"How are you making the yokes?  Is it a version of the way they do it on the CH-640 or something that you developed on your own?  Can't wait to see more progress pictures! :-)"

"I ordered a converted rx1 engine with prsu and clutch. I'm hoping a rotax 912 cowling will fit with minor mods."

"Empennage is finally finished. with the exception of the light fairings. And a very light amount of fine tuning a few clearance spots. FUN."

Hi Steven,

Not even ! When I takeoff I make sure that my feet are on the floor and my toes on the pedals - not on the brakes !!! This is really weird and scary ! Only realized how close that call was AFTER I saw the destroyed rim !

If that had happened landing ... Well, I try NOT to think about it !

For sure I will get to the bottom of this and let you know.

Hi Steven and Tara,

I love what you're doing with your CH750 (?)... Lots of improvements and experimentation. Also love the fact that we can all SHARE our experiences - good or bad !

Keep at it, your bird looks amazing. Hope mine looks anything like yours.

Keep the photos coming, I'll do the same.

Regards,

Norm

Hi Steven and Tara,

No, not making a new wing but replacing the two inward (close to fuselage) ribs by higher ones. Also, Making half ribs to put on top of door tops. Will post pictures when started ! Cheers, Norman

Hi Steven and Tara,

Thanks for the comment...but most of the work (if work it is!) is done by the 701 !!!

Nevertheless, when I think of the 701, I can't believe that I built this thing and that it is so much FUN to fly. Hope you enjoy yours as much (or more) !

Regards,

Normand
