The waiting must be killing you Oliver, and the guys causing the delay does not realize your snow winter is creeping closer.

Nope, Huge. We do have the permit to fly in Germany, but we decided to keep her a little bit longer in SA. And we already have the short days and the bad autumn weather here. Stefan is tuning her to be one of kind of a performer and to be a show peace for the Aero 2019 fair at Friedrichshafen. Therefore, we probably let her enjoy the SA summer a little bit longer. :D
To invent an airplane is nothing. To build one is something. But to fly is everything.

After the balancing some picnic. 0.06 imps on the tail rotor. 0.2 is the manual limit, not to shabby. 0.1 would be 100% better. 0.06 ?% better?
