Default Cleared for Takeoff

Received the airworthiness certificate yesterday. It's been a long haul. Time to get serious about flight testing.

Thanks to everyone on the site for all the great info.

I painted prior to assembly because the painter had time for the wings and he could store them for a few months and get them out of the living room. He also came and picked them up. I also couldn't see taking it apart once it was flying and being offline for weeks.
