David's RV-10 Build

Just another RV-10 builders log


YRC in their normal fashion decided to take their time in moving my kit. They scheduled the delivery for yesterday but as of 8pm it was still in NY. When I woke up this morning I saw it had made its way to the Middletown Depot. Not sure why they call it Middletown considering its about 10 miles from there. But it was about 2 miles from my house. Looking at the weather it was clear they were not going to do deliveries today due to snow. After a quick call I was able to get them to let me pick it up. Everyone says the box is big, and they are not lying. Its 10’9″ Long x 48″ Wide x 13″ Tall. The Bill of Lading said it weighed 295 lbs. After unpacking this box, I am pretty sure the box weighs 200 lbs. Parts, There is a ton of them and they are all wrapped up. Thankfully my brother Kevin showed up with his girlfriends daughter Emily and they along with my Dad & Sean (one of my employees) helped me unpack and inventory. We got it done in under 3 1/2 hours. I didn’t count the high quantity stuff in the hardware kit, but pretty much anything under a 50 count got counted. Turns out out of all the thousands of pieces in this kit, I was short 2 washers and a cotter pin. Not the end of the world. I also got the ToolBox project as well as the Wing Section. Right now I am waiting on my tool kit order from PlaneTools.com to come in. I have a expected delivery of Friday.

The Box!

I anticipated this to be far worse than it was. There was alot of paper, and someone got excited with duct tape. But it wasn’t that bad. I am glad I am not going to be super sensitive on the blue plastic like some builders as that just tore off with the duct tape.


All the bits & pieces put away for now


The paper! I’m sure this will fill our dumpster up somewhat.
