FREDERICK, MD

RV 10-30

Work continues on the RV-10, although at a much slower pace.  Steve reports that the COVID RV-10 workforce has been effectively reduced to Steve.

Even with the greatly reduced workforce, progress is still measurable, and work continues every day.  Milestones reached in the past month:

 

The Wings are in Steve’s garage, and they get attended to for a couple of hours every evening.  Recent developments include:

Wing rough in wiring is complete; The autopilot and trim services are installed, tested, and wired in; The control rods are installed and calibrated to length;The dreaded large bottom skins of the wings are riveted on; All of the lights have been assembled (they were LED board kits) and tested; Only the wing tips and the landing light cut-outs remain to be done.

 

The Fuselage is sitting lonely and un-attended most days.  However, work still proceeds on Thursday evening and Saturday mornings.  Recent progress includes: Completion of conduit installation and rough in wiring from tailcone to panel area; Completion of antenna wire runs; Installation of luggage area and passenger seat flooring panels; Static lines have been run from the tailcone.

 

Most importantly, the project team’s shirts have arrived (Rachel, my daughter is modeling), for everyone on the build team.
