FLIGHT NOTES: Testing new fuel flow gauge. Thanks Ashley W. Climb 4k - 10k 86GPH. 67 GPH @ CRS 155 KIAS 10,000ft. 62 GPH @ CRS 152 KIAS 10,000ft. HaHaHa, gauge shows I used 992 gallons 2 hours into flight. I only started 349 gal.! I guess I keep looking - thanks for trying Ashley! I have yet to learn when, how & why for prop control setting. No body teach me that. Have a Froggie Hoppin Day!

FLIGHT NOTES: Good Flt with perfect WX and clouds. As always I use real weather settings. I do need help with learning about when/how to use Prop position & Mix levers. I just leave them high but want to find a way for better speed at CRS with less fuel burn. The lessons and my Machado Handbook don't really explain it to me. * WIIB is substitute for WICC which is not in fs9. **WRSJ s substitute for WARR which is not in fs9. Original Arpt's. of 1937 either no longer exist or ICAO has changed. The closest airport to the original coorinates are always use.

FLIGHT NOTES: A bit slow and heavy with the fuel load, but not taking a chance of running out. Off work so I got the time. 280nm out Hdg 058 w/ 21nmh xwinds from 266 - A little bouncy. Briefly lost all electrical mid-flt. but was able to maintain and control. Cause was thinking I was in Comm mode, and killed all power texting! NTSB Reports: PILOT ERROR. I did good though, only lost 1,200 feet and kept the bird stable for restart. Fun Flight! The cross winds at destination darn near crashed me. Very sloppy landing but was able to save face! That's how it goes when using real weather. A fun flight and once again had MAX710 with me! There were about 8 people on HopTo server when I logged off - that's very good! Fun morning.
