Default RV-7 in Australia redrv7.wordpress.com

G'day,

I've started a builder's blog for my RV-7. I have no idea on how to build and have not done anything like this in my life before. I'll be documenting my mistakes, learnings and successes.

redrv7.wordpress.com

Enjoy!
Gav

Welcome and G`day Gavin.

Wordpress is brilliant. My blog uses Wordpress with the Atahualpa theme.

What is more it is free!

Cheers

Hi Gav!
To build your own plane is fantastic. Hope to meet you in two years in Down Under.

I couldn't leave a comment on your site.

Default what are the chances...

I was looking on the SAAA site, who else is in Vic was stupid enough to build a -7 and invest as much as I am into it.

I found your blog, just two hours ago, was wondering where you were from.

So I guess I know now, over in the west.

Good luck Gav, there are quite a few folk in WA doing -7s you should try to meet up with them.

Nice use of WP.

Good looking site.

I use WP for mine as well and it makes the documenting very easy and the community keeps improving it.

Good luck with your build!
