Default 142LM First Flight

Well, after two and a half years of building and 8 months distractions, at 6:07pm central time at 3GV 142LM finally took to air. The flight was flawless with slight turbulence but no wind. All the parameters were in the green. Flew for 1.7 hours and looking forward for more to come.

Congrats!

Be sure to stop by the RV-10 dinner at OSH on the Sunday before the show to say hello and introduce yourself to the gang.

Try this link.

Bob, wish we could go to the dinner but we won't be able to make it. We will be there later in the week. Hope to get there Thursday. Thanks for all the replies.
