Default 14 or 14A

So good news, and maybe some less than good news…

Got my fuselage kit for my RV-14A today! (Ordered in April).

Started unpacking and doing inventory and it looks like I somehow got an RV-14 Fuselage kit, not a 14A kit.

Does anyone have a list of parts that I will need to return to Van’s and what I will need to order.

Thanks,

-Dan

Give the folks at Vans a call - if they sent the wrong kit should be able to help you sort it out.

How do you know it is a 14 and not a 14A? Even a QB fuselage kit , I am not sure if there is any difference till you much farther in the build.

There isn't much difference in between the two in the fuselage kits. Read section 26-10 and 26-11.
