Corvair engine. I have my radio hooked up, and my wife is visible walking behind the cars with a portable radio in hand.

Hi Dan.  That's my wife walking by.  We block off the area with cars, and post either my wife or a fellow pilot nearby with a hand held radio for safety sake.  Running the engine of a polished airplane that's tied to a tree in the front yard tends to draw spectators. 


Sometimes the onlookers get really strange looks on their faces, like they don't believe what they're seeing.  Odd people around here....

Too cool, congratulations. I love the sound of a wound-up Corvair.
