In preparation for the first flight we pulled the Corsair out and did a high power engine run and system shakedown. We ran the engine for approximately and hour with no noted defects. We tested all the powered systems with the engine running and also found no defects. After a four and a half build it was an awesome accomplishment to not have any problems on this day. Below are some pictures of this engine run.
