First Cross Country - 2W6 to KFFA and back - Door failure

Having completed Phase I, my brother Frank and I flew our Zenith CH 750 STOL to First Flight airport , KFFA, for our first real cross country on Friday, June 8th.I flew most of the way down, we had a nice visit and Frank flew back.  Departing Kitty Hawk ,KFFA, we stopped for gas at Currituck, KONX.  We then departed Currituck for the 95 minute flight home.  Minutes into that flight, my door failed catastrophically in flight and crushed in on me.  While Frank dialed up the closest airport…See More

Nose Gear Tire Pressure CH 750 STOL

Little bit of tire rubbing on pilot side of nose gear when we towed the aircraft for the first time today. Rubbing is slight and against about 1/2-2/3 if tire wall.Ideas:1. Pressure of tire: 15 lbs PSI - is this correct?2. Nose wheel tire slightly out of round due to sitting or manufacturing tolerances? A local 701 owner suggested this when I showed it to him at 2W6 today.3. Tire rubbing issue appears that it would be resolved by shortening the copilot side wheel spacer 3/32" while lengthening…See More

I thought I had left flying and the dreams of building an airplane behind me when my youngest brother, an Air Force special ops helo pilot, infected me with his enthusiasm while on his tenth combat deployment. He returned from Afghanistan last spring and exactly seven days later we were building our rudder in Mexico, Missouri! Now, we are living the dream!

Hi William.  I bought the Data Logger from Viking.  It's fun and logs a lot.  Still learning it.

I initially pitched my prop at 19 degrees.  Increasing in 1 degree increments for testing, currenlty at 22 degrees for next test.  Max speed on previous engine was 114mph.  Initial speed on V130 was 126mph at 19 degrees pitch.  Max speed thus far was 152mph at 21 degrees pitch.  I don't think I'll go any faster, even though the airplane/engine are capable.  Too close to Vne in level flight.  I have a modified XL that I built and have about 200 hours on.  See January 2015 issue of Experimenter for pictures.

Welcome to the forum. I completed my 750 with a Rotax 2 years ago. Have the plane at Suburban Airport in Laurel. Tom Cline, just involved in a plane crash at Ft Meade this past weekend, is working on a 750 in same hangar with me. If you need anything or want to look at completed or partial done 750 let me know.
