 I just purchased a CH 701 on amphibs. My short field does not suit the extra weight of the floats so I'm putting her back on wheels. Anyone looking for Amphib  floats? This is the type that the…Continue

  Hi, I had just recently purchased a CH 701 with Pegastol wings.  The aircraft requires some TLC and a new powerplant so I haven't had a chance to fly it. For what I've read they seem to be a pretty…Continue

I am a Powered Paragliding Instructor. I currently fly powered paragliders and a Challenger II. I just purchased a CH 701 with Pegastol wings that requires a lot of TLC. The engine was a Suzuki 1.3 but have recently sold it. I'm planning to put in Rotax 912 or possibly a Jabiry 2200. Hopefully we'll get the aircraft in the air by end summer or Fall.

Hi Frank. Just love the Pegastol wings. My slats seem to pop in and out at around 70 knots indicated. The fuel tanks are still giving me some grief with on going leak problems. Would love to rebuild those plastic tanks in aluminium and put an extra drain at the rear of the tank to capture some unusable fuel.

My unusable is also around 5 litres although I can get that down to around 3 litres with some nose down trim!! I have a 15 litre header tank behind the fire wall with a sight glass to keep an eye on things. 

Safe flying

That was perfect Frank! That is exactly what I want to do. Working on the horizontal stab now. Working on getting the skin on.

Frank, I love the landing video, I've watched at least 20 times. How about a video of you taking off from home?
