Many thanks guys for your kind words and yes i was extremely pleased with the maiden, just requiring 2 clicks of down elevator and she flew beautifully. As usual a Big thanks of course go to Chris for some plan/advice etc, Barry for the decals/tugging and Barry (Sarik Hobbies) for the canopy. Not forgetting of course all the back-up supporters and well wishers at Keysley yesterday. A great day was had by all. :D :D :D
