Default RV-8 Gas run video

Thought I would post this video to take you along on a flight to go get some fuel at BLI from a private strip called Meadowmist. The gopro is strapped to my hat in the attempt to put you in the drivers seat while I run my mouth a bit.

2002 RV8
IO-360 with constant speed Hartzell
Mode S/ traffic
WX 500
Trutrak Sorcerer Autopilot
LASAR ingnition
62 Gallon fuel=10 gallon Tip Tanks
430 TT since new
VM1000 engine monitor
IFLY GPS for information and maps

Thanks for all the information this site provides. It is invaluable to any RV builder/owner/buyer. Thank you so much for taking the time to post. Ed

Default Thanks!

I guess I don?t know what makes a good video, so often I find myself jumping ahead on a 3 minute video to hopefully get to the good part, This was a very good video, nearly a half hour and watched every second. Thanks for sharing!
