I plan to start building a 601XL this Winter and want to put a 0-200 in it. I did transition training with Buzzy earlier this year and his 0-200 in the 750 seemed to perform well. I’ve been looking…Continue
Hi Robert. I actually may be switching from the 650 to the 750 myself as I started thinking about what my mission really is and the 750 seems to fit it better. I'm wanting to do a 120HP Corvair conversion on the 750. Hoping for a 3 year build process as I work from home, self employed, and have plenty of time on my hands. You think that's enough time for a first time builder? I have a some experience doing a Murphy Rebel with a EAA chapter when I lived in IL, but mostly just sheet metal riveting.
Robert, I agree that it is a long drive. I have family in NE Nebraska, a 19 hour drive.
Yes, that would be very tempting, if you were closer. I assume you don't want to separate the plans.
The inboard return line works fine. I haven't flown yet, but I have just over 2 hours of run time on the engine and having the return line on the inboard end of the fuel tank seems to work fine. Due to the wing dihedral, the inboard end will always be the "deepest" end of the tank. Couple that with the constant sloshing during flight, and the fuel cooling should not be an issue.
I have to pick it up in Minnesota, so it will be a month or so before I get up there. I know the canopy, front gear and rudder were all damaged. I wont know more till I pick it up.
Feel free to write me direct at email@example.com.
Thanks, Robert. I will be talking to the UL people at Sebring this weekend.
Thanks, Robert. May I ask what the cost of your UL350 was with prop and all other additions?
