Brief Description:  Idle circuit adjustments and taxi test

Noted that the engine did not want to idle with the out of the box setup (servo was never run with the engine)

Proceeded with set of idle circuit tests: lean the engine with the red knob and lower RPM; leaner was better. Iterated the adjustment of the idle arm on the servo and noted performance (6 clicks, 9 clicks, 11 clicks leander than original setup). Idle improved and the engine seems to give the 50 rpm rise when moved to ICO.

Still need to adjust the idle RPM; might be a bit low. (500 ish)

Was able to taxi the aircraft and condition the brakes. Taxi to the fuel island and around the airport. I was the only one moving on the field.
