No progress to report, but I logged time in a Ford Tri-Motor today! Today's log book entry is the first time I've added time in the multi engine column! I can report that it does not respond to control inputs as nicely as an RV. Heavy rudder input is needed on all bank changes. It was weird touching down while sitting so far above the runway. The main control panel only has instrumentation for the nose engine. The engine instruments for the 2 side engines are mounted on the side of the nacelles and you have to look out the window to see them. Lots of fun!
