701 bubble doors

There seems to be an issue with the bubble doors having a large gap at the forward lower corner and a gap at the rear edge. The door fits fine on the lower flange aft of the door handle. Has anyone got a fix for this? I looked at Zeniths secondary latch and it won't fix this problem as the lower portion of the door aft of the handle fits tight against the fuselage.…

NEW Zenith CH 701

Having a dandy time finishing up our Zenith CH 701 fuselage. For those that aren’t aware, this is the “new” 701 with final hole size match-drilling. It will be on display at the Zenith booth at Sun N Fun (with the Viking 140T) if you want to come take a glance …🙂

outdated drawings?

Any Cruzer builders having issues with outdated drawings? It was redesigned a couple of years ago to make it conform to much of the Super Duty model but the drawings I paid for are woefully outdated. I have to jump between the STOL, SD and Cruzer drawings to try to figure out the building sequence. All three models have some commonality, but you have to figure out for yourself what applies and what doesn't. Additionally, my pick list was also outdated and I make almost weekly calls to Mexico…

CH701 Long wings

Hello everyone,

I recently purchased a partially completed CH701 kit from a local EAA chapter that had inherited it from a member that had passed away. The fuselage, empanage, and wings are mostly finished. Anyway I was looking at the wings and the notes the previous builder had made and he made the wingspan roughly five feet longer than the plans called for. So the final wingspan is 32 feet instead of the 27 feet. this also includes an extra two connectors for the flapperons…

N733YD new home nearing completion

The hanger side of my hanger home (~4 years in the building- a one man job) is done except for the epoxy on the floor. The residence side should be ready this spring. The strip (1SC1, 1200 feet of grass) will be fully ready this spring as well. Looking forward to getting up in the morning, pushing that hanger door button and going flying.  Hope to see some of you at SunNFun this spring. …

Build Progress!

After an extended period of being away, I am back and building once again! 

Completed the top skin and will go through the other 3 to make sure all is ready to go to put them together. 

I'm contemplating putting an access panel on the right side for easier inspection of the rear including the 3 gal fuel tank if I go the viking engine way.

A few pieces here and there, getting ready for the aft fuse assembly.

Merry Christmas to…
