Wow! Time goes by. I haven't updated anything here in almost a year. We finally got through DAR inspection last fall. This was followed by a seemingly endless stream of minor things I wanted fixed or installed before we flew.

Finally, on April 21 of this year, we had our first flight. You can see photos and video here:

Each test flight so far has produced a number of things I wanted fixed, so we haven't progressed very rapidly. But that's the purpose of flight test: to characterize the aircraft, and find the problems,

I think we are near the bottom of the heap of problems, so hopefully will will finish flight nest in the not too distant future.
