Default Flight #12 and wheel pans on!

She looks great. How'd the speed pick up with the pants on?

Out of curiosity, how are you managing the engine break-in along with the phase 1 testing?

It feels a lot faster

Seriously, I didn't closely compare. I am, however, working on a wheel pant induced trim issue right now.

I just maintained the power at 25/25 for the first 5 hours, now varying between 23/23 and 25/25 for cruising and ops. My oil temps are dropping as expected.
