Default RV10 build by Vlad

Hello everyone!

I just ordered my tailcone/empennage kit for RV-10 and can't wait to receive it and start my project.
I am sure there will be tons of questions from my side, so for now I read this forum and trying to remember as many things as I can

By the way I am based in Canada (British Columbia).

Congrats on jumping in the deep end of the pool with us.

"Do something everyday" is probably the best advice you will ever get.

Default ...and

Set up a Cuss Jar in your shop.

Each time you cuss, put a dollar in that jar.

When you get to the Avionics purchase, empty the jar...

And you will be AMAZED how fast that jar fills when working on:

The cabin top

The doors

The wheel pants

The cowling

The inlet ramps

Yee Haa!

Привет Влад!
Believe or not but you are one of these guys who inspired me to build my own RV aircraft
I actually read lots of your trip reports here at this forum as well as on some Russian aviation forums!
I am from Vancouver (Lower mainland) area. I know you been here during some of your "cross North America" trips!
Many years ago (in 90x) I was also in ВВС РФ
If you plan to visit our side of the Canada just let me know and I will be glad to meet with you in person!

Guys!
Thank you for welcoming me here at this GREATEST source of information for all RV owners and builders.
I am sure that I will have tons of questions and even more.
I know how to use Search button, so for sure will try to find me answer before posting a question

Will keep updating here in this thread about my build status.

Bob - how do you do the accounting when one strings 4 or 5 cuss words directly together?
