Has anybody flown their Cruzer without doors? I'm wondering if there are any adverse flight characteristics if flown without doors.

Flying the STOL750 without doors slows you down a bit...expect increase noise and wind...leave nothing loose inside.

I just recently saw a video of a Zenith flying without doors, they made a deflector for it.

Tks Keith for the video link. The deflector seems to keep the buffeting inside to a minimum, and it appears to not restrict the normal door open/closure function. Will install, mighty warm here in Philippines.

Before I started on my Cruzer, I asked Roger if it could be flown doors-off like the CH 750 STOL. His answer was yes.

Tks Brian, nice to hear from the "source" it's acceptable.
