I managed to get my friend to edit a video of my first flight in the
Q 200 Subaru. All the ground shots are from the second flight. I
didn't want my wife there, so she filmed the second flight . The in
flight shots are from the first flight.

I hit the reflexor on takeoff to get a better angle. I am a big
athiest, but have always done the sign of the cross since my first
flight thirty years ago, so I don't mess with luck. Interestingly, I
took a Catholic priest for a ride last year and you should of see his
face when I did that.

I stayed between 150 and 160 indicated , stayed low rpm, 3,000 and
flew for an hr. Around the seven minute mark I do some slow flight


It also flew hands off with no trimming needed. Still have four
feet of snow , so another two months before the adventure begins.
