Depends on if you are ready to quit drinking or not.

Brian,

I'm sure someone around you has an RV-12 and would give you a demo ride.
Fly it first! I'm sure then you will know if you are crazy or not.

They are all about the same distance from me. KMOR is where I used to be based.

Exactly. He’s not looking for guidance, I think he’s looking for justification.
Brian - you have been down this road before - you are justified. You’ve done the research, you know your goals and desires, you don’t need any of the RV addicts here (including me) to tell you what to do. You already know the answer……. go for it.

Default Seven Gone, 12 next

For me the decision was to fly or not to fly. I had to downgrade to Sport Pilot. I miss the XC but other than that, the 12 is a genuine RV and I agree with those that tell you to go fly one. I did and that was enough. It is a joy to fly.

But if you still want 7ish performance, give it some thought.
