Rainy weekend means drilling!

I had my rudder ready for priming and riveting last week, but it's been too rainy to prime. So I just moved on to the fin and kept drilling. :)http://justplanechris.com/drilling-drilling-drilling/See More

Hey Chris....Always looking for info and ideas. Really bummed about my 750 STOL but the fuselage, engine, avionics, etc. are able to be saved. New prop and all parts from Zenith ordered. Only had 10 hours flown off of Phase 1 and she flew great. Powered by Lycoming 0-320. You can email me at cpbrammer@cox.net

Hi Chris---I have a 750 tail dragger almost finished. I should have been flying by now but moving and another house to deal with got in the way. Zenith did the mod and supplied parts, not much to it. Pat Martin is also doing it, he's on the forum. Was hoping to make osh this year but maybe next.

Hi Chris,

Welcome. I've been building from plans for a little over two years. I'm working on the fuselage now, with wings and tail feathers complete. I hope you enjoy the build as much as I have. Let's stay in touch.

Exactly what I did ...

I'm over in Wylie (NE, Dallas) building N701LT.  If you're in Austin, you might want to contact Frank Pisz.  He's in Austin too and is doing a 750 on floats.
