I couldn’t find a listing of all the RV-8 Mods. Here’s what I could find. I will be adding to this over time, and there are probably lots of ideas that I’ve missed. I won’t be adding all of these to the plane I’m building, but I wanted to have them all listed here in one place to make them easier to remember.
