Congrats Mr Fleming. You probably don’t remember me (cuz I’m guessing you’ve helped so many people along the way) but you shared your electrical load calc spreadsheet with me during my -7 build. I HEAVILY copied it. It worked….my -7 hasn’t blown any fuses yet :-). Been flying for a year or so using your math….

Enjoy the days ahead!! They are awesome.

I didnt realize you were so close to finishing. That is great. It is a pretty exciting day to get that AW Certificate. Now the real fun will begin. Make sure you get good video on your first flight!
