Default Robs RV-7

Well I'm officially a repeat offender! I just placed an order for the RV-7 tail and wing kits. Its been 15 years since I started my -3B, 10 years since I finished it, and 2 years since I sold it. I dabbled in an Extra 300 for about a year, but the lack of performance in every area other than aerobatics drove me to sell my share. I kicked around the idea of a bush plane, but again I had a feeling the lack total performance would lead to the same frustrations I had with the Extra. I'm excited to be back and looking forward to another build!

The minimum number of planes one should own is one. The correct number is n+1, where n is the number of planes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of planes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

Welcome back to the club brother. Hope you have more room than you did during your first build. All the best.

Rob, I just texted your post to a guy on our field who flies both an Extra 300 and a (very) big-tired Maule, and has been showing some interest in my RV-7 project. To paraphrase your signature, the proper number of RVs on an airport is one more than you already have!

Its good to be back! Mark I like that pointy aluminum spinner on your 14A. I saw a pic of it here someplace.
