6 Cylinder UL power engine in CH750

Since the Z factory does not have a 750 demonstrator with UL power, and UL power now has six cylinder engines available, would'nt it be great to see the factory put toghether a "Super STOL 750" with 150 HP?

Just wishing....I am sure Sebastien would do it if I sent him a check!


It would also be really cool to see a cross country "Non STOL" version of the 750 with a new aerodynamic high speed wing.  This would give builders a high wing alternative to the CH650.

A six cylinder UL Power in the 750 would be cool but not really necessary and it would add a lot of cost.  The UL350iS at 130HP really is a good choice.  Having said that.... I'm game.

Mike - I like that idea; new "Non STOL" version of the 750. Cessna's underwear would get all knotted-up. However, Chris is probably retired.

If you want to go faster, build something other than a Chris Heinz design. His priorities point his designs towards simple, strong, decent short field type airplanes that are easy to build, and they are great at what they are designed to do. His priorities actually serve as a deterrent of speed, in my not so humble opinion.


Now your other idea, that works for me. More power. Better climb. Always welcome.

If you want to go faster take the slats off.

I'm fairly certain Zenith has the UL350IS in both the 650 and 750. I have not heard about the 6 cylinder yet.
