Congratulations on the new plane Chris! It's going to keep you busy and occupied for a long time which is a good thing.
You mentioned stiff controls. I had the same issue with my plane. Something that is probably overlooked in most annuals is disassembly, cleaning and lubricating the three nylon roller bushings for the control column. It's easy to do and made a big improvement in control resistance and smoothness. You might want to put that on the "to do" list.

Congratulations! Enjoy your "new" airplane. I can't wait to hear about the adventures you experience and the places it takes you.

+1 This is easy to do sitting right in the front seat, remove the collar screws and pull it back, support the column, lube the rollers and put it back in. She’ll glide like butter unless you also have some sticky cable pulleys, or the rollers are stuck and have flat spots.

OUTSTANDING INFO Fellas, thank you, that's what I planned to do, was get into the nylon bushings, I figure they're a mess.....

BREAKING UPDATE.......
I have figured out that I will have 1/10th of the time I know I needed to do all of this stuff on this plane this year....sp the plan has been dialed back, mightily.

This weekend, I removed the collar with the 3 rollers on it & replaced it with the one out of my other Bonanza, plus greased the fittings in the front of the column, now it slides in & out easy, like it's supposed to. Removed a Loran, a DME & (2) VOR' displays, got one KX 170B working....replaced some of the screws in the wings that were rusty, cleaned & replaced the positive battery cable off of the battery...tomorrow with any luck I top it off, get the radios working (in my headset as well as on the speaker); figure out how to set the FS 450 to full....and go fly it!

I did fly it last weekend, just shortly; I set the nose up trim higher this time, and there was a little bit of wind, 10-12 MPH or so. I think it came off the ground in a couple of hundred feet, rate of climb was just impressive, scared me a little, I lowered the nose by getting rid of power....for now, guys; my plane is an UGLY beast....bad uniform; great heart. :cheers:

We used to call those sleepers with big motors and plain looks. Time to go enjoy it in the warmer wx. Winter is for mod time.

Flew it again today.....had to find out how much different it flew with a stick that doesn't stay there when you let go of it..... :coffee:

175 MPH IAS today at 4500 feet & 10.4 GPH. (Nothing scientific about this yet, steam gauges etc.)

In Eastern Washington, it is a stick that stays. In Idaho, it is referred to as an autopilot.

Enjoy the speed, I’m in awe at 150 knots all day long. I gave up pissing matches, go have fun. See you in June if I can get the Bo up there.
:cheers:

Meh; I've been in & out of pissing matches..... :lol:

My K-35, I wanted that fast...paid for it, and it was fast.

My E-35, for an E-225 powered bird, was also fast....

But I saw a 2,000 FPM VSI get pegged today on (shortly after?) takeoff.

It was cool. :tape:

It's coming, Tracy.

Right now, I'd like to have a working intercom.....have a couple of dozen things need greased. Another couple dozen more need cleaned. And looked at harder, by me.

So Fellas....now I have this newfangled GPS thing in the cockpit....and I've been playing around with my plane....here's what I (think) I know:
The plane will fly at around 176 KTAS on a lot of fuel. (Per hour)
It climbs like an ape, at 110 MPH indicated I saw 2,000 FPM in it the other day.
Pic below shows 140 (MPH) indicated & 1500 FPM, at about 6,000 feet. Took it today on the way back from Bonners Ferry. (First trip in this plane!)

Engine is rough at anything under 2300 RPM, and is too rough for my tastes at anything under 14 GPH or so & 2500 RPM, at 2300 RPM & 19 MP, I can get it down to about 13 GPH fairly comfortable, but less than that & I don't like it.

Next to install is my EDM 900, THAT will FINALLY tell me what all is going on w each cylinder, then we get the GAMI's dialed in, then I want to fuel system calibrated & dialed in.

Then comes panel, interior, paint, you know, the small things like tip tanks.... :coffee:
