CH 701 is being constructed in my front living room!

I quit drinking.

The bad news is time flies.

The good news is your the pilot.

This will be a what I hope to be the lightest 701/Corvair out there when completed.

It wil be powered with a ,Corvair 3000cc/3 Litre.

It is also being built from the get-go without slats and utilizing VG's instead!
