    That's a great point. I'm probably overthinking the cooling issue. I'll try it as is and see if there's a problem.

    Little bit of paint today. I spilled the paint not once but twice![​IMG]

    Trim is done. The paint shows every single brush line on the wings. I have to decide if I want to redo them now or later.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Windows are installed and it actually fits in the trailer with the center section attached!! I will have to decide if I want to transport it this way, with support for the booms, of course.[​IMG]

    First trip to the flying field today for taxi testing, range check, fail safe testing, and overall evaluation of suitability for flight. Lots of issues with the nose gear. Lots of slop and loose bolts. Tightened one area and another gets loose. Eventually I got it mostly cinched up.

    One looming issue is that one flap has more travel than the others but shares a channel with another. Working on that. After I have it resolved, It will be airworthy.

    If anyone wants to see the taxi tests, I'll post a video.[​IMG]

    Do you really have to ask plane junkies like us we all want to see everything, thanks.
