Who built this RV-10?
I've written in the past about how some builder assistance operations are going to kill the golden goose -- forcing the FAA to scrap the homebuilt/amateur-built category because of people who are cheating.
Perhaps you saw this article on an RV-10(members) in the most recent AOPA Magazine. It turns out the gentleman says he didn't build it; someone else did.
You'll want to read this thread on the Matronics list for all the details.
You may also wish to listen to this week's podcast of Uncontrolled Airspace, in which Amy Laboda tries to explain why this is such a huge deal.
