Default N502CF is an airplane!

This is late coming, but on November 17th N502CF took off for the first time. It was Awesome! everything went great with only one issue being a heavy left wing. I had so much fun building over the last 4 years and it's really nice having it finished. Well...Almost finished. Now I can focus more on my "real" job, which interesting enough is more enjoyable now too. Here's some pics to check out.

Congrats, Chris, on building and flying such a good looking airplane.

Some of the parts appear to be made of carbon fiber, your business must be on the leading edge of that process. There is so much of it these days - like in the Boeing 787.

Good to see it filtering down to our world.

That is a lovely machine you have created Chis. You must be justifiably proud. I do like your colour scheme which is so simple and yet when I look at it I want to say Wow.

Very well done mate. Enjoy.
