Just after my 1st flight in it.. It's everything I'd hoped it would be.. Fast, responsive, climbs like a rocket, and lands so easy!

Looks great Doug, congratulations on your maiden. Was the RV a new build for you or did it have hours already on it. In any case that is a beautiful RV.

Next time I go up to Ramona I'll get some.. It's getting the yearly condition inspection done right now.. Hoping it'll be done and I can fly it again before I head back to Afghanistan next weekend.

It had about 500 hours on it when I took delivery from the previous owner.

Was able to fly it one more time before I head back to Afghanistan.. Sucks I have to wait 4 months to fly it again, but duty calls.

The RV Grin is permanent!

Working on some video to upload, and have a new mount on the way to give better perspective, as well as an audio solution to hear ATC/intercom chatter..

Uploading soon..

Nize! What's your MOS in the service?

There are a few purdy nice RV model kits out there, maybe time for a tribute model!

Thanks for your service, stay safe over there.
