Hi Kay,  The project took 7 years, 3 months from first form block to first flight.  Your 640 looks fantastic!

How long did it take to complete your 750?  From one plans builder to another, nice work!!

Thanks guys!  I'll hopefully be posting a video of the flight soon (at least as soon as I can figure out my editing software).  The plane flew very nicely, was able to trim for hands off.  Can't wait for the weather to improve so I can get back up there!  The plane is indeed 100% CH750 STOL, minus the rear windows. All plans built with the exception of the steel parts, doors, windshield, and a few thicker aluminum pieces.  I'm not sure who put the 701 tag on it, but I'll look into fixing it.  Thanks again for all the great comments!

Congrats! Had my first flight a couple of months ago and am truly enjoying mine!

I have to ask though, how much of your plane is 701vs750? It doesn't look hardly right for a 701 (windshield, flaperon brackets, etc).

Nice looking bird regardless!

I am very proud of you, and a bit envious, I'm working with a DAR now.

Congratulations Clint. It looks very cold there...I hope you installed a cabin heater!

Congratulations Clint! Welcome to the plans built club. May you have many enjoyable hours in the plane!

Congratulations Clint! You have done it the hard way and she looks great! I hope I get to see it in person some day.
