Does Zenith make a dual stick conversion for the 701,Or do I have to make a conversion of my own?

Hi Wayne,


No conversion for the CH701 that I have seen from Zenair. It's been done ...As I did.

I'll post pictures of that change.

Take you time and use the string.... we use blocks (tall ones) to hold the wing tips and then move them in bit by bit. It takes a while and needs constant 'check check check and check again'. Remember that there is a range and to measure at the right points. I like to use two rulers to get the string to wing dimension right.

If you can do it in a hangar so that the sun and elements do not scorch you whilst you scratch your head over this bit...

Patience is a virtue and virtue is a grace but building airplanes will try your patience and lose your grace by virtue of the job...
