Great news on your progress Steven - congratulations!  Please do post some detailed pictures when you are able.  You're creativity and workmanship are really an inspiration!

How are you making the yokes?  Is it a version of the way they do it on the CH-640 or something that you developed on your own?  Can't wait to see more progress pictures! :-)

Hello, I am building my 701 and want to put a rx-1 engine in it. Would like to talk to you about the engine mount if you have figured that part out yet. Thanks

I ordered a converted rx1 engine with prsu and clutch. I'm hoping a rotax 912 cowling will fit with minor mods.

Hi Steven,

Not even ! When I takeoff I make sure that my feet are on the floor and my toes on the pedals - not on the brakes !!! This is really weird and scary ! Only realized how close that call was AFTER I saw the destroyed rim !

If that had happened landing ... Well, I try NOT to think about it !

For sure I will get to the bottom of this and let you know.

Hi Steven and Tara,

I love what you're doing with your CH750 (?)... Lots of improvements and experimentation. Also love the fact that we can all SHARE our experiences - good or bad !

Keep at it, your bird looks amazing. Hope mine looks anything like yours.

Keep the photos coming, I'll do the same.

Hi Steven and Tara,

No, not making a new wing but replacing the two inward (close to fuselage) ribs by higher ones. Also, Making half ribs to put on top of door tops. Will post pictures when started ! Cheers, Norman
