Looking at your builder number you must have built that pretty quick! Who is holding on during the landing? Looks great!

Here's a few pics of my FLYING RV10. One year project from start to finish including paint. Inspected on 9 April '07 and 1st flight flight was the 28th.

I've put 10.1hrs on it the first week and will continue with the test flights squawks....period.

I need to say that this airplane is absolutely NOTHING like the RV4's, 6's, 7's, & 8's that I've reminds me of a flying Cadillac :^) !!

Performs 'as advertised'.....and then some!

Powered by a brand spankin' new Mattituck TMX IO-540. will be parked at our Ohio Valley RVators Formation Clinic next weekend.

Yes.....everything is for sale :^) .

This link should take you to a few pics:

All of the pics below were taken in the last few days:

Default 805HL FLIES!!!!!

I wanted to pass on a quick note to those interested in how my DAR
check and Flyoff went. I got DAR approval on Tues at 2:30. We put all
the fairings and inspection covers on and I was in the air at 4:30. I
flew 2.7 hours that day and developed a LOW oil pressure issue. I
called the engine builder on Wednesday to discuss it and he said is
needed a new spring and ball in the pressure adjustment cap. He Fedex
it to me on Thursday at noon. Come to find out what I really needed
was an aluminum SEAT washer that the pressure check ball fits into.
That SEAT came loose and fell out.........which is NOT suppose to
happen. The oil was leaking around the seat and registering LOW
pressure. After fully inspecting the motor to confirm it was NOT
making metal we FLEW a Baron to Omaha, NE to get the new SEAT, flew
home and the landing gear would not go down!!!!!
PLUS it burned 50 Gals. of fuel in 60 minutes. After cranking the
gear down and doing a fly by to verify it was down..........I got the
new seat in the plane. Viola.....66 PSI oil.........winds were 36 mph
45 degrees to the runway...........UP I went. I flew 3.6 hours in very
gusty landing I had full RUDDER and a 48 MPH GS
. I thought my ankle was gonna break with those gusts hitting the
rudder.......then you have to get it taxied with that nose castering in
the wind!
Friday was a good day..............9.0 hours flown..........Saturday
was great also..............flew 9.2 hours for a total of 25 hours in 4
days!!!!!! Oh we had a HOT mag....the P lead broke off.

I am now gonna go get some sleep.........until SUNRISE...........then I
have a few friends that want a RIDE!

I still find it hard to believe we got this bird flying and done
(painted with wheel pants)in less than 2 years. Oh Wet Compass yet. But I still would buy a good
handheld GPS before a $250 compass (JMHO)

If you are building ,.........keep bucking it is all WORTH IT! This
plane is UNBELEIVABLE in the air! See you all at OSH '07. Thanks
to all on this list who helped with friendly advice and counsel. I also
wanna thank those who MOTIVATED us to build a great plane on a BUDGET.
It can be done and done very respectably. Ask me AND Van! I did
spring for seat covers though unlike Vans plastic, over foam, wrapped
in Duct tape.
