Darryl Greenamyer Flies The LT-1

Darryl Greenamyer took his turn at the stick and rudders of the LT-1 today, making it’s second and third test flights. The good news… our overheating problem has been overcome with modifications to the carburetor. The less than good news, but not horrible news? It might be running a little rich now. Ah, the joy of aircraft engines… more meddling tomorrow. After his first flight Darryl quipped, “I hate to say this in front of Andy, but that thing flies nice.”

My good friend Richard, who originally got me into experimental aircraft (although I’m still not sure if I should thank him or curse him) also paid us a visit, flying out to Thermal in his KR-1. This plane was a big insparation for me as a kid. It’s fast: 230mph on 120hp.

    Hi there
    I would consider myself an expert with composites, but you have done such a little jewel very well balanced, weight-aerodynamic-engine.
    Keep going ahead. I will follow your developments.
    Do you have a mailing list? I would like to be in such a list as I am interested in your airplane.
    Thanks
