Yep, KLR's are a blast!  Mine will do anything I'm adventurous enough to try, same with my 750! I tend to gravitate to simple durable machines!

Hey Martin,

I see you do winter flying up your way in the 701. Ever have any issues with carb ice with the 912?

Martin , 

thanks for taking the time to reply , really appreciate it.

I will have a look at Bob’s skis and I believe that he has plans available.

would like to stay as light as practicable.

Thanks again and thanks for the reply to the fella that was looking for “numbers” for his first flight . That kind of info is invaluable to us 701 newbies . Really enjoy your videos too .

Martin ,It looks like you have set up your great looking 701 as a all season flying machine . I’ve just purchased a already built and flying 701 and would like to put her on skis for winter use as you have . 

From your pictures , your ski set up looks to be exactly what I have in mind . If you have more detailed picts of the skis and rigging would you mind sharing them ?

I would also be very interested to know if you built them yourself (plans ?) or purchased them .

Thanks in advance for any info you might want to share .

Bob Guilfoyle,

Roundup , Montana

Hello Martin

I have recently purchased a CH701 on  3 wheel amphibs.

I am in the process of transferring from Floats to Wheels  and I am looking for any hints that you may have.

Additionally that float I have are Electrically actuated and as such I am interested in the Pump that you have/ Had

Regards,  Ian Taylor

I took video but it turned out not very good (my finger was it) so I deleted it - this is the only picture that left from the river. Thanks again for the ride.

Martin - I bought the bearing with McMaster Carr and it is a 3/4" size. I really like the no slots flaperons. I see you're building from plans also. I had alot of fun doing it. Good luck with the rest!!

Me too, but it looks like it won't be for some time. Lots to upgrade and a major design change.
Happy flying!!!
