We are still wainting for the weather to improve to make the first flight. Withe Sabine we spent one hour at the hangar, mainly to fill up the fuel tanks as the airclub was open today. I still have no card for the automatic pump.
Sabine taxied in the plane for the first time, and after taht we noticed some oily residue on the front leg. We took the cowling of and there must have been some oil or fuel in the airbox. We will monitor that.

Today I installes the engine cowls and taxied with everything buttoned up. I found the plane wants to turn left, I couldnot troubleshoot but think it has to do with the braking system.
I also have a problem with the throttle throaw as I don't have enough throw to go from the idle to full power stops.
The good news is that everything seems to be working with the cowls on.

Today I began by reinstalling the fairings and covers after the inspection. I alos corrected the small discrepancies that had be noted.
I managed to do the first taxi. The engine started flawlessly and taxying was straightforward. Turning is possible with a smal radius and at low speed.
Video is unfortunately usable.
