Default another newbie

Hello,
My name is Jim and I have purchased a partially complete (40% complete 80% to go) RV12 .I am CERTAIN I will need lots of advice! While I await delivery in January, I would ask for a little help:
I bought the plans thumb drive , but have been waiting a week for it to arrive. Does anyone have a digital set of plans they could load to dropbox, etc.for my review until plans arrive?
Thanks for all the future guidance.

Jim, welcome to VAF. You're going to love the 12. Good advice to get yourself up to speed on the service bulletins. I would suggest printing them out so you can go through each one when your project arrives, and make sure all of the applicable ones are done.

In addition to Service Bulletins, go through the list of Notifications on Van's website at: http://www.vansaircraft.com/public/service-rv12.htm

There are many enhancements and upgrades noted on this site that you may want to incorporate in your RV-12.
