    Continued:



    Sheldyne put on an aileron building seminar. Took a couple guys an hour or so to build both ailerons (they have never done this before of course). Pretty amazing how simple it goes together!!!


    Breakfast with the guys Sunday Morning - Lucas (where you taxi to a regular gas pump, and park out front of a restaurant! always fun!)


    Flying with Randy on Sunday - he had the 141 wing Raven out


    And last but not least, a beautiful award winning S20 built by one of our (forum) own - Glenn! Nicely done man!



    More to come, and I'm sure others will hopefully chime in with some interesting things about the weekend. But here is a preview to get started for those who couldn't attend.

    @ GravityKnight :

    Thank you for posting the fabulous pics. Bravo...

    That S-21 look almost like it would snap together like an erector set project.

    I'm looking forward to your future uploads.

    Many of us are "stuck" and can't make it to a Fly In. Love the images.

    Wish I would have gotten pics of their new hardware format

    You don't get the little bags of bolts and nuts. They have a third party supplier that provides a large grey (or several depending on the need) cabinet with multiple yellow drawers that are labeled. Sweet!

    Randy, Shelly and the whole staff were amazing hosts. They put up with all my newbie questions with a smile. First ride in a Rans and I'm hooked! Definately a lot of fun.
    Forum question: I found a Barnstormers post for an S7 in Idaho. Where do I post to ask if anyone knows the builder or the plane?

    I made a call for you Jmrryd, friend in Homdale, next sm. town W. of Napa. Mark knows most everyone, has an A.C. parts bus. Seller Trueblood bought the started kit from some one else, not finished. He bought the 914T used + installed it via 50 TTAF + 350 TTE. Mark, said "nice plane, thought he was trying to sell it for a while." Mark stated "Tom finished bldg. it to sell." Upon asking me the price, thought Tom had started out much higher, said "you wouldn't get hurt in it." Mark does bldr. asst., owned a S7, Son Ty a KF, now ag. pilot in Wash., respected history, knowledge, known regionally. Someone serious, most obviously, would contact the previous owner of the engine, logs. When I was out there a few back, John Roberts had a hangar 50' away from Mark, saw his gear on his own @ Homedale, on the Snake.Good luck.

    Jmryd: Correction, line 4 & 5 "Tom" should read Todd. Mark stated he formerly employed by Ford Dlr., now realtor, i.e., ad "selling to pursue new bus. venture,"... probably prop. related.
