Brief Description:  Installed stick boots and oil cooler baffle

Oil temperatures seen during test flights were within specification but a tad higher than I would like. Thinking that the air from the front cowl opening and the air from the hole cut in the cowl under and in front of the cooler might be creating a situation in which there isn't any or little pressure differential across the cooler might be contributing to poor cooling capacity. So, a baffle that keeps out air sourced at the front of the round cowl was installed. This did work - the temps are still higher than I would like but they are easily kept in check now.

Also, added the boots to the control sticks.
