My CH750 Cruzer Build will be Live Streamed

I would not call this video exciting, but I'm starting a new YouTube series to document the building of my Zenith CH750 Cruzer. This Introduction shows the new format, which uses 3 cameras to film the construction and shows off the workshop. Once construction starts, in a few weeks, the work will be live streamed. Each day of work will then be compressed into time lapse at 60 times normal speed. I am not trying to become YouTube famous, just document the entire process of building a kitplane.…See More

I have built 3 Zodiacs in the past to different stages of completion, but had to sell them. I am now working on the CH750 Cruzer kit and live stream and record time-lapse videos of the work on my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/toddmosborne or my personal web site at http://toddosborne.net

I earned my private license in 1989 and my instrument rating in 2006. I am a software engineer for Quest Software, have 3 adult daughters, a wife, and live in Oak Island, NC. I would very much like to meet other builders in the area.
