Return of the T-Bolt!

Ah, yes. Life is good.

The new Thunderbolt took to the skies earlier today in a bit of a wind, but not bad enough to ground me.

Needs a bit of an elevator adjustment, but I was fairly sure it would anyway. It looked like it may have been set a smidge too low, so sure enough, it wanted to drop the nose a bit. It only took a few clicks of the trim lever to set it right.

However, there was an unexpected benefit.

This plane is fast.

Extremely so, in fact.

It has the same motor as the old one, the same batteries, the same kind of prop and the same radio but oh, sweet Mary, did it haul bananas. I wasn't the only one who noticed it.

I be a really happy camper, I be.
