Although I've been a VAF member for some time, this is my first post.
I'm looking for an excellent RV-4. By that I mean an excellent build, along lines of Dayton Murdock's RV-4 as described by Paul Dye here:
If you have one or know of someone who is thinking of making room for their next build, I can provide a good home.
My nice-to-have list is below, but the build quality, no accidents, incidents or damage and no long periods sitting idle are the only requirements.
I will be relying on Vic Syracuse to confirm the quality of the plane and to give his opinion of the value of the plane. I'm expecting to spend $40-50K but will pay whatever the plane is worth. I'm not looking for a bargain (but will gladly accept one!).
The panel is not important but an EFIS would be nice.
Other nice to have:
- less than ~800 hours
- less than 15 years old
- light weight
- IO- or O-320 with good compression, but -360 is acceptable.
- 3-blade Catto prop or similar
- dynafocal mount, vetterman exhaust, engine monitor, etc, etc.
I'm going to try to be patient and wait for the right plane, so you may see this post a few more times.
