Default Congrats!

With the record speed you built that thing I wouldn't be surprised if you finish your 40 hours Phase One in 8 days

Flight testing in phase 1 should have been 5 hours on an ELSA. Mine was.

Mel? WTF?

No problem fitting. Before purchasing the 12, comfort and performance was the criteria before ordering. So a year ago at Oshkosh I sat in Van's Blue RV12 at the show. I did remove the wedge under the seat, "I got the pre-RV grin and ordered one". Even after removing the seat wedge to get more head room and it was still very comfortable.

About a 2 months ago I did transition training and with an instructor about my size. We both fit in his RV12 no problem. We were just under gross with great performance and comfort (on a hot day).
Also the DAR was short
