Here's the email I just sent to the boys at ZAC, I'll call you when I get a reply:

pn 75F6-7 (Baggage Back Channel) was added since the original plans.
In a situation such as this, do I ignore a part I don't have and build according to the original plan set?
Also, in the photo assembly guide 75FA-1- Revision 2.0 currently on the builders webpage, the part 75F4-8 Bottom Skin Gusset appears to be added. Is this a part for the 750Heavy kit or is it another part added to the 1320 lb kit?

Suggestion: Post the photo assembly guides for the CH750 1320 lb kit and clearly identify them as being for the 1320 lb. so as not to confuse them with photo assembly guides for the CH750 Heavy.
And it appears that STOL CH 750 Parts Catalog (1320 lb Edition) was deleted from the builders page. Thanks

Hi Les,
You are much further ahead than I thought !! hahaha that's great.
well, I started out with a plan of having my project done by septempber 2010 but work is getting in the way... i wish I was retired...-:)
But I think that at the pace I'm going september 2011 is more like the timeframe I'm now looking at. I'm trying to keep building on a regular basis but I'm also taking my piloting lessons at the same time.. should be done with that in about 4 months.
I'm very excited and motivated...it's time that i don't have as I whish I had.
When are you planing to have it ready to fly and what engine did you select?
have fun!!

Thanks for the offer Les but I have everything I need to get me to landing gear stage. And that probably won't be till about July. Drive safely..... Fred

That is great Wes.
We need to make a run to Spencer but don't know yet when.
It will be either late Sat. afternoon, Sunday between church and the SB game, or Monday afternoon.

Back in Sheldon. I talked to Joyce at ZAC Thursday about my parts. The big item I need is the flaperon torque tube. They should send it and a couple of small items along with you. We are planning to go to Spencer in the next three or four days so we can get together then if that works out

Wow we are practically neighbors.
I built my rudder at the factory workshop the weekend of the open house in September at which I also had a demo ride and plunked down my deposit.
I went to Mexico and picked up my complete kit on Jan 15. I am itching to rivet some metal. As I write this, I am in Wimberley, Texas to finish moving some stuff out of a place I sold here back in April 08. Then when I get back Wednesday I need to set up a workbench in the basement to get some parts assembled and along with some of the factory parts prepare a show-and-tell presentation for the EAA chapter 1295 meeting on Feb 12th. And then there will a few days before my wife and I leave on a cruise till March 2.
But, I'm sure I can get together with you in the meantime. We are doing a lot of remodeling and go to Spencer Menards every few weeks so I can come to you or if you find yourself out here give me a call at 712-324-3596. I'm also retired, so my schedule is flexible in spite of being busier than a one-armed juggler.
I look forward to meeting you. .... Fred
