Default A New RV-10 Builder Here

Thought I would let everyone know that I am now a proud owner of a partially completed RV-10 kit. It has QB wings and fuse, so it's pretty far along.

I have really enjoyed my 6A and have decided that the 4 seats or additional cargo capacity better suits my current flying. I will sell the 6A once the 10 is done and worry about missing the shear fun of tossing the little 6 around for fun. I don't think I can justify keeping both though.

I look forward to sharing ideas and more specifically leveraging the experience of those who traveled the road before me.

Larry

Default Another -10

Congratulations Larry, you will love the utility and comfort of the -10. I've been enjoying mine for a little over a year now and have already been as far as the Bahamas with the family. Drop me a line if you want to fly!

Larry,
I sold my 7A after 10 years and 1,000+ hours for a nice 10. My wife really wanted 4 seats or/and room for more stuff. I do miss the sportiness of the 7 but the 10 is perfect for our mission now. You are going to love it. If your ever in Western MI stop by (Z98).

Gary

I would love to if you don't mind me tagging along. I will PM you to get your number.

Good going Larry... exactly what I did last October...

My -6A will probably be for sale soon. My wife fell last year and is recovering from the insertion of a bionic hip joint, so it will be a long while before she can get into the -6A, so the Tiger will stay.
