Since I had my engine back together and the winds were predicted to be between 0 & 2 mph, it was time to fly. Of course the winds were actually 6 mph, but that was okay too!
After one more thorough check, I was off. Takeoff went fine and other than the RPMs going over 6500, I didn't have any issues. During the flight, my EGTs were climbing higher than I wanted them to, but I didn't let them get too high. A slight adjustment and I'll be heading off for my next test flight!
Even while keeping a close eye on the guages I still had time for a few photos.
