2 days till the Sky Hawks’ Dawn Patrol

Still a bunch of little details to get taken care of, but I think we will be ready for this weekend’s Dawn Patrol event on Long Island at the Sky Hawk’s amazing flying field. I even dusted off my leather flying helmet and goggles!

I just installed (reinstalled) the engine in the Fokker Triplane and secured the throttle linkage. Zenoah GT80 engine on Ziroli Soft-mounts.

Tonight, will button up the radio gear, install a plywood plate in the canopy for the radio switch and engine kill switch.

Then, CHECK THE BALANCE POINT!
