Phase 1 Flight Testing – COMPLETE

I am happy to report that I finished my phase 1 flight testing this morning!  I loaded the airplane up with all my camping gear, food, water, clothes, etc and flew around for two and a half hours.  I wanted to see how the airplane would respond fully loaded.  Also, I needed those hours to be legal to leave my 50 mile test radius.  I’m happy to report that although a little sluggish with all the weight, the airplane performed just fine.  Tonight I will sign off my flight testing as being done and I now have a real-live airplane that can carry passengers and everything.

I leave for Oshkosh tomorrow at first light.  I would appreciate your prayers for protection for my family while I am gone, and for a safe flight there and back again for myself.
