the end of the year, so it's
time for me to ask those who have been reading this webazine at the
rack for the past eleven months to please go through the checkout line so I
can buy some food, shelter and clothing (and insurance) for me and my
family. VAF is my full time gig, and like any small business if enough
people don't buy the products or services it eventually folds. The pie
chart has me worried a bit to be completely honest - the small slice is
donations. VAF isn't financially
sustainable at this donation level. It's insanely expensive to operate.
I try not to make too big a deal about the donate thing throughout the year,
as I'm sure you get bombarded from 10,000 other businesses. But, I need to ask
now so I can keep the business
afloat. Please pay if you use it.
Paying that light bill...the annual pledge drive.
is all the donate info (and bigger pie chart image). And thanks if you donate.
December 8, 2016. Issue
A quick status report on the back spasms I was having a couple of days
ago. Four people emailed with their experience at what helped, and a
book recommendation, etc. Thank you for that! Filed away in
the 'Personal Health' email folder.
I'm happy to report that the pain has subsided substantially. Most of the
day Wednesday I had no pain at all and even got in a little bit of work
on the RV. It's currently down for its yearly inspection, and today I
was feeling good enough to take off the cowling, spinner, wheel pants
and empennage fairing. I've contracted with my son to take out the
seats, floor panels and rear baggage compartment wall this weekend at
$10 per hour :-). He takes his driving checkride on Thursday and if he
passes he's cleared to go solo (after a call to State Farm). Obviously
he wants gas money :-).
By the time today's edition goes live, that Arctic front should have
arrived in the Dallas area. We are wrapping the outside pipes and I'm
running up to Home Depot this evening to get a new propane tank for the
heater out at the hangar. "Real" winter has apparently arrived…
Yesterday while I was out at the airport for a couple of hours
some of the usual suspects were doing a quick formation practice.
They made two passes down the centerline, and since I was out on the
ramp standing there anyway I thought I would pull out the iPhone and
shoot some video. No fancy editing, no intro or credits. Just the
two clips uploaded at 1080HD. The entire clip runs 44 seconds.
Sounds good with headphones...
Wiring Baja Design Squadron Pro
Q: I'm in the process of installing the Baja Designs Squadron Pro
LED lights into the Duckworks leading edge kit for my RV-10.
For those who have gone before me - a couple questions on wiring
1) Did you ground locally or back at the firewall? For those flying
- any evidence of noise for either method?
2) Did you use the included connector or cut/ splice the wires?
Thank you for your help!
BTW - the finish kit arrives tomorrow!! Time for more fiberglass

Forgotten mistake - opinions needed
I vaguely remember botching a rivet on the aileron a long time
ago. While re-installing them after doing the bottom skins, I saw it
and now need to fix it. Question is, what's the best way? It is the
last rivet on the inboard side closest to the trailing edge on the
