Did your friend ever get his 701 home last year.  I live near Pittsville at 131 and 50 hwy.  I am currently considering the purchase of a 701 kit that was started by amother builder.  Would like to see yours/friends if possible and ask some questions.

The instructions I used told to use baffles in the air duct between cylinders.  I elected not to do that but did add skirts between cylinders and at the rear.  Photos available at my Kitlog on date 7/5/2017. N601LL.  N601GE has a Corvair engine.

Hi Scott, Sorry I didn't see your friend request until today, You bet, I'll be your friend! I see you're in Gillette, I'm in NW Montana, Libby to be exact. I'm just getting into flying, always wanted to but never had the time & money at the same time until I retired. Love to meet you sometime, fly on up sometime for a visit!

This picture was taken on July 18th, 2013.  My first flight was on the first of July and my first passenger was my 85 year old mother on July 25th at 41 hours.  I now have 270 hours of absolute and totally predictable and enjoyable flying.  I am incredibly happy with my decision to build this particular platform, as it does exactly what I expected it would do and it does it for about twenty $ per hr.  :-)

I have had conversation with the guy who owns your 701, but I can't recall his name right now.  I was given his contact info by Joyce at Zenith while I was still building mine.  I would bet she could remind you of the name also if you contacted her.

If you would care to email me directly with your phone number, I would be happy to give you a call to compare notes.

Is the Airplane that you are talking about?  I happened to see it in Twin as I was flying off my first 40 hours.

That's great, thanks for the info on the drill Scott. I'll phone the local DeWalt guys here and see whether they have that and if so how much it is. Thanks for getting back to me.

The aircraft is in IL until I bring it back to CT.  This is my first plane and first ELSA.  I currently fly an Archer 2 and an Archer 3 with a local flying club.  I looked at a number of aircraft and went through all the attached emotions before deciding on this one.  To date I've only seen photos and talk to people that know the plane.  The owner is 80 and never fly's it so he's letting it go (so the story goes).  In the end it has most of what I was looking for less the Auto Pilot....but I can add that.  The plane is a good value for the agreed price and I'm really looking forward to flying it very soon.  I also took the 16 hour repairmen course last weekend so I can complete my condition inspections.  I'm a died in the wool car guy, used to own a collision shop so my passion for getting my hands dirty helped drive the decision to try ELSA.  Who knows....I may just decide to build the next one, time will tell.
