I think I'm gonna need more SD cards for my camera lol.
A very impressive looking build thread mate. All these carbon fin cans I'm seeing are beautiful. Looking forward to seeing this.
Cheers,

Chris showed due diligence by calling me specifically to ask how many L3's are meant to be in attendance ;-)

Yep! We came to the conclusion that one box of goon should be sufficient. :wink:

Is it an L3 requirement for that to be documented on the flight checklist? :D Something for TAPs to consider for the future.

Have a great flight!

I realise the tradition. I am querying whether it should be part of the flight checklist (L3 documentation) for the certification flight :D
