finished riveting left flap....or at least so I thought....

Riveted my ch650b left flap, and ran into the "trailing edge opposing rivet won't fit" problem. No big deal; Will unrivet trailing edge and see if I can convince 2 rivets to share the same space!

CH650B Aileron trim L angle support

Posted on December 12, 2011 at 2:41pm 1 Comment

Does anyone know how long the L angles are supposed to be for the trim servo support?  ie, do they extend all the way under the leading edge of the aileron, or just up to the leading edge of the trim servo?

UL350is performance in hotter climates

Posted on November 10, 2011 at 3:22pm 1 Comment

Phoenix hot i mean;)  Since i'm just putting wings together, I will need a fuel return line if I chose the UL engine.  So my decision may come sooner than i had planned.


Does anyone know of any cooling issues with this engine similar to others?   I'll be flying mainly in the Phoenix area.


Also, Are the 650 extended range tanks plumbed for a return line?


Thanks mucho!!  



Wing and CH650B photo guide questions

Posted on October 26, 2011 at 2:37pm 4 Comments

Hey Folks,

I have a few questions.

I'm currently working on the 650B wings, and will likely go with a single dynon skyview display...i will be using the dynon AOA pitot which i will have to purchase now.  

1.  Are there any other sensors/components that have to be installed in the wing for skyview?  (besides AOA Pitot)

2.  Does the Dynon AOA pitot come with a cable assembly, and if not, from your experience, where can such a cable be acquired (or i can make) and…

Hi Peter

No, I was in Corwallis in 76.  I just wanted to let you know my 701 is powered by a ULPower 260iS, the 107 hp version.  The first 25 hours of flight were conducted in some of the hottest weather I have seen 95 to 105 F.  The ULPower performs exceptionaly well with no cooling issues at all.  I flew it back from Ontario to Nova Scotia.  Great engine.  If you have any questions feel free to give me a call/email.
