Roger takes the Zenith STOL CH 701 flying. This is our first attempt using the ContourHD camera (mounted to the headset) in the plane.

Great video Roger - especially interesting as I prepare for my first test flight. I noted down all your "numbers"

Good also to look at your nose attitude as I spooked myself a bit this week testing fuel flow with up to a 10 degree nose down pitch - needed better than half full tanks to keep the fuel going in that static configuration - see my blog of 29 Sept.

Interested also in your camera, I want to do something like that as I fly around our (New Zealand)  mountains etc

The only part I didn't like was all that white stuff - after experiencing 2 winters in Alberta, I am as they say"over it"!!

Very informative, especially topics around sink rate, gliding and when to apply flaps and when to retract the flaps.

would be very interesting to have such video on the 750 and 801  as well. There is such misconception about the 7xx gliding capabilitiy. From that video I don't feel it's that bad at all.



Thanks Roger...much appreciated.

Excellent video Roger, I hope you do more in the other models.

headset cam worked good. I kinda like the engine noise in the background instead of silence or music. feels more like the real thing.
