Default RV-14A N196 First Flight!

First flight! Went great and uneventful, here's a video - https://vimeo.com/277339586

Thank you Vans, VAF, SteinAir, Vic Syracuse, Dan Horton, and most of all my co-builder Phoenix. What a wonderful airplane!

Totally uneventful first flight! Kudos to Bill and Phoenix for a very well-built airplane.
