Default First flight yesterday January 23, 2023

We had a wonderful first flight yesterday. Took off from 0TX1 (Pecan Plantation) at 17:45. Flight time was about 20 minutes. All systems performed flawlessly. Left wing was a little heavy. Thanks to all those who have helped me along this 12 year, 1 week journey. Special thanks to Mike Kerzie, Jason Hutchison, Jimmy Cash, Charley Adams, Martin Sutter and countless others.
