FAA inspection scheduled one year to the day I started building my CH750

Posted on December 21, 2009 at 1:06pm 0 Comments

Just scheduled my Airworthiness inspection for my CH750 for January 9, 2010. I thought waiting for my kit to arrive was bad, this is going to be nerve racking at best, waiting two weeks. Still have some little things to do but not enough to keep my mind off Jan 9th. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Good afternoon Clemens, I'm a RV-8 flyer at F45 just down the Beeline from OBE. I'm very serious about building a CH750 and would love to meet you and talk about yours.


Also great excused to visit for lunch and maybe say hi to Jan Bussell.

I am in the phase 1 testing period on my C-90 zenith 750, 14 hours so far. My oil temps are hitting 220 even though I installed an oil cooler. I am considering putting a hole in the cowl to put an airflow over the bottom of the engine. Do you have any ideas on what i might do?

Thanks for your help with my problem,

Hi Clemens,

Since you've started flying without the slats, are you still using the original slatted CG range?  Is it any harder to keep the nose off during landing?  Finally about to fly my slatless CH750 for the first time.  Bruce Cruikshank

Not fling yet. All parts are finished. Have to paint wings. Assemble and install engine.

I'm curious what happend to your wing tip.  Was it impacted by something or did the slat come loose due to the impact.

Hi Clemens,
Are you using any kind of fuel pump. or just a gravity feed fuel system?
Thanks Bruce

I can't be sure but that is what I have been concerned with(exit air), however comparing openning at the bottom of several older aircraft their opennings are no larger than the CH750 and in one case smaller. So, I draw the conclusion that I'm forcing more air in and there fore forcing more air out creating a better cooling effect. Also the air is dircted more toward the oil sump which should help. I may make the "lip" deeper into the compartment this summer if the temps go up to get the air more directly to the oil sump. This past weekend it never got over 168 degrees. My friends got to 220 in 20 mins. He is adding an oil cooler as I write.

On your extra hole in the nose, do you know if that is intake or exit air that is improving your temps?
