Amy finally got her ride in the 10 this past weekend. It was her birthday and she wanted to go to the San Juan islands for the day so I had a goal to meet in getting phase 1 complete in time. I met it but only just...if you look at the picture below Amy is actually sitting in the passenger seat (in the reflection) when I took the picture of the Hobbs meter. :-)
One of the biggest projects I ended up with was moving the backup battery off of the firewall and back to the tail cone to sit beside the main battery. It was just too hot under the cowl for that battery. It has a temperature sensor that was alerting during flights longer than about 15-20 minutes. So I decided to move the battery aft. That took a lot of time but it was worth it. It also helped my CG just a little.
