After 6+ years of somewhat part-time building and 1750 hours, I first flew my completed not-so-quick-build Rans S6S on July 15, 2013. It’s powered by a Rotax 912ULS with a 3-blade Warp Drive prop. The panel is basic steam gauges, (I am old fashioned) with a Dynon D10A EFIS, Icom radio, Garmin transponder and Aera GPS as a glove box door. I have installed a few extras like an electric boost pump, Andair fuel shutoff and brass and glass fuel gauges.
N510BH (Beehoon) is a dream to fly and I appreciate the advice and inputs of DAR L.L. Farrand, recipient of the EAA “Tony Bingelis” award for 2013.
The greatest joy to me was designing and building the electrical system. My thanks go out to the EAA staff and Tech Counselors who answered various and I am sure, redundant questions.
