First Flight: Cozy MKIV Plans #656

Recommended Posts

After 9 years of building, mostly one full day per week, Cozy MKIV plans #656 took to the sky for the first time. The maiden flight was made by owner Thane Ostroth on 6/21/08 from Pontiac Oakland Airport here in Michigan. It was an uneventfull flight according to Thane. Cylinder #2 temps dropped slowly and pretty much stopped firing after climb out and the pitch trim decided to stop working also. The problem with cylinder #2 turned out to be a clogged fuel injector (Superior IO-360) and the pitch trim (Strong) is binding up. 2.5 hours so far into Phase 1 flight testing and we work on the problems as they come up.

Now think about it...wouldn't you rather LIVE your life, rather than watch someone else's, on Reality T.V.?

Get up off that couch!!! =)
