It has been a while since I had anything I could write about; the last few customer's projects were proprietory. I have used my recent spare time for making several new paintings, which you can see on my "Paintings" page, and a few small projects for myself.
This one is a small foldable dolly which I plan on using at the airport to move heavy items like tool boxes and those gas cans with unleaded auto gas for my planes. The handle is from an electric weed eater which I fried last year, it was not up to the size of my yard.
After returning again to Sumperk, CZ, for the fourth time this year, I was able to complete the ASTM certification flight tests for Flight Design's new F2 LSA. Flight test in Europe in winter is a major challenge because of the weather, and I spent more days on the ground than flying. But we got lucky and had at least a few beautiful days which allowed me to fly high enough to do the flutter and final spin resistance tests. The airplane performed very well, and no modifications beyond some stall strip adjustments were needed.
The final Red Bull Air Race is finished and Yoshi Muroya won the race, which took place in his home country Japan. After winning 3 of the 4 races this year, our team ended up only one point behind the 2019 season's winner, Matt Hall. Of the 14 pilots, Matt is the one to whom this win matters the most, so I am happy with this outcome.
