Service bulletin SB 14-01-3, for the #RV-7 horizontal stabilizer cracks, is behind me! It took me 35-40 hours over 25 calendar days. In hindsight, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

RV-7 horizontal stabilizer service bulletin in progress. It's no fun disassembling the HS before it's even flown, but it will only be more inconvenient the longer I put it off.

Interesting ...
Without warning, radar scopes went dark and radio frequencies fell silent. In the basement of Chicago Center early Sept. 26, investigators say a contract employee destroyed the communications network, forcing an “ATC Zero” situation. Controllers from Chicago and around the nation banded together to overcome the act of destruction.

A recycled parachute provides shade from the late day August sun. #RV-7 baffles are in progress in the foreground.

I'm surprised I can't watch the .m4v NBC News video on my pixel (see link). IIRC, I could on my previous C720. Does it work for others?

Work on the #RV-7 baffling continues at a snail's pace. Here I've fit the optional oil cooler shutter to the baffling. It will help regulate the oil temp via a push-pull cable in the cockpit. Because I mounted the oil cooler as high as possible, the original shutter arm was going to be too close to the cowling. I made a new arm to address this. I think it will work well.

We are a year into a low-carb lifestyle. We definitely feel better and each weigh 30 pounds less! +Pamela Anderson Bowen 
An anonymous reader writes: The NY Times reports on a new study (abstract) showing that low-carb diets have better health benefits than low-fat diets in a test without calorie restrictions. "By the end of the yearlong trial, people in the low-carbohydrate group had lost about eight pounds more on av...

The next chapter in the #RV-7 baffles is the installation of the snorkel. This is the fiberglass piece that directs the air from the filter in front of cylinder #2 to the Airflow Performance AFP 200 throttle body. This fiberglass duct is designed to fit the smaller Bendix throttle body, so we'll need to perform a little surgery. Nothing beats cutting a $300 part into pieces! :(

Yeah, 5 weeks and $30 a piece; that sounds about right.  Our 2 are still filthy within a couple of days.

As for my build time, I know it'll be closer to 5 (or maybe 6.5) than 2.5.  But, a guy can dream huh?  It only took me 15 years to actually get started!
