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
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
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
