Default It's Done: Presenting RV ZULU X

RVators,

After 3 years and 1743 Hours, allow me a minute of fame to showcase my RV10 Build. I am proud how she came out

All the build detail (from beginning to end) is in the 43pages of build log over here: http://www.avcom.co.za/phpBB3/viewto...96901#p1096901

Presenting ZU-LUX (aka RV ZULU X (X = roman ten))


I am happy how my interior came out too.


Little RV Zulu 7 next to its new Big Brother RV ZULU 10


The Panel while she was still in the garage, side upholstery covering the wires weren't installed at the time the picture was taken.


Got the PFA (proving flight authority) today, so Test flight this weekend if the WX holds. I already got the RV Grin, and I haven't even flown her yet

Kind Regards
Rudi

Can you see into the future with that panel?

What are you using for a transponder?

She looks great Rudi. You need to get her to the states and put her on tour. I'll buy you a steak.
