How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( email@example.com
) for the full details.Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
Guy, I think if you look up my project on this website you can access all my photos!
Dear Guy,, Congratulations on nearing completion of your CH-801, I took an unusual amout of time on mine as I didn't build on a regular basis but truly enjoyed building it along with the challenges that come with installing a new style engine. I installed engine # 5 off the Jabiru 8 cylinder line of 180 Hp and used a Craig Catto 3-blade fixed custom prop. I managed to develop about 800# of thrust on a plane that only weighed 1250. Needless to say I was unable to hold it with full brakes at only partial trhottle and it went up like a rocket!
Did not see your choice of engines but wish you the best success, if there are any questions I can help with please feel free to drop me a note, will tell you only that which I know to be fact!
I donated my airplane to the Wisconsin Aviation Academy for the kids to learn to fly but he sold it to F&F out of Oklahoma before the kids could make good use of it. Have not been able to get any replies from my inquires to F&F however so do not know the current status of the plane, I do however have a number of photos if theywould be helpful.
