Lived in Haiti for a while. Shared the shower every day with a Lizard just like that. Also really like your electronic- free panel with wood grain. Classic.   I have one request: There seem to be very few videos of Corvair 750s flying. Any chance you could change that??   If you need cash for cameras I would even contribute!

Very nice!

Same for me, 2850 seems to be the sweet spot. At least a year out on the build, unless I win the lotto. Of course then I might just skip the whole project and just pay to fly right stick in my Lear Jet. Until them I am trying to finish a CH750 to hold the Corvair. Thanks for the pics, it looks great.

Looks good!! I am looking forward to getting to this point and beyond. Everything I have done so far on my plane has been interesting and fun. Good luck with the rest of your build.

I can't answer what David is going with but, I am building the Corvair 2850cc (110hp). I plan to put the Weseman crank and 5th bearing in it. My preliminary cost calculation is that I will spend $8,000 to $10,000 on the engine. This doesn't include the FWF or prop.

Which horsepower did you go with and about how much total $$$?

Can't wait until my corvair is at that stage
