Propellers for Zenith aircraft and Valdez STOL for Zenith Super Duty

I have seen a bunch of spinners but nothing like the quality from DUC.  Yes, they talk funny and we make fun of them when the price of copper is low (Statue of liberty on Ebay) but the French got these propellers done right.  We all know carbon fiber is strong.  Now take that concept to the airliner quality and you end up with slightly more expensive, but far superior parts.  This is a beautifully shaped spinner for the new 5 blade propeller now starting production for Viking by DUC.  This will…See More

Fuel system for CH-750 Aircraft

This is our most popular, dual in tank pump fuel header tank,  sporting 2.5 gallons, precise fuel level indication, textured black powder coating and plenty of mounting holes.  A large quantity of this model is used in the back of the CH-750 aircraft model, greatly simplifying the fuel system and keeping all the fuel out of the cabin area.  The panel mounted gauge show the last 30 minutes of fuel and more importantly, allow for precise fuel management when the wing tanks are getting low.   See…See More

Are there any 750 STOLs flying in in Alberta Canada with the Viking engine ? I would like to see one possibly go for a flight in it. I live in Stony Plain A.B. near Edmonton but could drive to see one PH # 780-963-9640 , Cell 780 984-5033 , email shlaww@xplornet.com.

Thanks for the vote of confidence.  Of course I haven't even seen my kit yet.  I pick it up on 01/19.   It will be like Christmas all over again ...

Only 3 areas of the 701 build give me any great concern only because I have little experience.  I've done wood & fabric A/C before.  I had a Fly Baby with 65 Franklin just about ready for cover when Hurricane Katrina took it (and just about everything I owned).  We never even found any pieces.  As I my condo was just across from the N.O. Yacht Club, we figure the Fly baby is somewhere in the middle of Lake Pontchatrain.  I did manage to complete a 28 Hp Hirth powered MiniMAX 1103 in 2009.

I'd never done any sheet metal work so I took the EAA SportAir workshop and followed by the rudder-build workshop at the Zenith Factory.  I then placed my order for the 701.

I'm a retired Industrial Engr. Prof. (shopfloor automation), but the wing-root compound curves look tough and the cabin area (doors & glass) as well.  I ordered the folding-wing option and so far the plans seem sketchy at best in that area. 

Finally, my comment as to the Viking install.  I'm more than sold on the engine (deposit to get in the build queue will be sent later this month).  I don't believe the installation itself should be a problem, I'm just not an electricals guy and the panel itself is a bit worrysome, but I'm sure I'll work it out.  I do see that I have the installation services to fall back on.
