Default First Flight VH-MQB

I'm pleased to report that VH-MQB (serial number 91939) now does what it's supposed to do.

Father and child are doing well, as is the test pilot Tony Manning, who did a magnificent job. Thanks to this great forum and its contributors. Without it I would have been lost.

Apart from a few niggles it was a relatively painless experience and flies "hands off" straight and level.

Congratulations Michael! How long did it take you to build? That tape looks nice on the rudder.
Where is N666BK?

Awesome stuff Michael. You must be so stoked. No rest for the wicked though, as I suspect you will be starting soon on the next one...

Way to go. Now comes the best part of building ie flying. I have 39 hrs on my 9A. Flys just like I hoped it would. Only thing is my back yard shop in empty.

Congratulations again
