OK, Mack, now you got me curious.  Sounds like you figured out the polishing, and have some yellow.  Any pictures....?

Mack, I was just about to close the hangar door and start my 10 hour drive back. You said you wanted a picture ...... Now that I'm flying, decided it was time to keep the dust off the airplane. Three 9x12 drop cloths work well.

Hi Mack
Thanks for your comment on N620RH
I finished on 4/17/10 (a lot of work!)
Did it all in my hangar in Chico with a helper part time. No Doug. Although he did come by one day & gave me the thumbs up.
Good luck Mack

Hello Mack,

Thanks for commenting on the pictures.

The salt flats were fun. The 701 and the Challenger got low enough to touch their wheels in the sand/salt. I don’t do those tricks in my 601. I took movies & pictures of them doing it though.

The weather was good. We had a high cloud layer which kept me from baking in my 601 toaster oven. Some of the pictures were a bit dull without the direct sun though.

My plane’s tail feathers are indeed fixed thanks to Doug Dugger at Quality Sport Planes in Cloverdale.

Hello Mack,

I hope your doing well.

This picture you commented on was taken by Alan from his plane. The mountain is Mt. Rainier which is 14,411 feet. He considered buzzing the guys on top but thought better of it, to give them the solitude they earned the hard way.

Hello Mack,

How are you doing? Are you flying that thing or just looking at it? Have you started the upgrade?

Regarding my trip down the coast, there was lots of moisture in the air so the skies were hazy in places but never anything close to IFR.

The flight took 4.5 hours. By car the trip would have been about 10 hours. Route 1 down the coast is beautiful but very curvy. The view from my Zodiac was spectacular as always.

Take care, Steve

We fly high as well... we just don't have any mountains to look at when we do it. The camera is a Canon 700 Zoom something or other. It was handheld for the video. I could shout over the engine noise into the open mic or perhaps patch the intercom into it and record the sidetone conversation. I had not thought about it until you asked. Thanks for the interest and the feedback.

Mack, the total weight of both canopy moldings is 2 pounds, but the weatherstipping is at least 8oz plus glue, and I didn't use the front metal flashing. So, what is the actual weight gain after I trim, more like a 1 pound gain, but I will have a near perfect canopy seal.

I should have used carbon fiber, might save 8-10oz

Thanks Mack. We stopped training in the 601XL after the NTSB letter, but will be back doing limited "insurance" checkouts on a "consultation" basis starting in September 2009. Those builders who need the experience can still get it then. Call Dragonfly and talk to Chad or me.
