Where abouts are you Brian? I'm looking at placing an RV7a at Blackbushe for a potential share. Is that of any interest? (Spec pretty much as you described)

Would anyone be interested in sharing a glass panel RV7a (tricycle gear) based at Blackbushe?
This is not just a theoretical query
It would be for me and 1 or 2 others, depending on compatibility

I have an RV7 with a Lycoming AEIO 360 A1B6 engine with Sam James cowlings.  My current aero composite propeller is U/S and I'm looking for a replacement either new or secondhand.
I am looking at composite MT 72 inch 3-bladed propeller but they have a 16 week delivery time.
Any suggestions?

7  Classifieds / RV Related - Wanted / Garmin GTR 225A Radio test facility wanted
 on: 19.02.2020 at 11:48:28

Do you have a Garmin GTR 225A Radio installed in your Aircraft or one set up in a test rig on a Bench?
If so I would like to plug my Radio into your working installation in order to test it.
The fault on my Radio is an echoing feedback noise while transmitting on the ground so it is unlikely to cause any damage to your installation.
I am located in Southeast England but willing to travel a reasonable distance.
Thanks and regards,
Richard Shone (RV12)

Airframe is finished in white and blue metallic and is in excellent general condition,  G-SUTE has never been aerobatted meaning that there are no smoking rivets! It has always been hangared and fully covered to keep out the dust! As such all surfaces and exposed hinges etc are in clean pristine condition.
The engine is cleared to run on Mogas or or UL91. However it has used nothing but 100LL since new. Capable of 28 litres per hour fuel burn at 75% power and 22 litres per at 50% power.

10  Vans RV Discussion / Vans RV Construction / Elevator skin damage
 on: 05.08.2019 at 10:00:50 
Started by Michael_Dooley | Post by Michael_Dooley
Good morning all
I'm constructing an RV12 and starting on the empennage.
Checking some of the skins has revealed a couple of small dents in the elevator skins. Probably my fault.  
I assume that I should be ordering a new skin from vans or do you think it can be removed. Advice appreciated
Thanks in advance
ps I can't work out how to add an image so if someone could let me know I can upload one.
