I hope no one was hurt?
Its sad but if no one was hurt that is as good as it gets.
Yes very interested in hearing what happened. Although I do know soft sand is pretty tricky stuff... :(
Sorry this happened. 'd be interested in the wheels, landing gear and skiis. Let me know if you want to sell them separately...Thanx
Yes I would be interested but two things.........first I have the wings at home but the rest of the plane is only accessible by boat and getting it on a barge now is a little hard because of low water level. Second I would like to give it a little time and see if anyone is interested in taking everything
Ok I have about 160 hours experience all in this plane in the last year. I landed on this beach a few times but it was on a narrow gravel bar. I walked around on the sand it didn't seem to soft. I thought the sand would be better. I wanted to land on some tracks that some vehicles made. There was a bit of a crosswind and I didn't quite get lined up with the tracks. I should have aborted and gone around , the end of the beach was coming, l was crabbing into the wind flaps all the way down at 40 mph. I landed flat, it rolled for maybe 75 feet and when it was almost stopped it flipped over and landed upside down.
Nice seats in your 701 Frank. Did you make them or buy them ?
Randy I don't know the history of the seats they were like that when I bought the plane.
Mike I don't know how to answer your question. I was hoping to get $15,000 Canadian for everything. The engine is worth about 10 thousand but that would be after I spend a thousand and get Rotax to check the crank and slipper clutch, install new seals and do any required repairs. The plane has an Extreme EFIS, mode c transponder, ICOM radio, two place intercom, analog gauges and 406 elt. Also there are spare tires, a set of skis and some parts. So just the plane without the electronics, engine or accessories isn't worth much but when you start adding goodies it adds up.
What instruments and gauges do you have for sale? I'm sorry this happened to you!
Also whats the specs on the Warp drive prop you have and how much are you asking?
