WOW! And we should all scrap all of the other experimental aircraft if it is not an RV!!! BTW, RV's are not built they are assembled. RV's are better suited for the unskilled builder.
BoKu, how about another glass of that "RV Koolaid".........
As an owner/restorer of a hand welded E-AB Hatz Biplane and currently assembling an RV-7 I can vouch that there is less margin for error building the RV, that's why so many are flying. The support community for Hatz and RV's is legendary and any issues with solutions are quickly propagated thru the community. I have learned that having support for your E-AB aircraft is an invaluable resource.
How do you know that the E-AB you are buying/flying was built/maintained by a skilled builder if it's not an RV?
I almost purchased a Mustang II ~6-7 yrs ago but it had a corrosion issue and I couldn't find any information if it was normal and/or if there was a standard fix for it. But I am also a big guy, 5'10" ~200 lbs and the Mustang made my RV-7 seem roomy.
The current aircraft market has folks dragging all sorts of junk out of old barns and selling them to unsuspecting folks who are desperate to find something they can afford. Buyer beware as there are many unscrupulous people out there, and some of the worst looking aircraft I have seen were "A&P" owned/built.
