Happy to report that RV-8 G-MIRV made it's first flight July 1. My build-partner Steve did the honours. Two flights in the bag, first one was 30 mins, and following a good post-flight inspection and refuel, the second one was two hours of running in.
I've really enjoyed building another RV, but the best part has been making a new mate in Steve. I know some people fret about co-building an aircraft with someone else, but when you find a great personality match, it just enhances the pleasure of the build process.
