checking out your 701 builder site during my build has been one of my most frequently used resources. Thank you for posting such a thorough record of your build. Over the past week or two, the page seems to have disappeared. I am wondering is it still out there somewhere or did you decide it was time to take it down.
The NYPD tee shirt was from my last vist to the Big Apple, March 2010. I have some cousins who live over in Rutherford NJ. so we spent some time with those guys and a good wander round NY. Loved it ! I was hoping to have nipped up to Tetterton to see if I could sneak any local flights but time didn't allow. Maybe next time.
Hello Brian. Thanks for sharing the video. Great to see the landing from this angle.
I also like your web site, very thorough details and pictures. Almost the same amount of work gone in your web site as your building project. It is very commendable when someone goes into this detail to show others how to build their planes. Very helpful.
I just uploaded a video of my plane and a short landing and take off in a 25 kts wind.
Nice job, wishing you safe and fun flying. I just found your site and browsed, colorblind I guess, could not find white lettering so did not sign in. I am building a 650 but principles are the same. Thanks for sharing your build site!
Your web site has been a great help to me in my build. I note that you put your fuel senders on top of the tanks which I also plan on doing. can you tell me where you found the cork spacers for the top of the tank, and did you make access ports on top for the senders?
