Comment

First flight after numerous repairs to Antares.
Hydraulic system and a thermal fuse failed at Seniors in Florida.
I found and worked around 2 serious engineering mistakes
to get it back together safely (4 repairs this round).
This after last fall's repair to find, reengineer,
and fix burned (incorrectly designed) component that
disabled propulsion...

Thanks to all who encouraged me not to give up on this machine.
GREAT to be back in the air, my first flight since March!
