    Default Hoot flys September Fury yesterday at Chino!

    On my return trip from Costa Rica (work related) my mom sends me a text msg "we are at Chino". A few minutes later I get another text with this picture, saying Hoot is takin her up for his first flight, after Steve has put about 8 hrs on her.

    Dad says she sounds and looks great!

    We heading for Reno tomorrow!

    See you all there, drop by the NAG Express office or look for us in the package delivery cart!!

    Does September Fury still have the clipped wings? or did they take them off?
    My heart starts beating again in September.

    Non clipped wings.

    That should help. I swear the plane slowed way down around the course after they put the clipped wings on.

    I have definitely missed the sound of that bird racing. It has a very unique sound. I wonder if the fuel injection system has anything to do with that?prop?exhaust? Just sounds unique.

    I think the sound is because of the "slow nose" on the engine. Rare Bear has a similar sound. The other 3350s sound as if prop rpm is heading toward supersonic at the tips.
