It's an indescribable feeling, Chris. I have finished flying off our 40 hours, and the dream continues! You will have a blast...

Great job Lex. Hope to fly our 750 STOL in a couple of months. It's got to be a great feeling.

Luzius, we have the same Sensenich prop you have. I cruise at 80 mph at 2900 rpm on the Jabiru 2200.

Alan, I have the 4 cylinder Jabiru in my CH 701. I'll send you the weight and balance when I'm at the hangar later.

Hi,

Looks like you have the 6 cylinder jab motor, how did your C of G work out, my 701 with a 6 Cylinder jab is nearing completion also, just about ready to check the weight and balance so would like to hear what your findings were, enjoy the flying.
