I don't recall where I got my internal stop, but it is made of UHMW plastic, not nylon. Just looked at it yesterday as part of my condition inspection. Some light marking at contact points, but no physical change.

Default Back in the Air

Its been a month and a half since the condition was signed off, but I've finally got the post condition gremlins solved.

1- The moving clamp fix required a modification to the intercooler inlets and one of the induction pipes
.

The top pipe is the new version-a "slightly" more aggressive grip range.

2- RPM sensor replaced and it's reading is now very stable.

3- Oil Temp sensor connection replaced and know works good-no more 350F readings.

4- G3X EMS intermittent because of a loose CAN bus shield solder joint.


So after two short test flights to verify everything was good, it was time to stretch her wings. Left KFFC early morning May 3 nonstop to KAVO (Avon Park,FL) for a freight drop to mom. Left there after a short stay for a quick flight to X35 to top the tanks ($2.89/gal) and then back to Falcon.

Started the day with 43 gallons. Took on 56.3 at Marion County and arrived back at Falcon Field with 58 Gallons remaining.

Total burn--approx. 41 gal.
Hobbs time--5.7 hrs
TAS 155Kts
Distance 760nm
