Frankly, I like food and think that for a productive RV experience, food must be a part of it. Keep it up, Steve. I'm interested in your conclusions regarding your favorite pizza.

On my VAF builder blog, here, every once in a while I mention something that I've baked. Since my RV-3B project is taking longer than I'd anticipated, for me baking bread is something that gives near-instant gratification. It helps keep me sane for my RV-3B construction.

Since this thread is primarily about Steve's printed RV parts, how can we begrudge him a few posts about something else we all share? Who knows - maybe he'll print a pizza oven for an RV one day.

I'm interested in reducing drag and was thinking about the tailwheel steering springs. Has anyone created a "bullet shaped" (for lack of a better word), open ended fairing that would fit over the spring but leave the aft end of it open? Seems like 3d printing would be a perfect application for this.

And yes i know all about the rocket link, and so on. I like the spring setup myself
