Hey Ben, great to see you have finished a scratch build. Hope you enjoy. I would like to see more of your build photos if you have them.

I finished my scratch built 701 in April 09 and enjoying the flying but experiencing bad builder's withdrawal symptoms..... I'm very interested to see how you like the 0200 on the plane. Keep in touch.

Congratulations Ben!!! But I'm sorry to say. After about 6 months you will start getting builders withdrawls. GOOD LUCK!

Hi Ben,

I am one of six that are each scratch building 750s. I have to tell you that we (our group) arrogantly thought that we might be the first to finish scratch build a CH750. Finding your post made us realize that we won't even be close... We started the first of March and we have only completed the empanage and have just started on the flapperons.

We agree, the plans could be better. But we are having fun and we look forward to having a capable STOL aircraft.
