Yea so I've been slacking for a bit and my devoted followers , all three of them , have been complaining about my absence . . . . . . sheesh the things I have to do ! ! ! ! !
OK guys . . . I'll throw you a bone . . .
So there I was on a sunny Sunday a week ago making space in my tool shed to put away my snow blower . This involves chucking out most of the crap from the shed , evicting the mice that have taken up residence and rearranging all my junk to make space for the snow blower . Thrilling stuff eh ?
When I got the call to go play with the Bonanza . . . Well yea !
So I chuck all that crap back in the shed real quick and meet Clint at the airport thirty minutes later .
So we moved the plane out of the hangar so the radios could see the satellites and locate itself .
Loaded the updates in the radios , fired up the engine and got our clearance from the tower .
A quick takeoff on runway 18 puts us over Rigby Yard in South Portland .
And soon over Scarborough . . . the red arrow points at my house .
When we engage the autopilot it quickly proves it is still on the fritz . As soon as we switch it on the plane initiates a steep climb and wants to do its own aerobatic sequence . . . . Yikes that's not good . . . Switch it off . . . Electric trim is also doing what ever it wants now . . . . OK that's enough of that .
