Congrats on the slip! Spent some time looking at your web page, great site and a great project. Bookmarked a few ideas for ours as well. Good luck on the first flight.

Default Congratulations on moving to KLZU!

Sorry I missed the party, I was out of town at a buying show for my business.

Default Congrats


Congrats!! looks great!!Enjoy your first flight, and then you will want to fly it every minute you are awake! Phase 1 is much more rewarding than I thought it would be as I did it in 11 days.

Default OZRV10 Transported to Airport

Well today I transported my RV-10 to the Bacchus Marsh Airport from it's home in my garage.

I am in some ways very sad to see it go to the airport as it has been so close for so long, I now feel like I have sort of abandoned it.

However, over the next 4-6 weeks I will be in preparation for the CofA and test flights. Most wiring has been completed and conduits already run so it should come together quite quickly.

I want to thank all of those who lent a hand today. Firstly Dad (aka. Geoff Long). He has basically been great. And I can't have done without him. Paul McVitty, who has helped a lot on the wiring and the electronics and other varied help during the past two years. NOTE: he has got together a good set of NAV's and Strobes with controller ready to kit up and sell. Look out for these in the coming weeks.

Peter Clark, a mate that has always been there during the build with help whenever asked. Andrew McIntosh, supplied all the packing blankets and unbridled commentary :-) also helped ....

Gess and Brandon, without Gess it would not have got started, and the help today was fantastic.

And obviously, my wife Jacquie and daughter Jamie. They have been stalwarts of support during the project. Thanks.

I always love shots like this because I think about the reaction from neighbors or people driving down the street when they suddenly see most of an airplane emerge.

I felt exactly the same way. All of a sudden my "buddy" in the garage was sitting lonely-like in a big tin box at the airport. Took me nearly a month to get used to walking into an empty garage.

Finished up the top skin today & decided to put some additional pieces on just because I could. I felt like a 6 year old on christmas morning.
