Hi Jim, may i know your email?

it just that i want to ask about the Flaperon Control Cover. Did you make a hole on it to ease the flaperon control torque for the bolts? What is the diameter and did you close it with something such as plexi glass?

thanks jim

Jim, I have been looking at your photos posted and have a 750 project somewhere in progress. I  am using a 0-200 engine and  would appreciate knowing where I could get an exhaust  made up like yours.   Max

Hi Jim.... I really like your panel layout.... I'm planning on very much the same layout... would you have any pictures from the back showing how you supported the radios, glovebox etc... any pic's very much appreciated.  Thanks.  Guy.    my e-mail is   gtbishof@telusplanet.net

Hi Jim, I'll be coming to Copperstate with a bunch of guys from our EAA chapter. We should arrive some time Friday morning. Can't wait to meet you and have a close look at you plane, even though it will make me feel ashamed about my own craftsmanship (or lack thereof)!  See you there, Thomas

Hi Jim,

Looking forward to meeting you and your CH-750 at our Fly-in this May. Tell all your friends, the more people that attend the more fun for everyone.

Hi Jim, I would congratulate you on your first flight, if I weren't so steaming with envy :)
If you ever go to 10,000' or above I would love to know how the O-200 handles the altitude, since I have a rebuilt O-200 on hand. I hope you come to New mexico some time in your beautiful plane.

Cheers, Thomas

I'm building a 750. Have the tailfeathers complete, and hope to have the rear fuselage completed this weekend. You photos and comments have provided me great encouragement! Great colors! I'm a California native from Chico, and have been farming in the Williamete Valley in Oregon for the past 20 years.

Thanks for "clean" comment, Jim.
I work at a small aerospace company, and FOD is a dirty word.
Actually, I think I'm just being respectful to the plane and the project.
