More progress. Still needs the seats, horiz stab, engine cover, prop, rotorblades. And a few more items.

We hope to have the Xenon ready in time for Oshkosh. After today I'm sure it will be ready to go.
Rob admiring the craftsmanship. Just noticed Rob posted at; http://www.rotaryforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13416

This red one and a second one were ordered long before you were in Australia. Maybe they were in composite layup or painting when you were there.

Rob: Looking nice there guy. I wish you the best. You have a very nice turn key gyro and there has to be a lot of clients out there that do not want to build their own. Theres those that want to build and those that dont....we can cover both ends of the spectrum with our respective makes...
Looking forward to sitting down with some steaks before us at Mentone..along with my other gyro buddies...:whoo:

The Red color and black leather seats are really cool looking.
See ya soon. And this year hopefully you can stay the whole week with no torndoes, windstorms, volcanoes, or earthquakes.

Not really an intercooler on the RST but so far no problems with airbox temps.
Flying it is amazing.
In the black machine we would use 4500 rpm on base leg and final for a 500 fpm descent.
In the red machine we are climbing out at 4500 rpm and going up at 500fpm.
After you come off the ground you can pitch up to a scary attitude and it will still both climb and accelerate. And it is really quiet.
Still need to change the prop pitch. On the black machine we are at aobut 12.5 degrees- Raphael said his turbo after it is broken is using 16 degrees. I tried that but it is a bit to much for the new engine and we were not getting full rpm. Mostly we were using about 4000-4500.

Are you asking if we would take your RAF in on trade?
