January 21st

We ran (and passed) all the tests for the cruise control, so then tightened up the slack in the cable.  It didn't help.  I played with the settings, and went for a few test drives but haven't changed anything, so I've decided to leave it for the moment.

I spoke to Vince in the evening, and the Flightstar's all back together - I just need to go and add gas and go flying.  I was confused at first, as I was sure there was about half a tank in the plane, but he's used that all up running it in.  It seems the problem was the crank seals, and the mark I was looking at on the barrel wasn't a seizure, rather the piston ring gap marking the wall.  Joy.
