RPM just to check on the numbers, 0.2 hrs. were logged in the engine log.

Now begins the awsome process of registration!

I can be found on "Kit & SLSA airplanes engines and propellers"!
