Hello Tommy,

 

I'm in Elmore AL (between Wetumpka and Prattville) and am about to pull the trigger on a 801.  I was hoping for a 701, but this one has sort of fell into my lap.

 

Anyway, I'd be interested in gleaning from you.  I'm in the Anniston area alot as I work for Alabama EMA and am in the area quite often.  Are you willing to share your knowledge, insights, heartbreaks, triumphs, mistakes, fixes? 

 

Thanks and great flying!

hI Ulis,
I doubt I will get up there. I will be at SERFI in October and that will probably be my only outing this year.

Tom,
Are you planning to attend the mid Atlantic fly in at North Carolina in May?

Hi Tommy,

Actually I finished (nearly) my XL last year just about the same time the NTSB letter came out. All that remained before getting it inspected was a few plumbing issues from the wings to the engine compartment and instrument panel and adding all the markings required for certification.

After receiving the NTSB letter I decided (along with my wife) to ground the plane until the NTSB issues were resolved. This particularly included the aileron mass balance and stick gradient issues. I wasn't expecting a major redesign of the wing spars, but I appreciate the fact that that occurred.

My plan before seeing the FAA report was to install the upgrade kit and start phase I flight testing of my plane. Now I am not so sure. The FAA report seems to indicate there is a real need for further testing after the upgrade is finished.

Jimmy,
I found the gascolator that goes with the tanks.
Please send me your address and I will put it in the mail to you.
It is about a $60.00 item I think.

Hi Tommy, yes I am still at it, just slow. Life gets in the way sometimes plus we are enjoying the RV8 flying after 8 years of building.

Hi Pat,
Yes, it is fun to get out on the runway and play after all the work putting it together. Next, we will play in the sky.

Nice taxi Tommy, reminds me of when I was learning to fly, My Instructor made me learn to taxi like that until I could taxi from one end to the other without the nose touching or lifting off.

If I build another airplane she will be enjoying the view from a divorce court somewhere in SW LA.

I finished the forty hours today and I'm looking forward to fly-ins, airshows, and pancake breakfasts around the state. I also hope to visit some builders who are in neighboring states within reach. Rest assured, vigilance and continued tweaking are still on the agenda.
