N214ST (Revolution Aviation kit) was signed off as airworthy in May, 2015, with the first flight occurring at Williston, FL. The plane is now at its home base in North Carolina, and I currently have about 70 hrs total time.
It has a Lycoming IO-360, dual e-Mag electronic ignition, and a Whirlwind 200RV constant-speed prop. I designed my panel using a modified Glasair, 5-insert frame, and added a Dynon 10” touch, Dynon 7″, and Dynon 4″ EFIS’, with back-up steam gauges and a Garmin 430W. It is fully ADS-B compliant using Dynon electronics. I wired the panel and fuselage myself, and added upgrades such as electric flaps and trim.
Due to a number of life-distracting issues, with many starts and stops, the project took me 15 years to complete. On a recent trip to the 2016 Oshkosh airshow, the plane averaged 185 KTAS cruise between 10,500 and 11,500 feet. Not bad for a fixed gear plane! Great plane, great avionics, great support from Revolution Aviation! Will be adding stripes in the near future.
