So last thurs on the 30th I got a call from my wife telling me "Its here, It's here!!" And so it was, the empennage: My march Christmas present.
Now number one I can't believe what's in the boxes is +6 -3 G rated after I get through with it. Maybe it will be +1 -.5 after I am through...
So I am working diligently and one week and one day later I have a horizontal stabilizer and a vertical stabilizer!! So I have to ask since it varies SOOO much...
How am I doing on time? If y'all come back with "you should be done in 3 years at that pace" I'm just going to cry... I like the build BUT I wanna fly!!
My daughter seems to be saying "Look and what my daddy can build! All I thought he could do is sandwiches..."
Oh and by the way Van's called and they seem to have an extra QB wings and fuselage sitting around collecting dust!
"Well sure I will take it Anne!" I thought I was going to have to wait 60 days for the QB.
So before I even started my empennage some nice Philippino was whipping my fuse and wings into place!
Tony Partain is already set up to bring it to me no crate included. Whew....
One last thing, Bruce on VAF, Boomer as he is known to some of you, loaned me his pneumatic squeezer for my build. What a great guy!
He also gave me my first RV flight and took me over that day to work on the RV-1 and be part of history with Jay, Walt, Bruce and
picture man Ernie! Great community and people here.
I can't wait to fly!!!
