Default FlightChops: Falsi-Fighter First Flight Posted!

In case you hadn't heard, Steve Thorne posted his latest episode today on Dave Carrick's first (and second) flight of my aircraft. Much thanks to Steve and Dave for helping perform and document this historic day in such excellent form. I owe them both a great deal. A great deal on what, has yet to be determined.

I applied some D-section silicon rubber weatherstripping along the aft inside edges of the canopy skirt; worked well. Steve included a couple still photos of the fix at the end of the video.
