Andy! Wow, congratulations on your 1st flight! Thought I would browse around and saw you have had 3 flights in the past few days. Good for you. Hope to hear some preliminary flight review and some rough numbers when you get a chance.

Another Panther to add to the fleet! Very cool...

OMG, that could be a whole different thread in itself. Seems like G.A. suffers whenever there is a hiccup. Good to hear all in all and look forward to a successful 1st flight report soon.

Take care

Yes, I have perfected the way to turn a two year project into five. Hurricanes and government shutdowns aside, I will finally get the FSDO to inspect it next week. Hopefully I can get airborne in the not too distant future.

Hoping to get a nice new Senseich prop from Santa as the last big piece I need to get me through to completion. However, I must admit the thought of moving it out of the garage and to the airport is already bittersweet... so maybe it will take just a few months more. Now I know how serial builders come to be, could never figure it out before.

Agree Andy, the idea of walking out to my garage only to see a couple dirty cars and a bunch of unused aircraft building tools (pails of hundreds of unused clecos, etc) is real depressing. I definitely think that I like building more than flyin, and am really having fun building the Panther, and am glad that I have a whole fuselage and half a wing (and FWF) yet to go.

Andy,
I haven't seen any new construction post in a while? Still at it?

Don't know what is up with Picasa/Google tonight - but I get the same thing, even on Tony's site. Maybe just a bug on their site this evening?
