Default One more finished 7A

After 3 years and 3,000 hours building a standard kit, it is finished and flies hands off with no trim tabs of any kind needed. It has an Aero Sport O-360 with 10 to 1 pistons and Light Speed ignition. The panel is all electric with a TruTrak autopilot, 2002 Advanced Engine Monitor, Nav-Head, GRT EFIS, Airspeed Indicator, Turn Coordinator, Garmin Audio Panel, Garmin 430, SL 40 radio, and a GTX 330 transponder (love the TIS). In case all goes black, backup consists of Control Vision's Anywhere Map, Anywhere Attitude and Anywhere Weather for NEXRAD downloads. I test flew it 3 months ago and used no chase plane.........none could keep up {;o)
