Now have flown off the forty hour Phase One Testing. All in all a very benign experience. No real supprises except for the first couple of takeoffs being soooo quick.
Also have done first condition inspection and the Rotax 25 hour checks (100 hour check) with no problems.
Experienced no cooling problems with temps this summer in OATs as high as 98 F. Engine is Rotax 912ULS with Zenith FWF kit.
Have installed the Zenith VG's and have plenty of elevator authority. My suggestion is to install these if you have not done so.
Have the usual rudder heavyness that has been brought up before and the usual low speed buffet over the top of the fuselage. Plan to play around with these issues this winter and will keep all informed.
Bottom line, really a lot of fun for your money.
