Thanks James. It was an awesome journey that I will venture on again one day when circumstances allow. I will still be hovering around this group helping out when I can. Keep having fun with your build and post as lots of pics.
Tried sending a message directly to your email but it got sent back to me.
I just checked my pics on kitlog and also could not find one showing the inside of the rear bubble, my appologies. What I did was everywhere there was a rivet ending with acyrlic, I placed a washer over the rivet before pulling it to spread the load on the acyrlic surface rather than the edges of the hole.Only one small crack as you can probably see on the R/H rivet in the pic. All the rivets through the flashing ending in acyrlic are avex not the low pressure soft household rivets provided and used on holes starting with acyrlic. Maybe the softer rivets would have prevented the damage. Good luck mate.
hi James--I stalled my CH701 and went down on landing strip into some growth and banged up my wings real bad---was hoping some one out there had started to build CH701 but gave up and would be willing to sell parts. Thank you for asking, but am ok--knocked my pride all to pieces---Glenn
Thanks for your comment. I have done all of my upholstery myself. It has been a most enjoyable job and it's not really that hard to learn with the greatest learning tool at our disposal. The internet.
No, mine is not finished yet, the structure is done but interior, instruments and engine needs to be done. It stood for a while during the time I was getting the Savannah ready to fly but the Savannah is now flying so the 601 is next!
