Default RV-10 JimD Repeat Offender (RV-6 Flying Since 08)

Hi Guys,

Thought I would start a build thread. I have been posting youtube videos of my progress including little tips and some 3D printed "tools" and just plain build updates. I started creating the videos as a way to document my progress.

Here is a link to my latest video (July 11th, 2018), it happens to involve 3D printed drill guides for center punching the holes on torque tubes.

Here is the link to the files on Thingiverse
