Default Another RV Grand Champion

Just to let you guys know that our RV10, ZU-RVI has been awarded three trophies at this year's National EAA Convention in South Africa. We won the following:

Winner Best Metal Aircraft 2012
Winner Pertec Shield Best Homebuilt 2012
EAA Grand Champion Homebuilt 2012



We did not receive the trophies up to now hence the rather late placement of this message and picture.

Thanks guys - tell you it really makes all the sweat and 2000hrs of building worth while
I have also posted this to motivate others who are feeling that they are loosing the battle. I always say that it is like eating an elephant - just keep on going a small piece at a time and youwill get there.
