Plane is now located in Owensboro, KY. I have since added a brittian autopilot with tracking and heading bug. A K&N airfilter, wing root fairings, LED landing light, dynamicly balanced the prop, and new articifical horizon. It got a new DG with the autopilot install. I installed a JPI 730 with fuel flow. Great airplane.
