steve I'd welcome the idea of coming up , but more than anything to go flying in are own planes, wouldn't that cool?  Thanks for the comments  it was a dog getting all that stuff in there.  I have since put screws on both top arm  and baggage rests just to be Shure. I'm hopping to have my plane done by September.

hi steve  sorry i didn't get back sooner but for some reason this showed up on one of your old post,  but i thought i told you but when i went to mexico i bought the fuselage kit i thought as slow as i've been i'll never finish.   I have also decided to cut the elevator crank off of the torque tube  I'll post some pictures as soon i can.  thanks again for your inspirations and help ron

thanks steve  I have not tried to fit the cabin frame but should be o.k. for some reason instead of 714 m.m. spread at the attach points I have 720 but I talked with calib before he left and he gave me the fix, but told me that was not unusual . i'm going to use a covair motor and am working with w.wynne and dan weserman on that see that yours is coming alone nicely, hope that some day some we can all go flying together soon. thanks again  ron

hi Steve it looks like your really getting close to finishing.  Have you found your engine yet/ as I recall your thinking of using an o 200? I now have everything but the fus done and have started that I'm going with the 3100cc covair from W W .  My target to finish is late September this year.  those #$@^% slats were a real codnokker for me the worst part of the build so far, a lot of work for no more that I'm going to use them.(going with v- gees

Steve, if you need any fuel system parts, let me know.  Gascolator, electric fuel pump, fittings, clamps.

thanks steve but it's a really sloooooowwww go  as you know I started plans build, but when I went to mexico for the open house I bought the fuselage  the wing that you se is the secoud wing should have it done in a bought two weeks then the slats and flaperons I'm going to paint it before it leaves the shop.  I know that if I had tried to build every part as slow as I have been I'd probably never finish

hi steven

I was half way across to the hamathco ice fields from Vancouver island when I noticed the oil pressure dropping slightly and the temps going up a little .I had drawn a line on the map where I figured I would be at the point of no return if I had any kind of problems and I was right over that line. so I decided to give the throttle a little push to see if the engine was labouring and sure enough the rpm didn't go up at all so I turned around and called cambell river air port that I was having a problem, I told them that I would be coming straight in on 31 if I made it that far .anyway I made it, well almost ,my main wheels touched the grass in front of the runway and my nose wheel hit the tarmack  the motor ran about 5 minutes without any oil which got me close to land, the rest was a nice quiet glide .I had some other options like the beach or a field but I just kept getting closer to the air port and that's were I left my plane for a couple of days  until I could get a trailer to pick it up .

 glad I built a 701 it was still flying at 30 mph as I cleard the light towers at the end of the runway
