Default N104EW Is Flying

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.

Default Congratulations

Congratulations ?. I just finished my phase 1.

? but 5 hours within a 5 mile radius, ouch. This plane likes to git up and go! With engine break in as well. Make that like a 5 mile DME circle to land (at 170 knots) and 34 circles will do it!
Building started Oct 5th 2014, Flying since 1/16/2020

Is there something unusual about your build that provoked the 5 mile radius for 5 hours?
