After a week of fighting the flu, I managed to get to the airport and strapped on my RV-8.
I can't say that I wasn't nervous..I sure was, but once the power was poured on, all trepidation left and it was down to business.
What an amazing feeling....Incredible!!!
The only issues I had was a heavy right wing, a D180 that screamed stall at me the entire flight (my programming mistake) and a MP issue that I have to resolve.
There are so many I have to thank. My family, you're the best! Manny Rosario and the boys at Enterprise Air...your ACES!. Rob Baldasaro, thanks for the paint work!. Simon Hitcheon, thanks for my RV checkout and the support!! All the others from this site for the help and guidance, much thanks!
For those of you still building...keep moving forward every day...These are amazing aircraft!!
It wasn't a perfect weather day, but the end result..PRICELESS!!
