Welcome to the RV-10 building gang.
There are several of us building RV-10s here in the Houston, TX area, who will be glad to answer questions or just discuss our projects. There are also several that are finished with their build and flying.
The EAA 302 chapter ( https://www.eaa302.org/
) that meets on the second Saturday of each month at Conroe airport has a large number of active builders, including several RV-10s. If you can make it, I highly recommend you attend a meeting to check it out and meet a few builders.
There is also a small group of RV builders who meet informally for lunch on the 3rd Saturday, but there are some months when we don't meet. Check the South Texas posting section here on VAFn for information on meeting and location a few days prior to the 3rd Saturday.
I'll send you a PM with my contact info in case you would like to discuss your new adventure.
Enjoy the build.
