What was your experience with these spats? I am considering designing some for my own 701. Charlie O'Neil 425-220-1101

Looking great!

The pants as well as the cowling are all aluminum. Time will tell if they hold up in rough environment but I think they will. The engine is a UL 350Is.

those are some way cool wheel panties and the way you put fences at the end of the slats, nice touch  do you think the wheel pants will hold up on dirt and what are they made of? does it have the ul 350 or ? like the faired gas drains too.

Thanks Kary is getting good at painting in the makeshift booth in the garage. The finished plane is 728lbs but considering the full panel and 2 axes autopilot I am pleased with the weight and at 130 HP it should fly well.
