They were a hit at Joe Nall.. What a great time we had flying these down there . We had a total of four aircraft on the flight line. Here is a shot of some of them!

Swapped out the spinner for a three bladed Falcon Spinner and Prop. They both come out of the mold with Gelcoat white pait on the outside.

The airplane flew very well! The original RV4 Naca specs were used to design this wing. Very light wing Loading. At 42 Lbs it takes off in Fifty feet or less. Once airborne its very nuetral. Had to trim slight elevator down. ( needs a liitle more nose weight). You can float it around relatively slow or open the throttle and it moves pretty good. Landing it wants to realy float. Need to idle down on the downwind leg and went to the first notch of fllap, Then Base to final full flap approach at idle and it sits down nice on two wheels. Tail wheel sits down after a few soconds down the RWY. You can really tell how much it want to float.Flaps are only needed for drag more than lift. It really does fly like a big trainer but it loops and does very nice 4 or 8 point rolls. LOL
