Default N829MS - SDSEFI system flys

Yesterday I took to the air for a first flight. It runs smooth and stable. I now have 4.5 hours on it. I will add the gear fairings in the next few weeks. My wife took takeoff and landing videos.

Be aware that most of the modern SDS setups are using different injectors with different flow rates in different placements and orientation from the rebranded setups. Fuel maps will not be comparable as a result.

Ignition maps won't be comparable either unless on the same engine, CR and fuel (and be sure to verify actual ignition timing and Magnet position). Some builders have found actual ignition timing has been advanced 1-3 degrees when checked from the pre-set values.
