Talking RV-7 D-ESOT First Flight

Dear RV friends,
I would like to share my successfull D-ESOT RV7/72535 first flight happiness in this amazing, entertaining and helpful VAF. I enjoyed working on my RV every minute and, like many of you, the building process was accomplished by up and downs, sense of achievement, and also moments to cry due to paint issues. Thank you Doug for this information platform, as a passive member I read regularly in the forum and got specific information for my project from it. I also got information about new products and the corresponding addresses to spent a lot of money
D-ESOT configuration is: ECI Titan OX-360 A4HIN (-FIS) with Silver Hawk FI, Christen inv.oil, Andair loud fuel pump , Andair gascolators, G3X touch single screen/all you can connect, GNS430W, GTR225A, PS5000X, GTX335.
The first flight was conducted in EDVE (Braunschweig) by Georg from Hamburg, enjoy viewing the video:

Best regards,
Harald

Congrats.

You didn't mention but I'd bet there is a German MT Propeller pulling you along; possibly one of the few components where the shipping price didn't exceed the price of the component.
