Default First flight of new RV-9A in Russia

Last Thursday my RV-9A made its maiden flight. All went fine dispite a little trouble with instruments. That has already been fixed. Here is the short footage of 30 minute flight.

Excellent job. I like the paint. Is this the IO-340 I've been hearing Vlad talk about?

I bet someone is selling our RV technology to the Russians! I wonder who that could be?

Default Good job!

Very nice. I'm fairly sure you require an extra measure of dedication to build an RV there and yours appears to be an excellent example.

Default Congratulations!

Looks a bit colder there than when I took my RV for its maiden flight almost a year ago! Now the real fun begins, flying! Congratulations!

Yes, my 9 has been equipped with Titan IOX340. After all adjustments were done, it runs perfect.

I agree with you, the RV technology is a kind of national property of the USA. So, be assured that I've been assembling my RV strikcly according to the mentioned technology with all my creative approach
