If it flies well, and puts a smile on your face, it's a successful build. Looks nice, and flies just fine from what I can see. Congratulations, and welcome to the addiction. You have no idea what you got yourself into!

Thats a lot better than my first! Congrats!

You did a very nice and neat job with it!

I think the wings could use a bit more cf or wood at around 30% chord( 30% from the Leading edge).

When you took off, the wings sagged a bit i think.

Nice job!
