Cool. They should've put some reptilian scales on it and named it Godzilla.

It sounded originally like the authorities would permit only a single flight for the aircraft, now it sounds like they'll be allowed to fly it more than that which is great news! Looks great, quite a different paint scheme. Congrats to all involved.

I believe he works for the same company I do now.. can see the logo on the cowl, and have seen some pictures in our company news letters..but he is on the other side of the world. Great job!

I can remember living in HK and reading VAF everyday. I looked into building in HK but I ran into so many dead ends. I finally had to leave HK to make my dream happen. I loved living there.
Good to see the team made it happen.

Congratulations to all involved! It's a great accomplishment, and especially since it sounds like more flights will be authorized. Maybe this can help promote and expand EAB aviation in mainland China too.

Congrats! I know this is a major endeavor over there. Enjoy the flight testing phase. I like that paint scheme!
