Default First engine start N516RC

After a great worship service this morning, my wife and I headed to the airport with something special in mind. With the help of many of our RV buddies, we installed the prop on Moonpie II and pulled her out of the hangar. Called the fuel truck for the first couple of gallons of high dollar fun and fired her up. What excitement. My wife, Moonpie, has been a co-builder since we met. I had just started the tail at the time. We have a couple of issues to rectify, but overall, it was a great experience. Here is a short video of the first start.
