Default Need Condition Inspection Checklist

I need a condition inspection checklist. I found a few threads here with links to a checklist but the threads were old and the link no longer exists. I also checked Van's website and no joy. Any help would be appreciated. Post here or you can send to my email.
mmcmanus@sstelco.com
Thanks.
Matt

There are a couple listed on the bottom of the POH page.

I need one too, desperately! My regular mechanic can no longer work due to a serious injury so I'm going to use the local shop that has never worked on an RV7. It's a good shop, just no RV experience. Robert

Default Checklist

Thanks for providing Walt. I found your checklist a couple of weeks ago. I used it for the condition inspection which was just completed. Very complete! Highly recommend.

My thanks as well. I'm heading out to the airport this AM to review your list with my new mechanic. Robert

Walt, I noticed an item on your CI checklist that was missing from mine. You have a line item to remove the prop (if constant speed) and remove sludge (if required). Can you elaborate on this item? Do you remove all CS props for inspection? I have not removed my CS prop since it was initially installed. Any gotchas with respect to introducing maintenance induced failures when performing this step?
Tks,
MD
