First Solo Ever

Hello everyone,

Today, I made my second flight and first solo(s) on the SSX II. It was a nice sunny day and the winds were about 5mph, albeit low 40's (Fahrenheit). The flights were easy and uneventful, which is what I preferred! This was my first build and it was a great feeling to have flown it solo it such a short period of time. The RealFlight model is so realistic that I felt comfortable with take off and landing; although I did have experienced pilots ready in case things went awry. Woohoo!

Congrats man!! What a great day to fly. I wish I could have joined ya, but I was stuck in the office. The walk to the car at Lunch was a killer. All I could think of was hitting the field. Glad it went well!
