Can't believe how well you've covered the li'l emotional gamut I've been thru just about every time I've mounted my wing. SO glad to hear it wasn't just me going thru the 'little drama' as you put it. *LOL*

What's the bummer is, when it gets down to the end and you KNOW something's gone wrong.....'cuz at that point, it's too late & nothing you can do. If there's one thing I could have different about the Phoenix, it'd be some different method of tying that wing & fuse together!
