Steve owns an electric Telsa, which he ran me down the taxiway at maximum acceleration, something like 0-60 in 3 seconds. Since we are building the electric PhoEnix, we introduced the Tesla to the Phoenix so they could discuss the future of electric power.
Ed Babovec is taking good care of me with a wonderful house and runway in Longmont, CO just down the street from our operating base at Erie. This photo shows his backyard.
Ed's wife Cheryl and I had a great flight together. I was about to land but she wasn't quite ready so we climbed back up and stayed aloft for a while longer. Cheryl will be happy to discuss the Phoenix with any wives out there, but Ed says to talk to him first.
Graham and I found some patchy lift way up in the mountains, and explored strange clouds to see if there was lift under them, something not possible in a pure glider.
