Phase II flight testing–8.4 hours

Flew for about an hour and a half today.  Mostly just pattern work.  I can’t believe how much the RV-4 spoiled me.  I have no problem with directional control, the problem is with the landing flare.  I keep flaring way too high.  Today I wore my old glasses and landings were much better.  These glasses will now live in the airplane.  I was able to make 10 landings, 9 of which were very good.  Still not landing at the top of my game but they are survivable.  I was going to continue until I started coming down with the flu (yeah, it came on quick) so I quit for the day.  On the bright side there were now squawks today.
