Savannah kit builders

Unread post by kleyn » Tue Aug 06, 2019 7:48 pm

I have completed a RV14 a while ago and itching for something new to build. I am thinking of a Savannah but need some input form previous kit builders or current builders. The Savannah seems to have the specs that I am looking for, but what I want to know is what was the building experience like? How complete is the kit and ease of build. Is the instructions easy to understand and how good is the company support. Does the kit come quickly together or is there a lot of manufacturing involved?

I will appreciate your input.

If you've built an RV14 my guess is the Savannah will be real easy.

I built one ages ago.
Kit is very complete, add your paint, maybe change instruments etc
Skins are all CNC pre drilled/stamped, so cleco together, pop rivet and mine was straight.
A guy at Microland has built at least 5, I can put you in touch if required.
Local support has always been fantastic and it is great right now.

Cheers Ian

Thank you for the reply. I think I spoke to the person you mentioned and he confirmed you experience with the kit. I spoke to a few other people as well and all of them were positive about the Savannah and the kit. I think I got the answer that I hoped for.
