Mark Swaney’s F1. Looking good.
Mark’s panel. A very clean installation. Nice.
Chris F. Rocket’s tail art… wow!

Brad Hood’s brand new F4
My F-4 is flying and currently in the paint shop. I named it: F-4 Rocket II. F-4 for 4 cylinder. It is not a Raider due to its unique construction. (It has RV-8 wings and tail.) I do plan to have it at OSH to compete.
It flies absolutely perfectly. Looks like a Rocket and flies like an RV-8. No CG issues at all. In fact, it came out up next to the forward limit with full fuel and pilot only. I couldn’t be happier with it! Performance is like an IO-360 RV-8 or better.
The concept is verified!
Thought you would like to know,
Brad Hood’s F4 Rocket II engine installation Brad also had this to say after flying it: Appears to be comparable to an angle valve RV-8 and possibly a bit better. Frankly, it feels very similar to my F-1 but roll stick pressure is much lighter. Again, like an RV-8. I am totally pleased with it!
