The only vinyl is the registration. It was shot in white JetGlo, then gold stripes shot and masked, then shot in red. No clear coat, due to weight. Quality of work decide! I'll call before we come for lunch.

This photo by Jeff Bertsch and this one by Ron Townson inspired me to post a similar one, taken last summer by a friend of mine (so I got to be in it!). N611RV has been sold and flew away, but I might as well keep reminiscing about the wonderful times we had together... And the airplane in the background, I presume, needs no introduction

Hi, Just wanted to check in. I'm the proud new owner of an RV6-A. I'm not the builder, but I had previously built an O-235 powered Kitfox Series 5, which I sold a couple of years ago. I've been wanting an airplane better suited to long trips, and had been looking at RV7's, and I went to take a look at this airplane so I might have a basis of comparison between the two models. Once I saw the amazing build quality of this airplane I knew I'd be hard pressed to find one as nice. Plus, the price was right. The airplane is powered by a Lyc. O360 with a FP prop and was finished in 1999. It has only 215 hours on the engine. The panel is a bit dated, but I'm planning a refresh in the future. Right now, I'm trying to solve an issue which as developed with the Electroair ignition. I'll post a question about that on the General forum.

I've been lurking the forum for awhile now, but I'm looking forward to contributing more in the future.

All the best,

Default C-FUIP it flies, it flies!!!!!!

Hi gang, I'm pleased to say that after what has to be one of the longest builds on record (started in 1994) my RV-6A took to the air on July 29th.

I have since accumulated 33 trouble free hours and the restrictions have been removed and I have my unrestricted C of A.

See my 15 minutes of fame at the link below.
