Re: Status: Brantel RV10 build

And here they are. All done with the exception of the fairings. These things were the most time consuming so far. Some real brain teasers and tight spaces to work in. New to me construction techniques and the fact that it has two trim tabs made these much more challenging than the RV-7 elevators. Gl...

Re: Status: Brantel RV10 build

In progress on the HS. This thing is taking a while! Tonight I match reamed over 940ea #40 holes!

Had a few distractions over the past couple weeks that is also slowing me down.

Check out the HS progress in my build blog:

Shantel and I had already begged a ride from Don Pansier so the seats Mike secured for us with Painless should be open.

Re: Oshkosh 2018

Bob,

Yep the weather is really looking hard for a Sat or even Sun arrival. I don't have a slot so I don't have that option.

Bummer!

Re: Black Otter 2018!

I am more than OK with Tues. My wife and I are breaking up with the Van's snooze fest this year. Although I did win $100 gift cert. last year! (That I have never used)

I too like to leave Thurs. morning and have never seen the night airshow.

Re: OSHKosh Beer Tasting

Bummer but this may be the first year in 5 years that I don't make it to Osh :(

Work schedule and the money sucking sound that my house has been making for the last year has left me thinking it won't happen this year....

Official guidance for drilling holes in wing spar center section

Van's finally published written directions on the guidance around drilling extra holes in the main wing spar center section of the RV-7/-7A & -9/-9A.... Good for me since I am thinking of installing a smoke system.... Enjoy: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_Rjrk7EAkm7eS1CaEQ0RzVodXc/view?usp=s...

I'm back in the saddle again!

Finally got back into the air this weekend after almost 8 months of downtime from a stent to the heart! The FAA says that there is a minimum 3 month wait time for the type and location of the stent I had implanted. YEAH RIGHT! Try 8 months to get thru their system and that is if you do everything co...
