Default Velocity 44VF First Taxi Test

We'd hoped to do this about a month ago, and the footage is grainy because we didn't get her started until it was dusk, but for those needing a little boost today.....

Great video Brett. Very inspirational. The Lycoming sounds fantastic.

I am close to engine start myself. I hope to be where you are early next spring.

Keep us posted on first flight plans.

Way to go. The first flight is probably the most exciting event a builder will every experience. You will understand, once you have achieved that. Looking great, keep everyone informed.
