Default first engine run

This weekend was spent practicing my RV Grin while doing the first run of the engine in the 10

Engine started on the first handful of blades and ran like a watch. Ground crew photographer caught the first puffs of smoke... thanks Carole!

We eventually got it worked out and met John and Mary (N664RV) out of KREI.
Good breakfast and nice people driving an RV!

I'm 4 Romeo Victor also! N724RV
