I started the day making some updates to the EAA web site. The newsletters always take me a while to copy the PDFs into HTML pages.
I tinkered around with the speedo cable on the van again. Basically, it looks like the inner is too short, and I'm not sure why that's suddenly become (more of) an issue. After playing about with it for a while, I gave up and cut about 3/8" off the end of the outer, and plugged it in again. When I went for a drive, it worked better than it ever has (it used to jiggle, which it no longer does), but a hard turn has seen it stop working, so I think it's either broken loose at the bottom, or the cable itself has snapped where I nicked it with the Dremel. Oh well...
I went to the airfield and took a lesson with Ken in the gyro. The air work was fine, but my landings still need a bit more practice, as I'm rounding out slowly like you would in a plane. Something we noticed is that he's always telling me to use more left rudder on landing, and I can never see what he's on about - well, I naturally slump to the right when I sit down, usually to take the weight of my arm off my shoulder to stop that aching so much. I can't do this in my plane, as it has a 4 point harness, but I can slump in the gyro, so that's what I'm doing. I need to practice not doing that, methinks :o)
After standing around chatting with various people, I took the Flightstar up for a bit (to finish this page in my logbook, if nothing else), then went home and watched "The Hitman's Bodyguard", where Ryan Reynolds basically plays Deadpool without a suit.
