Today was the big day, with a nice calm morning after a few windy days.
Getting ready, in a borrowed hangar with less taxi distance -
It takes off - lift the nose slightly and up it went at a DA of 4000 ft -
And the required (and long awaited) grin after -
No big surprises but some radio problems.
1. Com #2, the Apollo GX65, squealed.
2. Com #1, Skyview had a loose knob on the frequency select.
And a high CHT on take off and climb which will hopefully go down a bit as the rings are seated.
No big deal, I just stayed on the Multicom frequency, the first issue I think is an internal preset setting needed for the mic. gain, and the second is fixed with a small allen key.
