CH-601xlb with Viking 130 engine trip to Marion, Iowa (C17)

On 6 July 2018 was able to fly my CH-601 to Marion, Iowa (C17) and back. Got to visit with my younger brother and wife. It was as always a special visit. I’m so lucky to be able do this on a day when his health is good. That is why I enjoy my CH-601 equipped with the Viking 130 engine.

My original engine failed me twice on trying to make this journey.

Have about 91 hours on the Viking 130…


Great visit with Charles Leonard

Hi richard

i made the boots from siliconized fiberglass fire cloth you can get it at welding supply store .we use it at my shop to protect delicate parts when welding above them like a drop cloth .its very flexable and just wont burn ,i just sewed a offset cone and mouted it to the fire wall with a stainless flange and some pop rivets

            I have a web site w/ all my pics. . I am running a Jabiru 3300 and a Prince P-Tip prop that is 58 X 48. Paint job is my own design and I did all the paint, including the flames. I, also, did the upholstery, panel, etc.  I don't mean to sound braggy, just stating the facts. I was determined from the start to do it all myself. Just sayin'...

Hi Richard,

We are putting a Corvair engine with a Warp Drive prop.  I am building the plane and my husband Craig is building the engine.  I think we will be using the Dynon system.  I havent made a decission on that yet.

I don't think he sells stuff.  He's another builder.  He might have contact info on his web site if you have questions for him.
