Default RV-14A Aerobatics

Hey All,

I thought I'd share a video I took recently playing around doing some aerobatics in my RV-14A. I find the RV-14 does sport acro about as well as the other side-by-side models (with a much larger aerobatic useful load)

Very nice, envious.

I have only done rolls and few simpler stuff which it does it very well.

Jared:

Do you have an inverted oil system? (I would think most of these donít need it, except perhaps the half Cuban 8).

Nice job, by the way.

Cool first RV 14 in competition?

Nice video. With a little coaching you'll be ready for the IAC contest in Rome, GA, 17-20 Oct, and have the honor of being the first RV-14 to participate. Should be a good gathering of RVs and other really good friends that fly other things.
Cheers,

Yes, KPUJ has waiver-ed airspace for aerobatics (Aerobatic Practice Area)

Maybe...I've definitely been bit by the acro bug, although I'm far more interested in getting involved in airshow flying (small stage shows) then competition. I've watched all you videos on YouTube over the years, helped me really appreciate what RVs are capable of!

Nice job, by the way.
I installed a Half Raven system (also had an oil accumulator but removed it). The oil pressure doesn't go much below 50 psi during a Half Cuban. The negative G is pretty brief. The hammerhead is were I see the lowest oil pressure, sometimes going down as low as 35psi for a moment of two depending on how hard I drive the nose down in the vertical.

Default come visit

Jared,
Just put the Rome contest on your calendar, and come watch. I went to two contests as a visitor before I pulled the string and competed. Our IAC chapter 3 out of Atlanta has periodic practice sessions, and we can put you on our notice list of when and where if you like. Just use my e-mail address. Fun, fun, fun, with your new toy,

Nice video...it inspired me to work on the plane last night and get it another couple hours closer to upside-down.

I am still torn on any kind of supplemental oil systems for my RV-14, due to reports of limited space to mount anything. I didn't see pictures on your build log of the Half Raven or oil accumulator. Do you have any pictures or a hint at how you mounted that stuff on your RV-14A? I'd like to put in a Half Raven but I don't know if it will require drilling the IO-390 sump or moving the battery off the firewall or anything like that.

Of course you are... the ego stroke of airshows is way better than the ego bruising of competition.
