Test flights : 5th and 6th flight
le 11-02-2012 19:10:00 (2304 lectures)

Temperatures are too low to work in the hangar, but the weather is sunny so I went flying. I managed to make two one hour flight. Still the same problems : the OAT not working and the VOR reception being lower than expected.
For the second flight I made some go-arounds, some touch and gos, tested half flap landings. On the last  landing, ths flaps got stuck due to a blown fuse. This is a known problem, I replaced  the the 5A fuse with  7,5A.

Today, with Sabien we stayed a ggod part of the day at the hangar. We reinstalled the OAT probe. It worked for part of the flight but the stopped giving valid indications, some more troubleshooting to do.
During the flight I noted that the VOR was working, I made some performance measures and opened the speed range. I could fly at 50 KIAS without stalling and the throttled up to 164 KIAS. I made two landings. I lowered the approach speed for the seconf landing but I'm not really convinced.

Just before Christmas I managed to perform a third flight. I checked the speed indication which are precise enough to go on with further expanding the flight enveloppe. I have the OAT not working and no reception on the VOR, I'll have to troubleshoot this before next flight.
This is a short video of the take-off

Test flights : Second flight

Today I flew almost one hour still checking engine reliability and handling. I did some slow flight but no stalls. I checked the systems and fousn a few small problems, not affecting the flying capacities.
I finished the flight with a touch and go, so two landings today.
This is the Google Earth trace of the flight
