Thank you everyone.
Subsequent flights just confirm how WOW this airplane is !!
Just over 4 hours done, mostly breaking-in the engine, calibrating the AOA and compass and enjoying the ride.

Thanks to you showing me your RV-7, here I am, flying my own RV-8 !!
Magali is first on my list of passengers, I need to fly 25 hours before I can apply for a C of A without restrictions.
