Boomerang Elan. I have one more 750F coming (it was a great deal, I couldn't pass it up) and then the Elan. I hope to have it flying for this summer.

wow! If I didnt know better.. id say you started that thing a 1000 times before. Didnt like seeing you put your hand behind the exhaust cone.. but professional non the less.

That was actually # 3. The first start, I was having problems with the ecu and wasn't expecting a start, (trying to trouble shoot the gsu), scared the shat out of me when the fuel pump kicked in and she lit. 2nd start is still stuck on the wifes new camera. I took this vid with my phone. I was starting to get a little comfortable with the engine running and just had to see how hot that exhaust was and how much thrust was actually coming out of this little thing. I found out, OH MY GOSH! This is the coolest thing there is. My Vette doesn't even compare to this. I can't wait to get my Elan. Permanently hook for life now...............
