    Woo hoo!   That’s G-CCZR and I was on a week long flying holiday with two other EclipR in France - that pic was the morning I ended up hand propping one of the other EclipRs due to a flat battery.

    I now have one of the other ones from that trip - BYSS - in the container waiting reassembly and putting on the oz register as well as a 447 and a 503 Raven.
