Default Another RV Takes To The Sky!!!

This past Friday Greg Cameron's 11 year RV-7A project saw some wind under its wings for the first time!!! Aside from the normal heat issues, the flight was flawless. Its powered by an ECi-IO-360, and Whirlwind RV-200 Prop. Behind the Panel is a VP-X, AFS 5600, GTN-650 and GPS-696. Waiting on the ever delayed TruTrak Gemini series to replace the DGII. Congratulations Greg!!!

Then again I'm kinda bias when it comes to yellow RV's

Default Nice RV7

That is a sharp paint scheme.

The panel is very nice.

What is the reason for the box separating occupants legs?? Large holes/ weight- but what is it for???

Nice plane.

That box holds the batteries, its all the way up at the firewall, but looks closer in the photo.
