Default RV-12 Video - startup and taxi

Today finished closing things up after the DARs visit. Still had a few things to test on the Rotax - looking for leaks and asking the guys at KPTW to put a second and third set of eyes on the bird.

We ran it for the 2nd time this afternoon for 15 - 20 min, made some adjustments. Ryan shot this video on his I phone.

Flying soon!

To hear about performance using the three blade prop. Give us some details on the prop itself if possible. Your 12 looks great. Thanks very much for sharing.

Dave, it appears Al is quite the jokester, but was he really joking? I have learned, You have to watch the Rubins, both of them!
