To the moderators,
As I am going to be doing a W&B shortly I took some interest in this thread. Early in the thread there was an error in a post that limited the aircraft potential. Even though the error was found later on in the thread, I believe that errors of this type should be removed for safety reasons and also some readers may be inclined to stop reading the rest of the thread at that point and discount the RV14 as not meeting advertised specifications.
We should all be very careful about posting any specific weight and balance numbers that are significantly different then the factory numbers. Typically big differences are measurement or scale errors.
