Congrats Andy! The plane sounds great on takeoff in the video. I never get tired of that sound


Myron, I love the paint job!

Congrats Andy, looks like a nicely built airplane! Love to hear about the folks plugging along not giving up on builds. Gives me confidence and reassurance that we all work at our own pace and that's perfectly acceptable.

Signed off Phase I on Friday! Flight testing has gone well, with surprisingly few issues to chase down. At this point, the largest issue I can find to obsess over is a noisy intercom. Amazingly good airplane we have here. Yesterday we celebrated with breakfast at the Salem Air Park/ Skyline Diner. Caleb tossed it all back up on the way home, properly baptizing the airplane.



Today, we visited the grandparents in Ohio. Dad was in aviation one way or another his entire career, and it meant a lot to me to show him the airplane. The local airport has a 2000' sod runway, which is child's play for the RV-10. I am having fun exploring the corners of the flight envelope.

Having learned my lesson yesterday, the boys are now trained to place a towel in their laps at the first sign of choppy air. Boys are whupped after a day a riding the ATV at the grandparents farm.



I've been around airplanes for a long time and am not easily impressed, but this airplane is very impressive. Keep building guys, it is so worth it.....

Default Shoulder Belts Appear Inadequate

Andy,

Congrats on the milestone.

I so hate to be that guy, but the first thing I thought when I saw your photo of the little guys was just how worthless those shoulder belts would be in a crash. I recall at least one case where an adult member of this forum was lost due to inadequate shoulder restraint. I know, for example, that child seats for cars need the shoulder belts set at shoulder height in order to do their job. Again, sorry to be that guy.

Default N102KT flies!

I am happy to report that today was the day N102KT took flight under my control! Wow what an experience! 4.5 years and plenty of sweat equity later, the plane lived up to all expectations and flew like a dream. It's a pleasure to join the ranks of the others who have completed their kits. I thank everyone on VAF for their help throughout the project. I can only hope to now pay it forward.

David, Big Congrats on the new fledgling

I think this qualifies as an "RV Grin" for sure.
