Default video first engine start March 5, 2012

Well yesterday, I confirmed there is fire in the belly of my aircraft. After belching a little smoke she agreed to cooperate. The first engine run and a short taxi went fine. I did discover I have a connection problem with my strobes though. I suspect I know right were the problem is and it should be an easy fix. DAR will be here Friday... looking forward to getting that over with. As the build draws to a close I've been excited but now, I'm really excited! Here's the you tube link to the video.

Way to go! It's a great day when your creation starts making noise and moving around under its own power.
