Brief Description:  Wig-wag, trim, flap setup, brake line work

Worked out the fuel computer mis-match issue. I forgot to tell the computer I had added 16 gallons of fuel-duh! Today, I got trim indicator set up in Skyview. I set takeoff at neutral position—may change later. I also configured the flaps, but they don’t display on the Skyview because I didn’t install a flap position potentionmeter—so, I marked a line on the flaps at several different points. I used a blue sharpie, so I can remove with MEK and change it after some flight time to determine various approach settings. I also setup the VP-X to wig-wag the landing and taxi lights. I set them for steady on above 100 knots and to wig-wag when slower. Again, one of those items that may be changed after some flight time, but at least I have a starting point. My flexible brake lines from the bottom of the gear to the brake caliper needed some kind of restraint to keep them from maybe flopping against the tire, so I drilled a small hole in the forward pant mounting bracket. I split some vinyl tubing, wrapped it around the line a looped some safety around and back thru the hole to secure the brake line to the fairing bracket. My to-do list is slowly winding down—hope to call for an inspection in a week or two.
