Default Great!

Looks super. You need some tundra tires for up there in Alaska (or floats) .

Thumbs up Finished RV-8 ZU-NAB

Our RV-8 is flying!

My brother and I completed a standard kit (Serial # 82566) in seven and a half years and the first flight was on Friday 30 August 2013.
Test pilot Dawie van Staden flew her for an hour and only had a few minor squawks to report.


Taxing back to the hanger after the first landing


The aircraft has flown 15 hrs so far and the engine parameters are all good.








Thank you to VAF and everyone who contributed on these forums to make our dream come true!

My design. I like how it turned out.



It's just something I've been saying for years. Aerodynamics seem to follow both form and function.

Here is the model in the artwork. She doesn't seem to enjoy build as much as me? (Notice the pointing figure skyward)
