It’s finally come down to it, time to sell the RV-4. I swore that this would be my last airplane but my flying mission has changed. I really want to start getting into the old back country strips that I used to go to and the RV-4 just isn’t suitable for getting into some of the smaller and rougher ones. Plus now that it’s painted I would worry about chipping paint.
I am also feeling compelled to build a plane with my son. The next plane will be largely built by him with my supervision. So without any further ado…
Asking Price: $42,000
Serial No: 1054
Year built: 2002 (actually the year it was registered, took 5 years to build)
Engine: O320-D2A, TTSN: 288
Propeller: Catto 2 blade
Rocky Mountain MicroMonitor
MicroAir 760 Comm Radio
MicroAir T2000 Transponder with blind encoder
Stereo intercom with music input
Standard ASI, VSI, ALT, Mag Compass
The plane is all white. I will be adding vinyl graphics in the near future unless requested otherwise by buyer.
I need to clean up a few wires behind the panel. There is also one more air vent to mount just below the panel. Electrical switches are on a panel located below the right cockpit rail. Throttle, mixture, and carb heat controls are located on a quadrant just below the left cockpit rail. The instruments are: Left half of panel from top down, ELT, Intercom, Trim indicator, trim button, MicroMonitor, fuel gauge with selector switch directly below, MicroAir 760 Raido, T2000 Transponder. Right half of panel from top down, Alternator warn indicator and field breaker, Magnetic compass, ASI, blank, Altimeter, turn coordinator, blank, vertical speed indicator. At the far left is an air vent. The stick has a single push to talk button mounted on top.
Fuses are located in a hinged panel below the switch panel on the left. Note that the battery and fuel lines are normally covered. I had them off to clean the interior and forgot to put them back on for the picture.
I need to get a better shot of the interior. The interior is flat grey with two-tone grey upholstry. The roll bar is painted white.
A few more exterior shots follow:

The bottom line:
If you are looking for an Oshkosh award winner, this plane is NOT for you. If you a looking for an honest, fun flier, this plane may be for you. I’ve flown it to Oshkosh twice now and it has never let me down.
