After four years of building-fun, it's now time to get some flying-fun.
Initially I planned five years to build my RV-7, but the Corona lockdowns
in the Netherlands saved me a lot of commute time, which I could spent
on my RV.
Since I've never flown an RV-7 and only have 80 hours (65 Cessna 150,
15 in a Cub for tailwheel conversion), I thought it might be prudent to ask
a retired Dutch Airforce pilot (who also flies an RV-7), with me on my first flight.
Oh also, this is the first RV-7 in the Netherlands with a ULPower 520iSA
engine. It's a really light 6-cylinder engine with a lot of power.
I had to shift the engine forward (and extend tho cowl) to get the CG right.
Here's the first flight of PH-MNX.
The Grin at the end says it all!
