Default Integrated RV-14 Introduction Thread

I am sure this has been discussed and I just missed it.

I searched FAA records for recently registered A/C

I don't think you missed it, I haven't seen anything of an RV-14 either... What's going on at the Skunkworks? Anyone?

Now I know how those UFO nutters out at Area 51 feel...

We *know* something's going on, but we're not quite sure what and no one's got a photo.......


Yet!

My guess is an electric sailplane.

Wouldn't the (A) part of the 14a indicate both a tri and taildrager? Do sailplanes have both tri and tail wheels?

The reciprocating part kind of rules out an electrical aircraft, doesn't it? Single engine too, by the looks of it. Either way, this is exciting. I am hoping for a high-wing.

Just kidding. As for the high wing - who would have ever thought Cessna would build a low wing single? A high wing, fast, back country plane would be pretty tempting!
