Default What did you do with your RV this long weekend (7/2 - 7/5/2021)

With your permission, I'll start...
Got the finished fuselage out of the paint booth; the canopy skirt is next. When the canopy is finished it goes on the fuselage and they both go to the hangar!

Got my wheel pants mostly on. Just have intersection fairings to do (which is why the mains aren't primed yet). The ball is even still centered!

30ish LOP at 60% power is now 12 knots faster for me at 152 KTAS burning 7.5 gph. I don't know how that stacks up with others but I'm happy with it.

Cleaned the bugs off the wings -- all of them -- and re-arranged cables for the video camera. Way too exciting, I know. More bug cleaning today. Might go for some actual IFR.

What a sharp looking airplane. I cant wait to see it at Osh before the paint covers up that really nice metal working.

I left Oke City in my new RV14A and flew to Saint John Arizona for gasoline. Consumed some vending machine food and then flew to my hanger in Borrego Springs. I love the 14A so much more than the 10. I feel like Iím flying a Mercedes compared to an F250.

Default 500

This weekend the cowl is off, loving up the engine bits for a few days when I have some time.

On the non-RV front, I logged my 500th hour of in-the-sim, on-motion, running-the-emergency-checklist jiggles and shakes at the part time side hustle. 192nd client support session yesterday 0630. Done in 1.3 years. Starting to actually get it...
