Having put this off as long as I could, I’ve summoned the courage to trim the windscreen until it fits. I absolutely do not want to crack it and I cannot afford to over-trim. It has to be done, just so. If ever there was a time to apply, measure twice, cut once – this is it!
Along the way, I take comfort in and from small stress-reducing distractions. Testing out my fancy new lithium battery charger yields a few moments to gather myself. The charger has a feature that can supply up to 10A of current to power the avionics and allow for extended sessions of testing, configuration and familiarization – ok, play! There’s a lot to learn and it’s going to take quite a bit of play time.
