No matter what people say keep wrenching

November , 2 1947, the famed "Spruce Goose" flew for the first and only time. The largest aircraft ever built at the time, it was widely panned by aviation engineers and the flying community as "too large" and "a colossal mistake". Howard Hughes, who designed and bankrolled the project remained undaunted and in the process created several new manufacturing processes and pioneered the use of composite building materials in the aviation and other industries. Most importantly he did what was deemed "impossible". It flew. When frustrated and convinced that your project has become too much, or when told your ideas are too radical; remember that. It flew. Keep turning wrenches and dreaming up new ideas folks. You're the only thing stopping you from "flying".
