Default Another RV-14 flies....

In case people haven't noticed, the hobbs meter value for flying RV-14's his clicked up one tick to "3".

I guess Mitch is too humble to toot his own horn so i will blow into it for him.

Congrats on a successful first flight yesterday Mitch.

Everyone, thanks ever so much for your support! We're putting together a nice little video about it. Watch the website.

BTW, put two more hours on it today. Engine's running great. Fly's nice and straight. Now the process of AOA and A/P setups and calibrations begin.

As I told you on the phone Mitch, super congrats. Now MJ is really "chomping at the bit".
