Love the paint and you nailed that landing! You do any transition training?

Looks great! Nice strip too.

Please report the tuning and other particulars on the SDS system when you get a chance.

I keep my CFI, but I really don't use it. I flew the factory -14 with Mike Seager back in September. He is a very good instructor.

I have my ignition set up to simulate a magneto currently. Once the rings are seated I plan to play with the ignition timing and compare that to the baseline I'm getting now.

For the fuel map, I have 500 - 1500RPM set at an AFR between 12 and 12.5 then 1600 - 2700RPM between 11.5 and 12. I only have 4.5 hours on the engine so I do not yet have much experience with the system, but I do like what I've seen so far!

I think I have the ignition side pretty well figured out, so once you are comfortable feel free to give me a shout. As for the fuel side, I'm some months away from flying, so I'm going to be leaning on you guys for guidance when the time comes.

I'm guessing you are using the integrated fuel flow function? If so, how's that working out?

I saved a copy of your ignition info from a previous post and plan to follow your lead. I do intend to publish all my number for an IO-390 after the tweaking is done. I will run them by Ross and Barry first so I don't lead anybody off the path. If you don't have SDSDASH get it, it is great for looking at the numbers after a flight.

For those not familiar, SDSDASH is the optional PC data logging feature we offer. It's been very helpful to assist customers with tuning or running issues. You can email the file to us for advice. We can quickly spot many problems and give you feedback on how to fix them. Great diagnostic tool.

Dave Anders has used it a lot in combination with Savvy during his test flying. We've improved the software many times now, adding features based on customer feedback. You can download the latest version any time after you've purchased this initially. We have some future ideas to improve ease of use next year when we get time to work on it in depth.

Welcome to the 14 club. You will fall more in love with her the more you fly her.
