I talked to Bill Campbell this morning. He stated that he used lightweight starter and alternator also Elec Ignition-still needed to put batt+weight at rear(tail) bulkhead. He, also, is using Warp Drive prop and is quite happy with it. Weight under 800 lbs-no paint, under 7 gph at about 130 mph. About me-Started construction Aut 07-Targeted first flight, summer 10---until The Mod. Just about all the work I did this summer must be undone and redone. Wife feels sorry for me and gave me her bay if the garage and I can now set up 3 work stations(wings and fus).

Hi Ed I have a 0235C1B installed in my plane. To date I have 50 hours on it. It is now waiting for the up grade.The plane flies very well with the engine. I am still fine tuning it, adjusting the Warp Drive prop and other things. Besides the up grade pkg. I am installing an alternator and light weight starter to take some of the weight off the nose wheel.If you have any other questions let me know. Roger
