I want to share my today experience with you!

Hi all

after several weeks of grounding due to maintenance I have performed my first flight today. It was a very
exciting expirience because I had done major intervention on the engine like crankshaft works (the first time in my life). But, I was very satisfied with the result. There are much less vibration as before. I cannot define if it is due to the crank alignment, the exhaust jointballs or the , a little bit smoother, vibration isolators I have used.
I have started with the run in, after I have done some hoovering to get confidence again and then I have made a great flight.
Fantastic machine!

Mike, great flying video. I noticed your cylinder temps got to 201 C. Thats 393 F. And your exhaust was 541C or 1005 F. Your cylinder temps seem to be high in relation to the exhaust temps. Did you do a leak test after you put the engine back together? When my cyl temps are 300 F my exhaust temps are 1050 F.  I took a pic of my screen of your temp gauge, its hard to see all the numbers clearly, they read cylinders 195,199, exhaust 545,534. The 201 C pic was taken from the Low Alt Fly video at about 4:01.

Mike, that is some impressive low altitude flying. You seem to have a lack of telephone wires in Germany. How long have you been flying your Mosquito? I'm looking into loan companies now to get one.

Missed this post earlier Mike.  Beautiful countryside and great looking flight!  Flying low is fun and exciting but always remember to honor the hv curve.  Watch out for those wind turbines!

    Mike,
I suggest you contact Wurth to find out if the Silicone product you used on the case is gas resistant. I've never heard of any silicone that was resistant to gasoline for any length of time. Permatex Grey Moto 1 is what the MZ202 case is sealed with from the factory because it is resistant to gasoline. Also if you haven't done it yet I suggest you pressure test the engine for air leaks. The Mosquito I bought had a case leak that caused one cylinder to run hot 450*, it ended up seizing up. I was at 15 feet when it happened. The piston had a hole in it from the case leak causing it to burn to lean. If while flying your cylinder temp of 201 C spikes up to 260 C you won't have enough time to get down before the piston seizes into the cylinder.
