Delrin Aileron Stops

I've read on some of the groups about some builders that are opting to use Delrin rods as control stops rather than the aluminum control stops as called for in the plans. This seemed to me to be an elegant solution to this application. The rod I chose is 7/8 inches in diameter as is about the same size as the washer that goes next to it. From what I understand the RV-7 and the RV-8 uses a small diameter delrin rod. I got the idea for using a delrin rod from an RV8 website that I found, and purchased mine from Aircraft Spruce.

GoPro MAX 360 Flight and How to Edit the Video

While I'm still building my Van's RV-12iS, I wanted to test my GoPro MAX 360 Cameras. I mounted 2 GoPro Max 360 Cameras on my Cessna 172 aircraft to try out my new 360 cameras. I also show how to edit the GoPro Max 360 footage using the GoPro Player video editing software.

RV Aircraft News Stories


Over the years, I've heard many stories about middle-aged pilots (45-65 years) who gave up flying due to a sudden onset of anxiety. Apparently this wasn't induced by any specific aviation trauma nor inspired by the relatively small and perfectly normal decline of reflexes and mental agility experienced by most middle aged pilots. What in the world might spook a 50-ish pilot into abandoning something he obviously once loved to do?
