Congratulations Jereme, now for the fun part! Did he give you a good area to do your flight testing in? You'll probably be doing the circles around the airport to break the engine in and doing all the calibrations. Best wishes!

Glad to see you're ready to start flying. Your build thread has been fun to follow - from the barrel of Lite cans to the last engine rebuild. It seems like you turn the crank hard and do nice work.

Enjoy the blue skies!

All your hard work is about to pay off. Life will change for you. You will go to the hanger not to build but to fly. It's quite the transition. Have friends look over your aircraft for anything missed. Fresh eyes always a good thing. Have fun. Joe

Congrats on the "Pink slip"

Joe has a good idea about having extra eyes for one last check before first flight.
