Default I have a problem!

My RV-7 has not been gone more that 2 months and I have already watched all the RV-12IS YouTube videos and have the plans on USB in hand. Am I crazy?

I'm not sure the issues are related.

If you do choose to head down the RV-12 path, I think you'll be amazed at how quickly you can turn a pile of parts into an airplane.

The RV-12 is a sweet-flying little machine, to be sure. But maybe hold out for the RV-15?

If you had a drinking problem, would you go to a pub for guidance?

I had that same problem Brian. I felt it in the pit of my stomach when I watched my RV-10 fly away with its new owner. I thought I was done with aviation when I decided to sell. How wrong I was. Six months later Iím back at it building a -9A. Follow your heart. Life is short.

I suspect the occupants would have plenty of experience to rely on.

I am afraid the 15 is gonna come in about double the cost of a 12IS.
