Default Higgs Powered RV-10

It's been about 18 months since a story came out about the Higgs V-4 installation progressing in an RV-10.

Anyone know if it's flown yet?

Maybe Ross is talking about this? I don't see a joke.

You would have to know some of the personalities involved, and their previous histories, to fully get that joke - but the gist of it involves a long history of vaporware products, extended and overextended build and testing timeframes, and an excess of marketing.

This is a really pretty piece of marketing. I want to see the hardware working.

Karl Grove in California was talking about this a year and a half ago. Wondering if the project is still ongoing or shelved?

Pre-selling something that hasn't been flight proven yet apparently seems a bit premature to say the least.

The project always seems just another year away and is beginning to sound like Zoche or Deltahawk...
