N124F is out of Phase 1 and is now free to roam (first flight 2/7/2022). One cross country McKinney TX to Booneville AR. Several flights now with my son. Awesome! Kit 1705 only took me 32 years to complete. (Lots of work, family, and other airplanes required my time :) )

Well done, Brad. That's a beautiful airplane.

ECI Titan (I)OX-360
AFP Fuel Injection
Catto 3-Blade
Dynon Skyview (classic)
Dynon 2-axis autopilot
MGL-V6 Comm
Fly LEDs lighting
Oregon Aero leather seats (VERY comfy)

Cruises 162kts TAS, 8500ft, 55% power, 6.5 gal/hr. I can go faster and burn more gas, but why bother? Nice aerobatic performance, though not as effortless as my Pitts was. I can carry a 220lb passenger with full fuel which is better than I feared.

Good for you. You're getting close to Dave Anders fuel economy..... http://cafe.foundation/v2/pdf_cafe_apr/RV-4.pdf

Whoa! If you aren't dressing up as Santa and taking kids for rides you're not living up to that paint job! Awesome.
Thanks. I was giving EAA Young Eagles flight with my last airplane. However, some overzealous kids make me nervous in a tandem airplane. I know I can take the rear stick out. Perhaps that's what I'll do next :)
