Thanks Again guys and maybe some day I can post a video up.
Shawn,
I started building my RV4 back when there were only 2 RV models available, banging rivets in military base housing in Japan on a shoestring budget before the internet, digital cameras and The VAF. DR had a Yahoo chat group way back then that morphed into this site, the rest as they say is history.
I'll try to dig up a few videos of my amazing 10 year/1000 hour run in my RV4, till then here is a cool video of my other favorite (and also much overlooked) RV, the Three...

Default Great Videos

Hey guys thanks so much for posting up the videos. They sure do help keep me modivated! Iím getting close to being done just need to build up a paint booth and get her painted then out to the airport for final assembly. My fingers and cracked and bleeding from sanding fiberglass so I must be close! I did plumb up a fuel line the other and hit the starter switch for the first time and she fired right up! I was so shocked I actually left my finger on the switch way to long thinking there is no way it just started right up. Happy to say just one simple fuel leak at a lose transducer connection. I built The engine myself and made all the inverted oil lines so I was expecting at least one oil leak but so far so good. Here is my first RV4 video, just the build up and start of the engine.

Default RV4 Video (N147DL)

Here is a link to a video with my RV4 Solo that was actually a short film that was screened at a famous film festival. Hope you like it as much as I love the plane! http://www.flysolofilm.com/about.html.
