Default Re: First build in progress!

I smiled as I read your post, remembering my own first flights and the very first time the engine caught and coughed to life..."it's alive"!!!! Yes, I know the feeling for sure. Congratulations, especially knowing it will only get better as you tweak this and that. I was just thinking of the Wright brothers and what those first couple of hops into the air must have been like... knowing that for however brief it might have been "we're flying!!!" Dreams come true; those of kids with playing cards against their spokes and those of grown men wanting to fly.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
