Your Wiki host sports a fixed gear XL powered by a high-compression-IO540.
I wrote a piece for the fourth quarter 2002 Velocity Views, so check it out if you have a minute.
N44VF was damaged in an off-airport landing in Otsico, Indiana while en route to the CSA Rough River Canard Fly-in at Rough River State Park outside of Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday September 27th, 2008. Read about it here and see some pictures below.
As of late May 2010 we're back in the air. Check out our pictures below, and our second first flight videos are on YouTube (coming here soon). My recording rig is:
- Onboard video - ContourHD
- Onboard Audio - Olympus DS30 with aircraft interface
- ground camera - Crappy Sony DCR-DVD300 (new HD camera ordered)
- APRS Tracker - Byonics MicroTrak300
As of the summer 2012, we've finished our exterior finish work, having installed our Graphics vinyl , and have had a custom interior installed by David Spano, a Velocity builder and upholsterer in Chicago.
