So Wingnut - I'm guessing you're the guy responsible for putting together some pretty cool videos. Like 2014 Hornet Ball, for example? The Bullet Train segment - one of my favorites!
Nice work, both in front of and behind the camera.
And an RV-8 too!

Keep 'em coming!

Default Looking good!

Looking just as good as the first time I saw it at Kosh is 2013! Hope all is well.

Default Cest moi!

Doug,

That would be me! I'm glad you liked the videos and thank you. I've been a little overdue for more but we've been quite busy deployed and on detachment. I've got another Hornet Ball in the works as well as a mini documentary from our OIR deployment. Hopefully they are out before too long!

I'll be sure to give you a buzz in the Rhino next time I'm up that way!

Cheers!

Wingnut

I took it off and blended the gap, didn't like the way it looked! Wasn't sure what is was for anyway, seemed silly.

Are you kidding? You took off the rudder mass balance weight? It's there for flutter prevention!

I would strongly suggest you reduce your Vne while you build another rudder (per plans) and get it installed.
