Default RV-3 Moved into garage...

We just moved our RV-3 restoration project from a metal pole barn without electricity/insulation/heat into my garage which can provide all those missing elements. I'm planning on moving the engine into the garage as well (from my hanger) and get after the rebuild in earnest now and hope to marry up the two by Christmas time...

Default Carbon fiber fairings

Nice looking project Doug. Did you encounter any regrets for using carbon fiber ? What fabric did you use ?

Paul...I'll have to try that again with a better address...should be a way to allow you see it without requiring a log in, etc...

You need to ask Peter Pendergast since his pictures show the nice carbon fiber type fairings...mine are just simple low tech. fiberglass...

Default RV-3A - imported and ready to fly

Hi,

well, it is still a project as I am waiting for paperwork so it fits to post here - but ready to fly now!!!

EDIT mid April: paperwork came in and plane flies - having F U N !!!

Vans RV-3A (both spar mods) with 51 hrs TT & since TOP overhaul and 51 hrs on new Catto prop, wing tanks, Dynon D10-A, 2x 5" PocketFMS/Easy VFR.






It is a snug fit for me with 6.15 ft and 210 lb but it works (well, I could get used to this in the RV-4 I had). Can´t wait to fly it - waiting for paperwork.

EDIT September: ... got used to it, still having a blast!!


Best, Heinz
P.S. Again: many thanks Smokey, Ron, Jesse and Brad.

Default ... will take a little while

Thanks, Louise. It will still take a little while for the paperwork to arrive however the Dutch authorities are nice to work with.

Will than explore the envelope step by step and take extra caution and conduct a ?semi phase I? even if not required.

Once flying I suppose I need to post in the ?Show us your FINISHED RV-3?section - can?t wait!!

Heinz
