So this evening, the rudder kit purchased on April of 2005 took its maiden flight. Of course there were a few more parts attached to it. The flight was uneventful even though I wound up with some electrical concerns. My COM stopped working.
A little elevator trim and then some Aileron trim.
The video attached is a short clip from my wife's phone, thus the rotation!! I'll get a first flight video shortly.
All one can say is you will never forget it!

Congrats on that first flight. It gets me motivated to build more when I see videos like this. Thanks for sharing!
Very, very nice!
Way to go, Richard!! I love your wife's reaction. I think mine will have a few more choice words when I get to that stage. Love the paint job!
Concur, the green car, + your green Zodiac, blend right into the green grass. Touch up paint for one Green Machine will work for the other.
Congratulations! All the hard work paid off!
Congratulations! Beautiful paint job. Took me forever to figure out iPhone orientation. I learned to keep menu button on right or bottom.
Congrats from Idaho!
Love the colors and paint scheme!
Blue skys ahead
