Default RV-10 builders in Texas...

My wife and I are strongly considering starting a RV-10 build in the next 2 years as we move to "empty-nester-hood". I've been vested with the research beforehand and would like to be able to pick the brain or get a up close view of a -10 (or ANY project being built or already completed). This is mainly to get the wife more on board, excited, etc...

Thanks in advance,

Nate

Nate, we have 4 flying RV10s, 2 flying RV14s, a number of RV7s and a couple newly started RV10 projects at Pecan Plantation, 0TX1, southwest of Fort Worth. Let me know if you are interested in visiting and I will help coordinate a visit to any that are available.

I'm building an RV-10 in a shop in Richmond TX (suberb south of Houston) and would be happy to show you what I have done or discuss my experiences with the build.

Cheers

I'm in The Woodlands, North of Houston. Dave is markedly farther along than I am, but you are more than welcome to stop by and check mine out as well.

I'm building at KCXO where we have over 40 RV's based. My wife is totally behind the project and may be of help.

I'm at hangar 44E-4 on the hill.

EAA Ch 302 meets every 2nd Sat, 1000, Galaxy FBO.
