Yesterday flew another hour in the evening. Still hot air at 1000 AGL. Temp was 85 degrees.  Was curious as to the cooling capabilities of the Rotax engine with water cooling and the oil radiator provided in the fw fwd kit.  To date noticed no problems all temps have been well within limits.  So far have 21.8 hours with no major flight glitch.  Only issues so far were the mounting spacer rubber on the gear (see blog in Matronics) - seems to be cured now with the "new design material" from Zenith.  Also still plaged with nose tire being out of round but livable.

Still Grinnin.

My front tire needed 3 ounces of sticky weights to balance, it's not hard to do and took 10 min.....Don B
