Default Encyclopedia Galactica

Aloha All

the Encyclopedia Galactica (yes foundation reference ) is just about complete! otherwise known as the Wiki.

The new items cover everything in VAF RV14 that is not directly specific construction related questions. And wow do you folks have a lot of topics.

Good news is now you have an easy way to find all the topics on here.

Specifically look under General construction if you are thinking of or planning your build

Maintenance notes for ongoing or annual Mx

Avionics Kit has a bunch of Avionics threads in the first few pages.

BTW why does Garmin have like 4 times the issues/questions than Dynon?

The topics include:

Start here section - Basic info
Thinking of building more in-depth consideration
Build costs
Builder links
International issues
Shop tools shop setup
Aircraft dimensions ie shop size

Thank you! I don't have my tail kit yet, but I've read through the first several sections of the plans. Those tips and links from your Wiki version cleared up every "what the heck does that mean" question that I came across, which surely will save me a lot of time and headache when the time comes. Again, thanks!

(I also bought the thumb drive.)
