I started this project due to family expansion (when we found out we were about to have our first child). We had a an RV-4 that flew us around the country for over 700 hrs and now the writing was on the wall to get ready for an upgrade.
The kit was ordered in May of 2010, and 22 Months latter it was in the air.
It is has instrumentation for IFR flying, 2-axis auto pilot, Hartzell BA prop, Garmin GNT650, Garmin Aera560, PS5000, Dynon Skyview, Integrated iPad for charts.
Cruise flight is 177-182 KTAS at 10,000 ft burning 11.0-11.5 GPH. Our 1700 ft grass strip is no problem even on hot days at gross weight.
