Hi Ron;

I've not seen any recent posts re your 750. Is it up and flying. I also have a 750 (plans built)

about to complete phase one. I'm based at Shafter, Minter Field.

Good luck with your project.

Del Clowes

Ron, I am going to the "Corvair College" this week to learn what I can & see a few actually running in a plane. I'm a long ways off from needing an engine, so I'm using the time to evaluate them all. I work full time, have niether the time, experience or desire to build one up, so my choices may be limited with the Corvair, as I'd be buying a ready to go engine from someone. Keep us posted on the progress, Thanks - Jimmy

Glad you like your SkyView. It looks great installed on your panel. I'm about to order mine today as I've just completed my panel planning. I went back and forth between the older Dynon series of EFISs but the new features and the those they will adding make the SkyView a better choice. Also the olders one will likely fall out of support at some point.

Hi Ron,

I see you're planning on the Dynon Skyview 7" display and have already got a space for it on your panel. Have you purchased it yet? I really like what they have in the SkyView and what they are planning to add over the next several months. My only concern so far is the size of the display regarding readability of all that is displayed. I wish I could see one up and running before I purchase. What has your decision process been for this EFIS? Thanks!

just sent the crank to moldex on monday, getting ready to send the heads to falcon machine, where did you get your jugs worked? im trying to find a local machine shop as clarks seems kind of high. i went to the zenith open house last month and flew the 750 and loved it, brought tthe rudder kit home with me and had it finished in about 6 hours, gonna wait until i get the engine finished before i order the wings. sounds like you reddy to fly!!

You will be among the first to attempt this feat... this is wonderful!
Be sure to document and photograph as you go... you have a special place (front page!) in the Zenair newsletter as you wish... you will have many onlookers and those that desire to follow in your footsteps with this installation....!

Hi Ron,
Yes! Actually working on the finishing volume now... plenty of loose ends to tie up... are you up to this point now? (I better hurry!)

Hi ron,

My name is Rick Lach and I live in the lake Isabella/Kernville area. I’m currently flying a 701. I’ve been looking for some one in the So-Cal area that is building a 750 and you’re the closest. I was hopping I could come over and take a look ant your 750 project. I would like to learn more about the plane. You can e-mail me direct at:
