    Well. Here in Iceland is kind a off season now and the time is used to do the check on my Kitfox.
    Here I will put in four videos of it where I fly. Th first one is from our club airstrip in Iceland. It was shoot early 2013 when we got unexpected chopper to visit us.

    The next one is taken from my KitFox when I flew around our airstrip in Mars 2013. On sunny day it can be a little bumpy ride flying over that lava we have there all around.

    Next is Kitfox takeoff at Sléttan. Like you can hear then is the engine not running smooth but it has been fixed now. That is my baby.

    And the last one is when My Foxy Kit landed at Kerlingafjöll in the Icelandic wilderness.

    Nice! My wife used to get fuel in Keflavik a couple times a month and always wanted to explore there. We are planning on heading there in the next 12 months or so. Maybe we can grab a beer.

    Just let me know Esser and I would like to grab some beer with you and give you few hints what to explore her in Iceland. And of course check out the airstrip Sléttan that we have for our ultralight aircraft. If your wife has been here anytime last 20 years she might have seen the airstrip from above (It is not the old airport that is close to Keflavik airport.)

    Great photos Scott. Beautiful scenery. Rugged and gorgeous, just like your Kitfox.

    I will be 7 Super Sport building tomorrow. Thanks for the boost.

    I got lucky and flew in a different area with a fellow forum member KitFox2009. Don flys a Model V in the Penticton area of western Canada. Thanks Don for a great ride in an amazing airplane. Don's Model V sports a 912UL 80HP and boasts spectacular performance thanks to an IVO in flight adjustable prop. Don says when he switched from the GSC prop to the IVO C-FOXK became a whole new airplane. Take-off is brisk and when the prop is set for cruise the airspeed jumps to 117mph at 5200 rpm. Previously this was a 100mph airplane.
    I have a 912UL with the same IVO in flight adjustable prop for my Model IV. I hope my performance is similar.
    As with all 912's I can't believe how smooth the motor and plane combination is. By the way fuel burn is only 15 litres an hour. Little more than 3 Imp gals an hour or less than 4US gal an hour. Pretty reasonable cost of operation.

    Hey Norm. Fun day for you and Don. Don has a very sweet Vixen.
    He is doing real well on 80 hp.
    You will be happy with your prop engine combo Norm.

    Nice Pictures, Scott. Stunning area and it is a good match for your stunning Kitfox. The cub guys with you must always be jealous....

    The picture labelled, "Chuckar Flats" looks like it had a couple of landing possibilities in it? How long and smooth were those gravel bars? Was the grassy patch on the right, rough?

    I'm just quizzy.

    Regards
    Reid
