It is amazing what you can get done on a 12 in a month

Default Considering RV 12 build

Jeff (and all)

I am strongly considering an RV 12 after years or research and thinking about it. I'm just about ready to finally pull the trigger on the tail kit. I'm in the St. Louis area on the Missouri side (Ballwin).

Any further progress or are you waiting for the next kit?

I have been waiting on the wing kit. I waited to long to order it. It is supposed to be crated and shipped the week of the 18th so I hope to have it before new years. Your welcome to come check out the project anytime. Im about 45 minutes away from you just send me a pm if you want to check it out.

Jeff,

Sounds like you almost need to order the wing kit at the same time as the tail if you know you'll be working on it in earnest. Did you order a tool kit from Cleveland etc or get tools locally at Wicks?

I'll probably take you up on seeing your progress. I've seen several flying RV 12's and even did a demo flight at the Midwest LSA Expo a few years back but have never seen one under construction.

Tony

I ordered the Cleaveland tool kit and have been very satisfied. I did upgrade to the pneumatic squeezer and have been really happy I did. Many trips to Harbor freight also and some other miscellaneous stuff from various places.

It's great having wicks ten minutes from my house I have bought a few items from them.

I also flew the twelve at the Midwest lsa show it was a great motivator

Have you decided on the 912 is or ULS? Fortunately you don't have to decide until you order the fuselage kit. I see pluses and minuses with each option. Would be nice to have the latest and greatest but I have some concern on being on the leading (or bleeding) edge.
