Default First Flight!

Success! Flies straight, fast, and simply amazing. I've done 5 more flights since the first one and loving every minute of it. Thank you, Pierre, for doing the first test flight!

Watched the video -- simply amazing. You know, I'm 61 years old, and I can't imagine what the two of you will be able to accomplish by the time you're my age! Congratulations to you both!
