I came home today as well grinning from ear to ear! Had my 1005 and Spectra out, did 4 flights with the Spectra and 2 with the 1005. Trying to make sure they are good and ready for the 107th FF this weekend after OC-bob's last weekend
I remember it took me 22 flights before I started enjoying the spectra. The first bunch were all adjustment flights. On the 1005 even after 75 flights I remember I was still not comfortable. That big gas machine was scaring me a bit (my first gasser back in 1997), kinda like Turbogti is feeling at the moment.
Today I finished flight #372 with the Spectra -- aproaching 100 hrs on it now. I was talking to Bob at Minair earlier -- I still got my original gear, clutch and sprag in there along with many other parts including all bearings except for the tail box. It definately is a super quality machine and man was it so crisp and awesome today against the blue skies with the cool air. I could feel the extra power when compared to last weekend at OC Bob's with 90+ temps and the high humididty.
Enjoy your machine -- it will bring you many hours of fun!!
