Default RV-10 #41814

So, after many years of lurking on the forums, taking the sheet metal class, and dreaming, a visit to Oshkosh finally got me to pull the trigger! I ordered my empennage kit at the Van's tent during the show, and got a flight in the demo plane just before the airshow TFR on Friday.

The tailkit arrived yesterday, and I'm starting inventory tonight!


A huge thank you to DR for making/maintaining/living for this forum! Dues, backpay, and a voluntary late fee for freeloading for so long ( - sorry!) are on the way. Also, thanks to everyone who posts their stories, hard earned lessons, and building motivation here!

I'll (try to) keep this thread up to date with pics and status!

Thanks Josh! Looks like I used the private link instead of the public link from the Google Photos page. How about now?

That's not too far... As I get going with the build, and if you're ever in the area, you're welcome to swing by and take a look!

Congrats and welcome!

I am right around the corner and also building an RV-10. I am better than half way through the fuselage kit now. First time builder and building very slowly. Feel free to look me up if you have any questions or want to see something up close and completed.

Talking RV-10. Trigger Pulled!!

Tyson / Brendon:

RV-10 kit / tools arriving Wednesday. May be good to link up as it looks like we will be going through the process at the same time. I'm in the automotive industry and often at the Big Three so in the area occasionally and lived in Rochester Hills for a few years. Also have a co-worker in Michigan who built a 10 and Kit Fox that just won an award this year at AirVenture. Plans to fly over to Toledo in his 10 (a beauty) and help with the build. Keep in touch.

Mark
