    • This weekend I hit a few mile stones and feel it is an appropriate place for me to end this thread of first impressions. This weekend I hit 100 hours and 50 passenger flights. Laura who was my first passenger, also is in the books as my 50th. In addition I recently completed the longest flights to date about 130 miles or so from FD 92 to Cedar Key. I have flown passengers all through our hot summer and am very happy with my result. The Honda engine has been a flawless performer to this point. The Dragon Wings that Ernie provided and the pre-rotater all doing everything I could ask. The only short comings of the air frame and a short coming that has been corrected in the production version is the small pod. The back seat passenger has a windy ride if I exceed 65 MPH, but we do have Flycom helmets with full face masks which add considerably to both the comfort and the passenger communication. I am in the process of looking for an enclosed trailer. I plan to haunt a few more flyins, but after my 130 mile recent trip, I came to the realization that longer trips than that are just not much fun. So for me this thread is closed, thanks for reading along.
