Hope you still read forum posts. Interested in comment you made about counter spring on throttle rod, to overcome strong spring on engine. Not sure if same design is on my CH750, but do you have any photos of your change, or can you describe it in more detail ?  Thanks,

Thanks - I'll keep put that on my list for when I'm actually wiring to the panel - to reverse the action, it's just switching the 2 white wires around... and I would agree (as a low-time sport pilot) that the elevator trim in the Remos I trained in was not intuitive - it was exactly reverse of the way I thought it should be!

Lee, Thanks for the invitation to Chapt 90.  I'm now based at Napa (KAPC).  Just getting ready to attach the wings.

Running 912ul. Would love to see how you setup your 701.  Drop in someday soon.

I built them. I ordered up the strut yokes & barrels from Aircraft Spruce, (PN 05 06000 & PN 05 05900) and had them welded on the inboard side of the aft strut.

Lee, I have the parts set aside for you; the price will be 1/2 of the current price from zenith aircraft; I will check and see what the current price is. Glad your move is over. Bill

It was a surprise to see another Delano that is not a close relative and building a 701 as well. There are not many in Canada, Delanos that is.

HI lee,

Thanks for sending my shirt back. I forgot all about it so it was a nice suprise.

How is your airplane repair coming?

Lee, I have the complete rudder parts set aside. I will keep them until you need them or you can come pick them up. How is the rebuild coming along? Bill 209-772-1183
