That is very impressive progress, looks like you will be flying in just over 6 months. Not Painting was a fast forward for sure. How many are working on the plane? I think my covering and painting took me about a year. Half of the rest of my building hours were looking for the tool I just put down......

Fred,

I helped cover one wing, Chris Wallen is doing the Lions share of the work. I am amazed at how fast that young man hammers through a project. However, he is an A&P and that is his full time job. +He has another SuperSTOL build scheduled after he completes mine. I did the fabrication of the tail feathers, the Instrument Panel, Floor Boards, & air dams for the tail. I worked with him to get a better understanding of how the plane is built.

Paul

Well I’ve completed 7.2 hours only 32.8 more hours to complete the 40 Hours. The flying tail looks fracking Awsome, and it meets all of my requirements. It doesn’t wash out or loose control authority on landings (I don’t have any VGs on the Horizontal Stabilizer), it get up on the step and flys straight & level. The trim is very slight and works well. I also turned on the auto pilot and it tracked the heading I could fly it hands off for the stick with my feet on the floor and the ball stayed centered. The AP control for altitude needs to be adjusted the servo can’t seem to hold, it needs to be adjusted. Gary has been flying with me as Safety Pilot, and he was impressed with the flying tail as well.

Absolutely beautiful job, Paul! Why don't you post your video on YouTube and post the link here? We've gotta to see that fly.

I’ve posted three short videos on YouTube. Go search YouTube for: SuperSTOL XL Purple Haze. They were all posted by Paul Zimmermann.

Also, I’ve flown off 25.0 hours, 15.0 hours left to finish the mandatory 40 hours.

Nice vids, thanks for taking the time to post them. She sure looks good in flight! You're almost done 15 to go. Is it everything you thought it would be? Any problems?
