Default after 20 years #24483 flew today

After 20 years of off and on again building #24483 RV6A flew today for the first time.

It is powered by a Honda Civic 1.8L engine with a T3/T/4 turbo.

It flew great. For those that do not know I have a active thread in the "Alternative Engines" section of VAF.

Here is a video of the flight.

Excellent. Way to stick with it. Good to see some new 6s getting completed.
Now a new chapter starts with flying.

Default Tires?

Well done Charlie, the older kits are a lot of work, plus the extra effort for the engine. I'm still a way behind you with my kit!

What wheels and tires do you have on the mains, as they look bigger than standard in the photo?

Paul.
