First flight this past week and all is good. It's a climber with that engine/prop combo and the slow flight characteristics are exactly what I was wanting. Right now just flying the pattern at 65mph getting the feel of it and avoiding all those hard-to-understand Diamond trainers.
The smell of leather and avgas are my favorite second only to hot racing tires after qualifying.
