Default And So It Begins

From Lurker to Builder. I've been doing a lot of reading here and wanted to finally introduce myself and my building partner as we start construction on our RV-10, builder number 41373. Got the shop set up and attached the picture mostly to learn how to do it. We're ready to rivet together the VS and at the point of dimpling the rivet skins; trying to decide if we're going to add rudder trim. Anyway, I'm in (very) south Georgia so hello and thanks already for the tips so far. Partner is Rick Gilbride, owner of an RV-6.

Dave,

Welcome to the RV-10 community. What part of Georgia do you live? There very well may be another RV-10 builder near you?

As far as rudder trim go, I highly recommend Aerosport Products Rudder Trim. It's a five minute install and you don't have to cut into your rudder.

Default Welcome

Dave,

So, another one (or should I say two) have "pulled the trigger." My wife and I live in Colorado, but I have family in Georgia and it's where I grew up. I'm glad to see I will potentially have yet another person to fly with when I'm home for visits. At least once I get my bird flying, that is...

Vlad, down here in the South more than likely, guns and ammo.
