I've been toying with the idea of adding a red beacon on the belly of my STOL 750. (I'll probably keep adding mods until the plane won't fly and then it'll be time to quit! LOL!) I was at Sun 'n…Continue

Recently, I noticed the clear protective tape (aviation-grade leading edge tape) I have on the extended lip on the underside of my 750 STOL's cowl was yellowing and slightly blistered where the…Continue

Seems like over the last couple of years or so I've been starting to notice more discomfort on long cross-countries. My STOL 750's seats have always been very comfortable - they have 3 layers of…Continue

"Someone" I know has a Zenith 750 STOL and since it is LSA qualified, flies with a "driver's license medical." He is contemplating cataract surgery involving multifocal intraocular lens implants. …Continue

Some time back, I replaced the Bing carb on my STOL 750/Jabiru 3300 with a Sonex/AeroConversion "AeroInjector" throttle body carb. The AeroInjector's throttle body slide operates in reverse to most other carburetors in that the throttle cable pushes in to close the slide and reduce the rpm's to idle and the cable pulls the slide open for full throttle. Typically, most builders use an AeroConversion throttle quadrant to reverse the cable direction. By attaching the throttle cable below the…Continue

Today, I received a letter from the FAA approving my application for an AMOC (alternative means of compliance) for the AD affecting the NavWorx ADS600-EXP:
A little background: The ADS600-EXP is subject to an AD that…Continue

I accumulated this over 5 years and 4 months. Annuals have been non-events for the airframe - finally had to install new brake pads during my recent annual and that's about it for parts over 5 years! At about 100 hrs I did replace the 800 series tires with 600 series, but that was just personal preference. They look like they'll be good for one more…Continue

uAvionix has recently introduced the "skyBeacon," a FAA-approved (meets 2020 mandate requirements), wing-tip mounted ADSB-OUT transmitter with an internal WAAS GPS that features a simple, 2-wire installation using existing nav light wiring and no additional antenna installation or cabling - and it only weighs 90 grams!. uAvionix sent me a pre-production…Continue
Yes thank you for your research and development of many mods to your 750. I have copied your design for the four point harness. I ordered the tubing and plate from Aircraft Spruce. Then read your write up, cut to length at 23 degrees, welded up, and guess what? A perfect fit. M y question is do you still have the information on the belts you ordered from Crow? The lengths ? Or order number for them to reference too. Yep still going , I did install the Edge bore kit on my 912 and with 50 hr on it it seems to be doing really well. I should find time and make a trip up to TN for a visit.
Regards Bill Alexander.
Thanks, John for showing me your plane I got a lot of info from our visit. You have a beautiful home and landing strip in on of Tennessee most beautiful valleys. Hope you got your water leak fixed and sorry if I held you up. Thanks again
A Michael Mccarthy put a comment on my wall that he has tried to contact me before and I did not reply, but he has not contacted. Don't know for sure whether he attempted and it just did not get to me. I tried to reply but his is set to private. I do not want to send email to the one in his comment as that would expose my email. Is he a valid member?
Sorry John. Did not mean to offend anyone, or post an add to sell my plane. Was merely replying to a question on my selection of a 0-320 engine. Don’t see how to delete, so maybe you can do that for me. Chris
I just changed my internet service from AT&T to Xfinity, which as a result, my e-mail address is changing. How do I change my e-mail address for my log-in? When I go to my profile options, I follow the link for “change” under the e-mail settings, at it just dumps me back to the previous page. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Hey John, Thanks for the heads-up n the DAR question. I normally don't visit the 750 forums. I'm happy to "act" as a DAR consultant whenever I can help.
Maybe there could be an "Inspector Consultant" forum.
John , their is inspection panels for the rear tail where u need them call me 1-217-473-3269 Jeff millburg ch750
First I want to thank you for all the good information you have shared with the forum.
I also have a question. Since the horizontal tail section produces a downward force in flight, I wondered if a larger horizontal tail section would cause additional drag. Have you noticed any reduction in speed due to your elevator extensions?
Looks like I can't reply directly to your comment re engine mount installation, so here it is:
I wasn't aware of the existence of this tool - it would probably have made life easier for the other three bolts, but I suspect it would not fit in the space I had for the 4th bolt.
Just inserting the regular C clamp took a great deal of maneuvering...
But still, not as daunting a task as I expected. Patience and creativity go a long way.
