Airborne!!! ...Dan Weyant 9A
At about 6:00 CDT this afternoon N96KD took to the sky for the
Everything worked great, and she just jumped off of the field. I've
got a few issues I need to work out before second flight, but
overall I'm thrilled with how everything went!
Day 22: St. Kitts ...Rosie
Today was our last day of vacation, and starting on Friday, 1
May, it all TRAVEL back to the States and eventually home…this is
the part of the trip I do not look forward to because it’s ‘back to
the real world…’
N728TT is Now an Airplane! ... Todd Stovall
Well, it took a while to get here, and my experience with the
Washington FSDO was a mirror of that journey, but I'm proud to
report that N728TT is no longer a project and is now the latest
RV-10 to join the fleet!
What is this material blowing by?
This is a new engine (IO-360 parallel valve, standard
compression, vetterman exhaust) put together by Aero Sport Power (65
hours so far). I have noticed some seepage on the number 2 cylinder
through 1) the hole where EGT probe is installed and 2) The exhaust
joint downstream that exhaust pipe assembly.
Embarrassing photo ...Jwputnam
I am learning about riveting the hard way I am afraid. I have
made more than a few ham handed riveting errors that show up as
dents and bruises, but I have corrected almost all of them. The
painter is going to have to do the rest I suppose.
One of them does concern me, so I am posting this photo for comment,
as much as it pains me to display it!

Why is my ventilation air hotter than ambient?
Can someone tell me why the air coming in the standard cabin
vents is hotter than ambient?
Before you speculate....take a temperature probe with you and stick
it in the vent while flying and compare it against a known outside
Is it heat of compression alone? boundary layer ingested air from
the cowling? heat leaking from around the cowling hinge (mine is
fairly tight but i guess it could still leak some)?
Alternator Fooled Me ...DanH
There I was, flying along, minding my own business, and I get an
"EIS VOLTS" warning. Uh oh, losing an alternator.
Status Report ...N546RV
Well, the wings are as done as they're going to be for the
foreseeable future. For the time being, I'm not going to bother
riveting the bottom skins. Keep these things open until I've got all
my plumbing and such finalized.
