Maiden voyage

Got my plane in the air today!!!

Yep, that’s right, it actually flies. 🙂 It was a serious hassle, and required far too much work–got out to the field and discovered the radio receiver wasn’t wired correctly, the prop nut flew off (twice), the engine doesn’t want to idle, but… it flew!

Yes, I’m a complete novice…and yes, I’m quite enjoying being a novice for a change. I love learning things.

A bit of work to do and it’ll be ready to go again.

(Yep, that’s kellyv‘s car behind the plane–it’s that big.)
