Default Midwest LSA expo

Any other 12 owners / builders going to the midwest LSA expo this weekend? It will be my first chance to see, sit in a completed 12. Looking forward to checking it out.

I will be there with the Van's demo RV-12. Hope to arrive on Wednesday evening, but the weather is looking like it will be Thursday afternoon due to a cold front between here and there.

The legacy RV-12? Not the RV-12iS?

Yes, the iS is back in Oregon and Vic will be flying the Garmin RV-12 N112VA.

I flew the iS back and forth to OSH. There are some definite improvements in the iS configuration, but they both fly the same. If you're thinking about either the iS or ULS RV-12, the one Vic is bringing and demo flying will still let you know what the airplane is all about.....the flying.

Hi Mitch, I'm headed to the factory from NY next week with the Mrs, to visit the factory and Synergy and was curious to see if it was there. I forgot to ask Jose when I last spoke with him. I was going to jump down to fly the with Vic, but the opportunity and time arose to visit OR. I'm glad I might get a chance to look at the iS, as we were unable to get to AirVenture this year..

We are looking forward our visit.

The iS is at the factory and would love to have you fly it. It will be here and waiting.

Really wonderful and silky-smooth 4-hour flight in the RV-12 up to KMVN this morning! I even had to hand fly it all the way as the autopilot wasn't working. Actually it was kind of a treat. Really a sweet airplane with awesome visibility!

The cool thing was that I had sent a message to Brian Hupe at Garmin regarding the autopilot. Lo and behold, Brian comes walking out to the airplane when I landed. One quick S/W download and the autopilot is now working! Most likely caused by me on the last s/w load, but that sure was great service! Kudos to Brian.

Vic
