Very nice RV-4! Welcome to the world of RVs. There are plenty of RVs in central Michigan, and although you won't see many of us in the winter months, we will enjoy your company this summer!

Default More details on the yellow RV4 Fastback

Starting at the front: The spinner is a copy of the Rocket, shortened to a 13" dia. instead of 15". The prop is a Whirlwind 74 RV. The engine is a stock IO-360 180 h.p. I moved the instrument panel forward to the #2 bulkhead (like the Rocket.) No canopy frame would fit so I welded up a new one with 3" lower sides. I took it to Dayton and they formed a canopy to fit the frame (super people). I made foot wells for the back seat, not heel wells. I put the Rocket fastback on. I used no wing tips, just flat plates. I worked hard to keep it light. It's a little under 1,000 lbs. including electric flaps, trim and auto pilot. It outperforms my old '4 (same engine). It really rolls fast. I am very pleased. I like the '4 better than any of the RVs I have flown, including the RV-3s. Any questions -- contact Jim 317-718-three415.
