Finally flew N188LC today after spending 10 hours with Mike Seager.. Zero issues to report other than it took me 3 tries to get a sqeaker wheel landing.. Even with 40 pounds of weight in the aft baggage area, the elevator pressure was considerably higher than the RV-7 I flew with Mike. Mine is a 180hp, FP setup, and Mike's is 160hp and CS.. the difference in acceleration on takeoff, and deceleration into the approach was large enough that I'm considering a CS prop as my next mod to the airplane. I really enjoyed the fine control of the CS vs the FP, although once I got into the groove (85 mph IAS) of the approach it wasn't any different.
Taxi back to the hangar was fun with the big RV grin on my face..
