    At last got out to the field yesterday and it was good weather sunny and not much wind and standing in the sun it was warm got 3 good flights in and then on the third flight landing the springs on the tail wheel failed. That’s ok will fix at home not a big deal will be fixed with in an hour in the shop, the plane is getting old.

    First time trying to do a glider tow. Lots to learn but we will keep at it and do this more as it was quite fun.

    I bought a AJ Raven last October. Bought a EME 70 twin for it for Xmas. Took my time putting it together, since us folks up north were caught in like the ice ages. Waited for the snow to melt and warm up. Got plane out to the field and we couldn't get the engine to do more than sputter. After a few days of trying I sent that engine back to Mile High. Well it came back to me with new rings and cylinders and a lot more compression then it had before and starts. Damn good deal for price of shipping. I got 4 flights on it Sunday. On 4th flight i went vertical and wot and I thought Yup i like it.

    How do you like the Raven? Which wings? I've heard people say it's a little on the heavier side to other 70cc birds, but it sounds like your performance is nothing short of stellar.

    I have the double taper or i think they are like wings for an Extra. I fly doing a lot of maneuvers with sorts of knife edge and slipping. It does all acrobatic stuff like on rails. Gotta tweak my CG a little, but it close. I don't have a scale, so i don't know the weight of it.

    7235147E-353E-4C0C-B84D-4AF6B5E4CC5A.jpeg Had a date with the 84” TBM and the 73” laser.... boy is she a classy act, yet a complete animal. Had a could spectators swing by, first group was amazed, asked me if I wanted their RC stuff because they don’t have the time. The second group I got to play with a bit.... he he he. Did a dolphin on take off like team EPG video I did. Ha ha ha! Got the one guy to say oh $h!t!! I just laughed. Man that made my day. He thought the plane was doomed.
