Default N124RL flies

A couple of years and about 1,000 hours, I finally got it in the air this week.

Amazing!! The plane flies hands off right away; no external mods or trim required. Temperatures all in the green. Stalls very well behaved. A real joy to fly.

I'm having trouble posting the pictures, but they are very unremarkable anyway.

Thanks to Vans for a great design an support. Thanks to members of this board for help with many issues.

The only down side is that I now have placed my 8A for sale (posted in the Classified section of this board).
