Construction on my RV-6 'Flash' began in January of 1996, with the first flight in September of 2002.
She is a standard build
kit with manual flaps and electric pitch trim. Regular old carburetor,
180hp engine and a constant speed prop. We've put close to 1,000
flight hours on her to date and are always fiddling with something: the
panel, the interior, messing with the engine, etc.
My A&P, IA is Randy 'Monkey' Richmond. He does the
annuals, even though I can legally do them myself. His contact
info top right.
The first panel had a
traditional six pack instrument cluster and an MX-20 MFD.
The second generation utilized
a Garmin 496 handheld and had a dual axis autopilot.
The third panel was IFR with (2) approach-certified GPSs.
Fourth panel is hard core IFR and adds a 2nd and 3rd Garmin G3X
and does away with about ten pounds of wire from previous items no longer in
Garmin Pilot on an iPad mini in late 2014 do display IFR
