Default RV-8 - #83674 - N8SA

I am building a RV-8 and have reserved the tail number 8SA. I have been documenting the build so far in time lapse video on YouTube. The Horizontal Stab and Vertical Stab videos are just the time lapse video, however moving forward I intend to try and make the videos a little more interactive and informative for those that wish to follow along in my build. This is the first plane I've build and have so far learned a ton, with plenty more mistakes to go, I'm sure!

Subscribed to this thread. I can't tell you how useful it is to have someone in the same general part of a build that is documenting their work via video.

Thank you!

Default RV-8 Rudder Update

Just posted my latest video of my RV-8 Aircraft build! watch, like and subscribe for future videos! This video and forward rather than just the time lapse I actually explain a little more what the process is that I'm doing so it is easier to follow along. Enjoy!

Thanks for the video, definitely agree that's the way to go with the repetitive stuff sped up like that.

Makes it easy to follow along.

Default Priming Video

Latest update to the build (video is a few months behind the actual process, more videos to follow.) But I decided to video the process and methods I use with the Stewart Systems to clean, etch and prime my interior parts. I will also include this video in the primer section.

Default Finally back in the shop!

Been away from the build for far too long, but here's the latest, preparing the Right Elevator sub-assembly, I also made a mistake on the counterbalance assembly that I explain and show what I did to remedy it the second time around...
