Default Want to see a RV 10 up close before deciding

I am considering building a RV 10 but want to look one over first. Maybe even get a ride in one. Anyone in the Wyoming area? I live near Cheyenne.

No -10 here (yet) but I'm building a -7A in Worland. If you ever want to see basic construction and talk for hours on end how to build one just let me know if you are ever in town. haha

Also, Denver area is probably your best bet in finding a -10 driver.

I will take you up on a visit if I get near there in the future. I flew over Worland 2 weeks ago but no reason to stop then. I saw a 7a at the Glendo flyin this year, they look pretty nice.

Arno I just sent this link to a an email group I'm in. There are a few -10 builders in the North Colorado area. Hopefully you will get some responses.

Default Boulder / Broomfield area builders?

I'm getting awfully close to pulling the trigger on a RV-10 kit. Just trying to figure out where to build it since my home field (KBDU) claims a 2 year wait on hangars. If anyone at Boulder, Broomfield, Erie, or Longmont is building one, I'd love to get in contact and ask a few questions, compare notes, etc. Thanks! Phone number is 720-288-1504. (Michael)

I'm on it! Just trying to figure out where I start building. I really can't taxi a plane from my garage down the street.

Is it unrealistic to order the $4000 tail section first and start to build that in a storage unit? I figure that would be a secure location, I can transport the tail to the hangar when I get one, and if I find that this isn't turning out well, I'm only out the $4,000.

There are many who built the whole plane (wings off) in a two car garage, then rented a tilt-bed truck for the trip to the airport. I did this.
Yes, many get the tail kit first, to see if building is really for you. I did this.
Most storage units are pretty small, lack power, and may not appreciate the noise of an air compressor. If you can find the space building at home has advantages.
