I have a unique opportunity for someone that is building a 601 or 650. I have a wrecked 601xlb that has everything you need to get a project flying. Jab 3300 with 160 hours, Dynon FlightDek D180, Garman GTX 320, Icom radio, Dual throttle, intercom, switches, breakers, and all wiring uncut to plug and play in your plane. Prop hub but no bladesAlso included is the upholstery kit.I'm asking $9,000.00 for everythingIf your scratch building there is a ton of good parts also that aren't included in…See More

Hi Jeff, do you still make wing root fairings for the CH 650. If so I would be interested in a set.

Hi Jeff
I'm still interested in the fairings
Did you get a quote on shipping to 33537?
Is there any guarantee that I will be happy with the fit and finish of the final product?

Hi Jeff

Thank you for the photo and video of the flex hinge to piano hinge conversion. You have given me confidence for going forward with own my conversion.

One item that I've been unsure of is the rivet size for attaching the piano hinge to the the aileron flanges. It looks like you are using A5's, but still using A4's to close up the aileron. Is that correct?

Have a happy Thanksgiving, and please give my regard to Pat and Ted.

How did that push-pull mod work out on your aircraft?
Are you flying with this modification?
Was this for the ailerons only, or did you also use the push-pull tube for elevator as well?
Do you have any more details of this mod?
I'd like to hear from you.
