May 1st

A new month, so here are the solar stats:

I screwed around all morning playing Warcraft and suchlike, and tried to get a pressure washer I bought to work.  It didn't, so I went to the airfield to tinker with the plane.  I've been thinking that the airspeed indicator is over-reading, and that's since I put the static line in, so I unplugged that.  I also tried to get the nosewheel centered when the rudder pedals are level.  The thing is, usually you'd turn the rods and one end would have left handed threads, so you'd make the rods longer or shorter as required.  Not here though, they're both right handed threads on both ends, so all I did was move the rods.  I'll need to take one end off, then loosen / tighten the fittings.  Bugger.

After struggling to get the plane out (the glider is in the wrong place, so I couldn't open the doors all the way without moving the glider) I took off, and the airspeed indicator was all over the place.  It was a bit bouncy, and once in the air I could see all the weather coming towards the airport, so I just did the one circuit, plugged the static line back in and put everything away.
