    Not bad Earle, working a lot, spent all of last year on a kitchen project, playing some music here and there.......and finally back in thee shop working on stuff.

    That Extra is really really really nice :) Did you buy it like that or did you spruce it up after you got it?

    How's that puppy doing?

    @Bartman .....good to hear! I bought it used and it was already covered in that scheme (I really like BTW). I just added my equipment and blinged it out a bit with the pilot, panel back and some pinstriping.

    Shelby is doing great. Wonderful dog, smart, easy to train, loves our granddaughters and loves to travel....can't ask for much more than that.

    We need to get together and fly when the weather breaks!

    I was thinking the same thing Earle...... :shake:......the club moved to a new spot on the same property where we flew the Super Cub. There's one spot where you can fly facing North with about 900 yds end to end, I went out there a couple of weeks ago and thought it's got to be enough for your IMAC practice flights. I made due with a Goldberg .40 Cub.

    We'll have you out again when the weather breaks.

    After having run DA150's and 170's I have finally jumped on the 4-cylinder bandwagon. Got a great deal on an overhauled DA200L while I was at the IMAC Worlds in Sept.

    No excuses now....:confused:

    Man long time no see! Glad you popped in.
    I don't own a DA200, but I've flown one many times and just love the smooth power.

    Thanks...yes, it's been awhile. Planning on getting back to my 35% Krill in a bit. Hope to finally finish her this winter.

    As a followup to all that machining on the aluminum standoff......I finally had to remove it and replace with a hardwood (walnut) block. With the 170 sympathetic vibrations causes major harmonic vibrations and destroyed (cracked) TWO canopies....UGH! That solved the problem, although I did get tired of building canopies.

    When I showed the aluminum standoff to a machinist friend, his first words were "Where's the webbing?!" Seems I got carried away in the milling :(. Live and learn.

    Ultimately the DA200L will be a MUCH smoother ride!!! :dancing-chicken:
