Final SU35 repair pics and 2 vids

Heres the Pics & videos of my 1st flight after finishing repairs today.

Pics added silver to resemble the glass on the OLS-UEM tracking system infront of cockpit. Painted cockpit blue to cover up some epoxy. Also after looking things over I felt that the nose area didnt need to be reinforced after all for the nose gear. Landings are soft enough to prevent a major break. Most of the weight on landing is carried on the mains so land her with the nose slightly up and not a high AoA and your fine. If i do brake the nose I would rather it just snap again than break further back, just my opinion.

1st flight since repairs & making sure she flys fine, landing was perfect!!!
