274 Simms

This was the first morning flight of the season

I left the buggy on the truck last night and so it was easy to hop out of bed and get out to the field. Conditions were great, a light breeze out of the SSW and 45 degrees. Takeoff was noticeably easier with the higher density air. To help the buggy get started I laid the ramps under the back wheels and it worked just fine. I climbed 1500 AGL and did a little exploring.

The only glitch was that the throttle cable tip got caught behind the idle stop and I had to force the lever back to get it to idle. This was fixed by putting a cord stop on the end of the throttle problem!
