It has been a challenge to keep up with all the goings on regards the move, settling down and completing a ton of various projects as well as wrestling with tow flying machines.

I have had a problem with the Verner 3V on ORV, but have made changes and fixed the loss of compression problem except my fuel tank has started leaking very badly resulting in need to build new take, it shoud completed and flight tested by next week end. SR 7-1/2 has had a leak in the fuel tank for some time but it was under control until recently when the JB Weld started leaking. I have drained the fuel and repaired the tank again with another JB weld project called tank repair, it does not seem to harden but is sealing the leak. I can again fly Legal Eagle XL SR 7-1/2 when ever I want to. Looking forward to be in Reklaw with SR 7-1/2.

Another item learned on my move from California to Texas

Making the move has been a learning curve and one area that I have had help in is in health care, I have had Kaiser Permenante for a lot of years in California but here in Texas they do not provide cover for this state. Jessica Rosette with Rosette Health Insurance Advisors has been a big help and has taken care of getting me set up.

If you have health insurance questions or concerns contact Jessica at 209-499-7530 or email: I can highly recommend her.

Up date on move to Texas

Moving has taken a considerable amount of time, more than I ever imagined, my flying and building is way behind. I have not been able to post videos or update the blog very often. Just getting where i can fly, some other things that has slowed me down is the loss of compression issue with the Verner 3V, finally have it identified and eliminated but having problems with a leaky fuel tank, new tank is almost completed. Been flying SR 7-1/2 and enjoying it. It seems to be holding up and performing great, I have been busy completing the hanger and house and just completed the drive ways so maybe more time can be dedicated to updating blog and videos. Another minor problem is there is not internet here, have to use wifi hot spots and to upload videos have to drive about 3 miles to get closer to the verizon tower. Flying is great, just beginning to enjoy it. More to come.

Fuel tanks

Had a great flight tonight in Snoopy’s Revenge but i have a leak in the fuel tank that needs to be fixed and the fuel tank on ORV is beyond repair. Getting ready to build some new fuel tanks. The fuel tanks were made of .032 5005, new tanks will be either .040 or .050. I want to save the weight but i do believe life safety may need to come first.

Flew for .7 this evening, no bumps or wind what so ever. Beautiful country to explore.
