Default Way to go Steve!

Now you can just forget about how many times you tried to perfect that forward baggage door and just go flying! Really happy to see you finally get to the building finish line, and can't wait to see your reports on Phase 1.

Default Thanks

Guys, thanks for all the comments. I'll try to post some pics of first flight. Been a long journey--only wish I had started the project 5 years earlier!
