So, after many years of lurking on the forums, taking the sheet metal class, and dreaming, a visit to Oshkosh finally got me to pull the trigger! I ordered my empennage kit at the Van's tent during the show, and got a flight in the demo plane just before the airshow TFR on Friday.
The tailkit arrived yesterday, and I'm starting inventory tonight!
A huge thank you to DR for making/maintaining/living for this forum! Dues, backpay, and a voluntary late fee for freeloading for so long (
- sorry!) are on the way. Also, thanks to everyone who posts their stories, hard earned lessons, and building motivation here!
I'll (try to) keep this thread up to date with pics and status!
