Thumbs up Tim Olson's RV-10

Started 2/12/2006. By 6/8/2006 I'm almost at 84 spectacular hours.
My site at has lots more info on the project. Will be at OSH for sure. Look me up if you're a -10 builder!

We finally got 'er done. You can't see the detail on the wings, the graphic represents monarch butterfly wings. Here's a couple of photos:

I recieved my airworthy certificat on 7-21-06 from DAR Ted Gauthier. Very through and professional and explains every phase of the flight process.
finished putting inspection plates and seats in today and launched off for the first flight. Everything worked well during the one hour flight. during the first landing when I used the hat trim switch it Quit and the #5 cylinder cht and egt redlined on the GRT.
Landed and took the cowling off, a little oil leak fixed, removed the fuel injector and it was partialy clogged with some forgien gunk from some where.
The realay in the CH products stick grip burnt out, this is an ongoing problem from what I understand with no fix from CH products they refund $40.00 and you are on your own.
Other than that a PERFECT flight. Time to go for the second flight before it gets dark.

Although I'm not flying yet, I used a relay bank I made from relays I bought from McMaster-Carr for my aileron and elevator trim. From what I can tell there are not any relays in my CH stick. Is it possible that they eliminated them from newer models? My grips are 4 months old. The wiring diagram that came with the sticks showed the sticks hooked up to a trim relay board from Ray Allen I think. I have heard other say they had relays in their grips but I have straight swithches from what I can tell.

Default N710RV Painted

Happy Builder/Spouse

First Flight was 7-28-06. Flys like a dream, only wish I had a little more elevator with full flaps, 75mph, and only a pilot on board. It has just enough but I have the MT prop and have 18 pounds less weight up front.

Still playing with the three screen GRT EFIS

I sent the links to my dad. He works at the FAA office (in Lubbock) and mention your plane to me. Nice looking bird.
