N104EW received its airworthiness certificate on Jan 31 2020 and flew first flight Feb 17 2020. Slow build kit approximately 3000 hours build. All work completed mostly by myself including wiring and paint. Wife and sons did help with impossible do it yourself tasks.
First flight was mostly non event. I did get 5 mile radius over the airport for the first 5 hours on my operating limitations.
Is there something unusual about your build that provoked the 5 mile radius for 5 hours?
I wondered the same thing.
