Starting a thread as a common source for RV 10 hints.

Folks, feel free to add either a link to one of the prior threads, or just add your tip or watch out.

Default Rudder cables

Donít install the snap bushings in the guides for the rudder cables until you slide them over the rudder cable.

Default HS Inspar Rivet to Front Spar Installation

The 8 rivets fastening the center HS-905 nose ribs to the front spar to the HS-1004 inboard inspar ribs were a nightmare for us. We recommend using a really long rivet set on them. If you are like us, we had no clue the long set would require the gunner to push VERY hard to prevent damaging the heads. PRACTICE with the long set first!

Best of luck!
Mike

Default F1032 L R longerons

I just wanted to share with the community when creating the left and right longerons (F1032L and F1032R) for tailcone make sure you create mirrored parts. I accidently drilled the 1/4" holes on same side. This created 2 left 1032:-( See picture attached.

This made me have to buy another 98.5" piece of AA:-(
