Flight test success!

This weekend I was blessed with some good (great) weather. Saturday morning was cold, but very calm and clear.


My friend Tom agreed to be my test pilot for the first (well, second πŸ˜‰) flight. He got it all trimmed and ready to fly. I say it was the second flight because while I was taxiing it around, I decided "what the hell" and decided to fly it… It didn't end that well.

Looking on the bright side, the result is a testament to quality of my construction (read: luck). The only damage was a little dirt on the wingtip. Not too bad. πŸ˜„


Cartwheel "damage"

After that bit of excitement, I decided it would be best to let my test pilot try again πŸ˜‰ This time, the plane flew quite well.

Above is one of the first moments of controlled flight for my humble plane. I have to say, it was very exciting!

I don't have a lot to say about the rest of the photos, Tom took most of them while I was flying (including the lovely cartwheel photos). Enjoy them!
