Eight airplanes racing head to head around telephone poles in the desert. Mojave is the best place on the planet to build and modify a race plane, and Wasabi is lucky to have the best support in the business.

Recent Long EZ test work

A couple pictures associated with some contract flight test Wasabi did here at Mojave.  The point of interest is an aft facing sugar scoop for a 235 Long EZ oil cooler.  The main interest for Wasabi in the test was the opportunity to try some new test equipment, specifically a new camera and of course share some of the data with you!

A stilll from the video, before engine start.

After the flight the tufts were pretty abused (camera performed flawlessly).

More unhappy tufts.
