Hi Jim, may i know your email?

it just that i want to ask about the Flaperon Control Cover. Did you make a hole on it to ease the flaperon control torque for the bolts? What is the diameter and did you close it with something such as plexi glass?

thanks jim

Jim, I have been looking at your photos posted and have a 750 project somewhere in progress. I  am using a 0-200 engine and  would appreciate knowing where I could get an exhaust  made up like yours.   Max

Hi Jim,

Looking forward to meeting you and your CH-750 at our Fly-in this May. Tell all your friends, the more people that attend the more fun for everyone.

I'm building a 750. Have the tailfeathers complete, and hope to have the rear fuselage completed this weekend. You photos and comments have provided me great encouragement! Great colors! I'm a California native from Chico, and have been farming in the Williamete Valley in Oregon for the past 20 years.

Thanks for "clean" comment, Jim.
I work at a small aerospace company, and FOD is a dirty word.
Actually, I think I'm just being respectful to the plane and the project.
