Harmon Rocket C-GVRL is my second completion. The first was an RV-9A C-FVRL. The VRL twins are hangared at Victoria International Airport (CYYJ). On August 21, 2013 I flew the Rocket for the first time. Perfect day, almost perfect flight with a just a few snags.
The Rocket is a test mule for several avionics devices that I designed and put into the public domain through MakerPlane. Flies like a racehorse, not a mule!
Special features of this aircraft: Modified to use sliding canopy from the F1 Rocket; oversize tires for rough fields; I0-540-D4A5 with roller lifters, Raven 1/2 inverted system; Propeller shaft seal to reduce air leakage around prop; plenum; single mag plus Electroair ignition; single SkyView VFR panel; centralized electrical system using breakers and automotive relays for all loads.
Easy to fly!
