Default Just ordered Empennage Kit on my way

Hello group,

I just ordered my empennage kit so after lurking for some time I am on my way and hope to meet new people and make new friends.

This will be my third airplane project. I currently built and I am flying 902AL which is a Zenith, CH650B air-frame (essentially the same as the RV-12) powered by a Lycoming 0235-N2C with MGL Avionics and Comm, uAvionix ADSB.

I love 2AL but I have decided I want to step up my building as well as piloting game.

If anyone has any newbie advice I am all ears.

Looking forward to the RV-Grin One Day.

Steve F.

Default Moving along.

Another quick update.

Here is the rudder masked, blue shot, then the clear.

Horizontal stab this week, elevators next week, and the wings are getting done after March break. The fuse will hopefully be done mid April.

Oshkosh is looking like a reality this year...hope to see you there Steve R!!
