Ron...I'm doing pre-cover inspection now on my CH701. How may drill holes for drainage did you inspector specify ? Were drain holes specified in the wings in addition to the fuselage ?

Thanks for the compliments on the 701 videos, I try hard to share what’s going on. My airport identifier is 12WV, it is on airnav also if u want to look it up. Glad your staying with a 701,I really like the way they perform, I have you beat a little on the time, I have about 570 on mine, over 100 of those in the last year!

stay in touch and if u want to drop in sometime let me know.
