Best,
Great, Pierre. Thank you. Matt's unit turned out to have an issue so the 195 will be a welcomed addition. Just look up James Clark as he'll be our next transfer pilot. I assume it will run on battery power? The RV-1 doesn't have a cigarette lighter. If so, one of you will have to buy a bunch of batteries. As I recall, those suckers take something like 8 or 10 AA batteries.

Bonvoyage RV1!
A milestone in the RV-1 project - The RV-1 restoration, summer tour, and tribute to Richard VanGrunsven is truly a "community" effort at the highest level!
On a personal note, I'm really gonna miss the camaraderie at RV-Central. Thanks for hosting the restoration, Jay, Carol, and Patches!

Default 6 batteries.

Louise, the 195 has 6 AA batteries and I just replaced them.

I also have a mount that can be screwed/bolted in place and it has a power cord that can be hard-wired to a hot point/12 volts, in the -1. Acquired satellites quickly this a.m.

Best,

Yes the RV1 does have a cigarette lighter, I put it in there "just in case" someone wanted to plug in a GPS

Default RV-1 at KCSG

Hi y'all RV8 builder here... And local EAA member at KCSG. The RV-1 will be hangered in 3B, which recently birthed Lynn Hall's RV-9A 554LH (it's Lynn's hanger). For y'all flying in before the show, look for a rather large tent in front of the Flightways FBO, that, well resembles a wing. That's the EAA hospitality tent, and 3B is easy walking distance. Hope to see y'all ! Chris Cook N261RV reserved.

Default Thanks.

Hi Chris...thanks for the info and welcome to VAF.

I gave Lynn transition training here some time ago...great guy.

See ya tomorrow...this is my airplane:



BTW, the Garmin 195 that I'm bringing for the RV-1 has a power cord but the cigarette lighter plug has been cut off. If you could supply one it would be great and we could then have an operating unit on ship's power.

Thanks,

Gang,
The RV-1 will not make Columbus today (Friday).

Saturday and Sunday are unknown now, but I will update later.

James reported a good solid stumble, 2~3 seconds duration, on climbout at about 400 feet......so two left turns and back to the runway. The RV-1 mantra is "be conservative".

I'll have a team on it at first light tomorrow.

Hopefully pilots are being briefed on the fuel system.

The RV1 is a gravity feed system with an electric fuel pumpback-up: FUEL PUMP MUST BE ON FOR T/O, CLIMB AND LANDING.

There is no mechanical engine driven fuel pump.

Please install the above placard before further flight.

Not saying this is the problem but if you take off without the pump on, with the nose up attitude, you may experience an interuption in fuel flow.

Another operational FYI: Red light on far left panel is a low voltage monitor, it will go off at approx 13 volts. The vaccum pad gen needs approx 1800 RPM to produce this voltage so it will normally flash on the ground and go off in flight.

Default Dan's on it

I just talked with Dan and he'll put the placard in plus "interogate" the pilot about the fuel pump. It is great to have the plane with such a wonderful community to support the effort. I know Dan will put together the right team to figure out the next steps.

Dan also said last night's gathering was a great success and there must have been 500 photos taken. Hope to see some of them soon!
