Aside from her color the build is completed and she passed a complete operation check on the bench. Ready to maiden as soon as weather permits. This is the best kit I have ever built....very Perice and the parts fit seamlessly. Hope the Maiden goes as smooth as the build.

I and a friend used my laser range finder, and after each confirmed reading I put the power on and climbed to the next height. The reading was recorded and then put into the vid. I found as a newbie to glider flying that a plane 1000 feet away is hard to deal with.
