Dad and Anthony flew the Honda Jet this past Saturday and Sunday. The attached video is from Saturday. Sunday’s flight went well but the landing gear needs to be upgraded to heavier duty. The plane turned out at 50 pounds and even though Anthony brought it in nice and clean the gear is just too small for the plane and the port side failed. Another couple of months on the bench and we’ll be flying again. Nobody ever said this was easy.
