G'day Glenn.

Ray White and I are from Wagga, NSW and we're both building 601 XLs. They were QB kits however we have had to undo a whole bunch of it for the upgrade. Ray is a fair bit further along than I am. What engine are you planning on using?  I note that you're from Bairnsdale, I have an Aunt there.

Hi Glenn
Thanks for replying. I have decided that I will accept $400 for the canopy parts which is $100 less than I was originally asking. I think this a good deal as all of the parts are in perfect as new condition. Once again I will provide the crating at my expense and help you organise the freight as before.

Hi Glenn
How are you going. I still have these canopy frame parts here for you. Are you still interested? I have no use for them so make me an offer.

Hi Roger, I can answer that for you as Bob and have already discussed it relating to my 601 build. Apparently, when the air flows over a leading edge that overlaps a trailing edge, a small vortex forms creating a slight disturbance in the airflow. Now obviously this will still happen when the leading edge is fitted under the trailing edge skin, but apparently the disturbance is somewhat less... enough for Chris Heintz to design it this way and I do recall having read him commenting on this somewhere.

You can do it in the reverse manner and some people do, but I have done it this way on my 601 rudder and will do on the wings if that's what the plans say.

Of course, ideally, there would be no join in the skin, but that would be much harder for homebuilders to produce I guess.

I will send you Bob's email address privately, or you can visit his site at

Keep in touch!

Hi Glenn, I would like you to ask your friend that built many CH300 tri z, why the leading edge of the wings is always mounted under the trailling edge to me it doesn't seems right, there must be a logical explanation. I'm getting ready to close up all the wings. Best regards Roger

Hi Glenn, you look like you are making good progress with the build. Still haven't started mine, the extension just seems to go on and on. Near the end now though. Have you decided to move back to the big smoke yet.
