I haven’t posted to this list serve in quite a while but I thought I’d drop a note to the effect that another rare RV-3 took to the sky this weekend. Not my first RV or airplane to build and fly, but the grin is still remarkably infectious.

She flies pretty much hands free except for the usual right rudder.

The usual CHTs on the right side are also a tad warm on climb out, but I’ll wait until break in is done to do too much sorting out. It’s manageable if I don’t keep the power at full blast with the nose up.

She’s about 300lbs lighter than my -6 so handles noticeably lighter. The sight picture appears somewhat higher so finding that 1 inch wheel to ground zone is going to take a few landings. It may be that things are smaller which makes it feel higher and I’m over correcting.

The integrated Dynon Skyview system is pretty cool but the data density being presented is intense while flying the airplane. That will take some getting used to in spite of countless hours staring at it and pushing buttons.

Congratulations!

I have given serious thought to building a -3. I would like to hear more about the differences and joy of flying it. I am using a GRT HX and am entirely addicted to all the information without a big instrument scan.
