Well, if you do as good a job with the RV as you did on the SR-------you are gonna need to build a new addition on the house to hold all the trophies.

I have my RV10 hangared in Jeff City and happy to see your post. Welcome. The RV10 is a wonderful airplane. We have a great EAA chapter at KJEF with a lot of experienced builders around central MO, some from Columbia. Looks like your building skills are superb already.

Work is underway, and Iím having a blast!
Really impressed with how well thought out and designed all of this is. It gives encouragement and confidence in the path that lay ahead.
To the guys in Missouri, Iím looking forward to crossing paths with you all, and getting to see your birds. Iím getting to know the guys at the Jeff City EAA, and it looks like a great group.
To Mike S, neat to connect the dots through our mutual friend, and thanks for the well wishes as well.

Iíve one small questionÖ one of the photos is a really close up shot of the small bend thatís to be put on the trailing edge of the rudder skin. Does that amount looks about right? That seemed to be about how much I did on the small practice kit that was a 1 foot aileron section, and it seemed to turn out ok. But Iíd rather not glue the trailing edge together, and have it curl up during riveting.

Thanks,
Lance

If both skins have that bend, looks good to me,

On to some bigger pieces now, as work is well underway with the horizontal stab. Iím getting most of the tail feathers up to the point of closing them up and pausing, prior to a visit from my tech counselor to double check that Iím doing things in a manner that wonít put life or limb at risk.

One thing I started to notice was that the dust from deburring with the 6 inch grinder and scotch-brite wheels, wasnít staying in the immediate vicinity of the grinder like I thought it was, I was finding it 10-15 feet away and it was starting to get on everything. So, a trip to Home Depot, and for less than $40, Iíve got a great solution of a fan, filter, and bit of tape, to help keep the dust in check, and it seems to be doing a great job.

One other tweak, on the HS cradles, I didnít like how they wanted to crease the metal (they didnít, but looked like they wanted to), so I grabbed some 1/32 in plywood from the hobby pile, and made some quick 2 inch wide Ďfeetí, and simply attached them with some tape, to widen the pressure/contact area, and liked the result.

Having fun and plugging awayÖ.
Lance

Default RV10 in Warsaw KRAW

Hello Lance,

Congrats to you! Excited to know about another 10 that will be flying in Missouri. If you ever want to look at or fly in mine I fly into KCOU regularly. Live in Sedalia but have the 10 hangared in Warsaw.

Cheers,

Jerry

Lance,
Just started a RV-10 in Washington (KFYG) and would love to stop in sometime as I am doing a slower build and would love to see how your doing things. I need to still keep up the skills on flying so a quick trip to Columbia would be great.
On the RC front we probably know a few of the same people as my son and I were into the hobby and he recently got his turbine waiver. PM me your number if you would like to catch up.

Default SR-71 Model

Lance,

That's the coolest RC plane I've ever seen. The Blackbird happens to be my favorite plane of all time. You sir, are very up to the challenge of an RV-10. Heck, now I want you to come to Denver, to help me with my fiberglass work!
