Well done Allan, great news!
The Rotax 912S makes the CH750 a delightful, light and fun bird to toss around the sky. Your really going to enjoy it. Congrats on the first flight.

Hello my name is Luigi from ITALY. Congratulations for your first flight. I started the construction of a 750. The engine is Rotax 912 100 HP .. I would like to know if the plane is good, if you have problems with  speed. I know two Italians who are two CH 750 and are disappointed by the performance speed of CH 750, can you halp me ?  thanks Luigi

Hi Luigi

Yes it is not a fast plane but I never thought it would be,

I cruise at 70-75kts and it climbs at 500-750 fpm with 2 up and 750-1000 fpm 1 up 

I have a wooden prop 70" x 60" but i think it might need a different prop so over the next few months I will be looking into props 

Over all I am very happy with the 750 it is a great plane for low and slow flying

cheers

Allan

Hi Luigi, Yeah they are definetly not speed demons, but that is the price you pay for 200 foot take-offs and landings and insane climb angles!  Zen says 100 mph but I think that is stretching it...maybe with a good tailwind? 

I'm not in it for speed either though, I want something that can land on a dime and is tough as nails since I'm in the great Northern Canadian wilderness.  I plan on putting it on amphibs as well so I doubt I'll get more than 80 mph out of her.  No rush, I'll just enjoy the scenery!!  :D
