I can?t wait to impress the neighbors! Sounds like I should just do what Van?s suggests. Yea I plan on QB fuselage to save some time but slow build wings to save some money. Thanks for input.

Ha! Most folks order their avionics and are ready for an upgrade to the latest gizmos before their first power up. At your pace you won't even need a SOFTWARE UPDATE before your first flight!!

Great progress. Thanks for sharing and for the extra jolt of motivation!

50+ hours in it and then decided it needed an "Avionics Upgrade" because I evidently like cutting/crimping/cussing more than flying...
Dues paid 2021

I've been making some progress. It's painted, I have most of the wiring done, and my interior will be here next month. I just ordered an ACK ELT E-04, I'm hoping It's compatible with the Safefly 2020 GPS I have installed on my GRT Horizon 10.1.

You do have to match drill and debur the entire RV-14 kit ... it's more evolutionary than revolutionary ...
