The way it lifted off, it must have very light wing loading. Beautiful work, congratulations and nice flying. Aren't maiden's after months of planning and work "fun".

Han,
Very nicely done. Congradulations on the successful flights. The plane looks fantastic. Good luck with it. Do you have scale flying events in Holland? Bet you could get a high score if you went. Nice looking flying field. Nice and flat, no trees nearby. I bet you get some wind off the Baltic or North Sea though,

Gelukkige dag aan u
