Default cowling??

Just wondering which cowling that is? Plane looks great. Very well thought out with the details. Amazing!

N880EE lives on the west coast of CA. I like SNF but those XCountry flights are more comfortable in the RV-10. Nice to have choices. :-). www.PaintTheWeb.com/RV-10
The cowl is the extended James cowl with nice baffle system. No plenums for me. Extended cowl with to ~4 prop extension.

Default Air to Air photos

We shot some air to air photos over the weekend. Turned out OK.

Default Gotta take it to the show

Gorgeous photos! Looks like maybe Morro Bay? Is it?
SnF too far, then how about Chino in May?

C'mon, Robin...modesty is a very becoming trait, but these photos are much better than "OK". They are Van's calendar-worthy!

John,
It's not that SNF is too far, I have attended SNF twice. It's that on a long X-Country the RV-10 is just too comfortable to leave home. Chino is a possibility as I have come to CNO 2 of the last 3 years. Last year I took the -10 and in the ~4 hours I was parked a swarm of bees took residence in my tail cone and there were literally thousands starting a new hive near the -10 empenage inspection plate. My only solution was to fly home and see if they could hold on. About half did but by the next day they decided to choose a home that didn't move at 200 MPH.
I will attend Chino this year if I am not traveling. Chino puts on a solid airshow and a nice selection of RV's.
And yes the area is Morro Bay around the point past Avlia Beach and down to Pismo Beach.

Moose,
Thanks. The best part about the photos is that they are all taken within 8 miles of my home. I am very fortunate.

You guys are forcing me to post a few more photos... Thanks for all the kind words.

Love the faux tailhook on the fuselage! Nice touch.
