Brief Description:  Final Details

Since the plane moved to the hangar I have made a few trips out to finish off some final details and do a little fast taxiing. I go the fuel lines installed, put weatherstripping around the doors, finished the weight and balance and started fine tuning my prop pitch.

In order to fine tune the prop I got to do a little fast taxiing...very exciting! The propeller needs to be set so that at full power while doing a run up the engine pulls about 5000 rpm. This should equate to a full power rpm setting of nearly 5800 rpm at speed. To hit the sweet spot I pitched the prop to 10 degrees and safety wired it.

I also did some nose high engine runs to make sure that I got fuel flow in a climb attitude. To do this I tied the tail to the ground using a concrete anchor that happened to be in the hangar. No problems found.
