@*% SHA - ZZAAM!!

%#@ Ka - POOWWWW!! *($#*

$%@Wham - O!! @$%!


Freakin' rocketship.

If you lay into the throttle hard at 60, the numbers roll up so fast on the GPS that your eyes can't register anything until around 88. Even then, they're just a blur.

We've still got air in the hydraulics, both steering and trim. It was passing through 5400 rpm when it started hopping and we shut it down. The GPS tell-tale now reads....




100.

Screwed up with the GoPro, so we only have this still instead of video. The roostertail was "significant".

I am a VERY HAPPY CAMPER.

Thanks for the kind words. I'll remember those when it comes time to send out your props. How 'bout I send them back out of the boxes? I'll just slap an address label on them and send them via bulk rate Yellow Freight with a loose load of scrap iron castings?

The protective film is staying on the H/E and manifold until we're completely done. Gotta keep it shiney!
