The clan is looking at a different location for FOD next year Vern.  Maybe back to Beatrice, Neb.  Will know more as the year goes by.

 Thanks for the encouragment guys.

  Went to the airport this morning and set the prop pitch from 14.5 to
12.5.  Filled it with about 7 in the main plus the header. Reflexed the
aileron up a bit for takeoff and hit the throttle. Got in the air
quickly and stayed in ground affect and then climbed out at 110 indicated.

  Had about 5 lbs boost and climbed at 1500 fpm at around 1,000 lbs. My
speed ended up being 160 indicated at 3150 rpm. I still need a bit
finer, but I will stay with this for now.  Once I fly some more I will
set the prop to give me 3500 rpm with the waste gate off and 4,000 plus
with boost. I think my prop is a 56 inch three blade warp drive ground

  If it is nice again tomorrow I will install my rad cowl and see if I
still get the right amount of cooling and hopefully a bit more speed.

  I find the reflexor very sensitive. Tomorrow I am also going to bring
my digital smart level and lay it on the passenger consol to see if I am
close to the water line with my rigging.
