Seven years and one month. I want to call out some names later of people without whose help I could not have gotten this far, but until then a huge thank to this community for the support you've shown this know nothing builder who didn't even own a hacksaw

Thank you everyone for the kind comments. I'm still trying to decide whether to stick with my original plan and get Roger out to do my first flight or just do it myself. My transition training with Buzzy went great and if my plane behaves like his, it would be no problem to do it myself but.... having never done this before, who knows what I might have done slightly wrong enough to cause issues.

But I don't like the idea of a newly certified plane, and a freshly 'transitioned' pilot sitting around looking at the sky.

Thanks again for all the nice remarks,

Congratulations Paul, people not only helped you but you helped me with the choice of fuel selectors thank you and a fantastic first flight.

Congratulations Paul! I knew you could do it. Now you have proven to yourself you have got what it takes. Now take your time to learn your airplane like you had to learn how to build it. Good luck.
