Default Another first flight

Cold calm morning at PVF. Handed Doug the keys. Time to see what it does. He orbited the field several times within glide distance. Returned and reported straight and true. Does not have a heavy wing. No rigging to adjust. ICom gave us some fits with all of the possible program parameters. Small oil leak at a rocker cover.

Terrible video even after editing. Oh, well, better then none at all.

3 years and 9 months of steady work. Our landscaping reflects my lack of interest in anything other then the RV.

Wow, I built an airplane...........👍

Congratulations on First Flight!

Hoping soon

Yea terrible video, but I made one for another guy and it is really really hard to get close or use a long lens to capture a full screen, accelerating image. Where is that dot in the sky anyway?

Still - it captured the moment!!
