Default First RV-10 project in Chile

Dear friends I wanted to show the first Rv 10 project in chile.

we are building the vertical stabilizer and the rudder.
We hope many tips for having a successful home built aircraft

Yes you can! its all about utilizing your space. It does get alittle tight in there width wise, but in your case the length makes up for it.

Funny, and true!

Nice Shop guys, looking forward to seeing your progress. It looks like you have access to steel. That should come in handy. By comparison aluminum works like hard butter.

Keep us posted (with pictures)!

Default Congrats!

on the start of your RV10 build. You have done a good job getting organized in your shop. I like the setup and think that it's possible to build in there (at least the empennage) without problems. When you get to the wings, you will need a stand and will have to build vertical (which you do for most of it anyway). Fuselage and canopy top will be a challenge, but could be ordered as QB. Keep up the good work. Your Vertical Stabilizer looks nice.
