Default SOLD RV-7 EMP-Switched to a RV-10 Chicago

Golden Rule- Ask the wife FIRST.
Get it in writing Maybe even Notarized .

Ordered the Empennage kit in February.
Got as far as rear spar and front spar.
Wife complaining every day, why am I not Building a 4 place a/c?

So... RV-10 Emp is on the truck and on its way.

All the 7 parts are boxed up and need a home.

Anything reasonable.

This sounds like authorization to spend more money. What could be wrong with that?

Default Same thing happened to me..

..when I was figuring out what to build. I really, really love the 7A, and it's what I would have built, had I been single, and not planning on kids at the time of my decision. I was on the fence and took a ride in the 10 before taking the plunge. It made me doubt the 10 even more, because the 10 was definitely not as responsive and agile as the 7 (by design). After the flight, I expressed my doubts and my wife responded with this question; "Are you building this plane for YOU or for US?" The deal was sealed at that point. I figured, hey, I just secured additional funding for my hobby!
