Default RV-8 N869AM

My first post. I am usually a lurker. My project is pretty far along. I started the tail 2 years ago in a class at Synergy Air in Eugene OR. I have the quickbuild wings and the quickbuild fuselage. I will post a bunch of pics.

The wings were completed over a year ago. There wasn't that much work that needed to be done on the quickbuild wings. I used Aeroleds for the lights and a dynon heated pitot tube.

The fuselage is about 80% complete with 80% more work to go to finish it. You will see from the pics that I still have it on the gear and the engine is in.

Thanks, I have been a lurker for a while and decided I need to also give back. I plan to do a bunch of neat stuff with this plane and wanted to share it.
