[quote=David-aviator;1216672]Don't know why they aren't responding....but getting back to issue of having satisfactory airplane to fly, have your priced the RV-8 kit shipped to your home?
A basic VFR 8 can be built for a lot less than $150 grand. The kit is matched drilled and goes together quickly and easily. I build mine, not quick built, in about 14 months. Worked about 8 hours a day like full time job. Had to have some help riveting but did most of it myself.
Yes, it can cost $150 but over half that is in fancy glass, avionics, paint, 200Hp engine and CS prop. None of it needed for fun flying RV-8.
If side by side is issue, same can be said for the 7.
Just my 2 cents worth....[/QUOTE
Dave I've looked into an 8 kit, approx. up to $55K, that's the cheap part!:-) I don't wish to build, I'd rather fly than build. I don't have the room anyway.
It's all been an interesting exercise, I'll keep looking at options.
