It seems gas prices only go down AFTER I have recently bought gas. Not that I'm complaining...it's going in the right direction.


I don't think the minor rubbing between the plenum and the upper cowl is a big deal. Over 1.4 hours with the new configuration, the rubbing is minimal. I put some rubber weatherstripping material on top of the plenum to keep the rubbing down. I will check this out in a few hours to see how it is doing.


I noticed my canopy has been difficult to close, and I have a very annoying whistling noise occurring in the cabin. While closing the canopy today, I noticed the canopy was rubbing on the rear edge. I sanded it down and got the fit a little better. I will see if this fixes the issues.


Finally, I installed a USB power socket on the bottom of the subpanel. The 1.0 Amp output will power the ADS-B receiver. The 2.0 Amp output will power the iPad and/or charge my cell phone in flight. This location is pretty accessible in flight if I need to swap out USB powered items.
