A cheap aircraft hoist

My Zenith builder partner and I were looking for a cheap way to house our 750 and 650 aircrafts in a single hangar and save some expense, this is our solution built from a modified Harbor freight lift table.  The 750 is lifted high enough to roll the 650 under the wing and then lowered again.  The table is rated for 1000 lbs. and…See More

Zenith CH 650 Airframe completed

I ordered my Jabiru 3300 03/04/2013, looks like a 2 or 3 month wait for the arrival, in the meantime it's back to building Radio controlled planes for a while.

Well I just got my kit, and was building the ailerions. yes 10 weights on each one is also what I came up with just by holding it where it would be fastened.  The 1st part I was going to make was the elevator but was missing 4 pcs. The spar doublers. So I started on the ailierons instead. being missing those peices I decided to do a complete inventory check off list. That is all I was missing.

  I do agree it is a challange. I noticed the disc does not contain everything. I figure like this.  1st. use the inventory list to get all the parts together to make whatever part Your making. Familerise myself with those parts then use print and disc to see how they go together. Using the inventory list, that way we don't miss anything.
