First Flight of my corvair powered CH650

Hi Builders & fliers

This is a video that a good friend made of the first flight of my 650. It is powered by 2850cc 110hp covair. I have 23 hours on the plane now and have no problems. The link is and the password is tallyho.

Hi John.  Got your message.  I'll try to give you a ding after the long weekend.  I'm sure you have plenty on the go.  It would be great to see where you are at and learn from your experience.  I've got lots of questions.  Look forward to talking with you.  My cell is 416 606 6589 if you have time before then. (I'm just cleaning up around the workshop this weekend getting ready for my tail kit).
