Hi Randy,  I've got 54 hrs on my 701. I was reading you describe trimming up your plane to fly hands off, is that with just yourself in the plane?  Mine, with a passenger flies nose heavy and trim doesn't have too much effect on it ...it's a good workout for your shoulder after a half hour of constant pressure back on the stick.  Flying single it trims up just fine.  Are you having simular problems?

I tend to install one 'Cessna' type friction adjustable on the left and T bar on the right - it is quite easy to set, but you will need to think about it and check that it doesn't 'jump' the outer sleeve - so it needs 'fixed' at the firewall.

Hope that helps!

Hi Randy. My FWF is from Skyshops, which no longer supplies FWF kits for Zenith models. I like it because it has an airbox with carb heat, so I can pull outside combustion air and get the full 100hp from my 912ULS. I also like the cowl design. George Mueller built a Skyshops FWF 701 and is selling the plane and FWF in separate chunks, but other than that the Skyshop FWF is no longer available. Good luck on your build. The 701 is a blast to fly!

Hi, we are looking for a volunteer CFI - does that interest you.... we train local people as a way of a) funding MoM and b) keeping the airfield operational, c)a source of volunteer pilots - but there are only so many days in the hour - at least if feels that way! ...
