I can't keep the CH 750 Cruizer at an airport so anyone have experience with removing and re-attaching the wings for trailer transport?
I have began installation of the Advanced Flight Systems Inc. avionics panel in my 601XLB. It contains mostly Dynon equipment. I would surely appreciate any and all input on successful placement of the remote boxes that attach. E.g., ADAHRS, ELT, remote magnetic compass, etc.…Continue

Saturday July 11th,2015
On friday, I had talked with Robert W who owns a Bushcaddy R-120 and we had decided to fly together to St-André Avellin fly-in. I would try to follow him in his plane with the 701. His plane being a little faster than mine, I would take off first and he would follow, then pass me and I would follow. Since I wasn't sure my mixture adjustment was fine, I asked that he waited for my OK to takeoff. If the problem was still there, I would catch a ride with…Continue
This is also my first post here. I have finished my empennage and started on the fuselage today. I drilled all the stiffeners and longerons on the bottom skin.
Today I drilled the longerons for the left aft side fuselage skin. Also cut the lateral stiffeners. This is my first post to the group. I started the project at a Zenith workshop on 5/21/15. I have completed the rudder, horizontal stabilizer, elevator and trim tab, bottom aft fuselage skin and right aft fuselage skin. I have had to be out of town for about half of the time since I started the project. Won't have to travel as much in the future and plan to spend more time on the plane. …Continue

My 750 stol kit is arriving monday .I am pretty excited about it. I am very impressed with the quality of the parts and the support I have received from zenith. I am hoping to have my strip done this fall but am not sure how wide to make it.I am thinking about 90 feet. Any suggestions?
I am trying to find out the correct information on this, so if you are just speculating on the correct answer, don't bother. The question is: If a STOL CH750 is licensed as an experimental is it possible to change it back to an LSA or go from LSA to experimental. I have a private license which will allow flying a LSA whereas a LSA license will not allow private privileges (of course). I heard…Continue

I installed the viking spring system tonight, but had some trouble adjusting it and would like some feedback. How stiff should the nose wheel be after adjusting tension with the side nuts?
The reason I ask is that i've got mine bottomed out and it still doesn't seem stiff…Continue
The other day I decided go through my collection of over 20,000 airplane-related pictures and selected some of my favorites to put on one of my digital picture frames. I chose about 900 pictures for the picture frame than, having gone to all that effort, wondered what else to do with the collection. I decided to upload them to my Microsoft OneDrive for the enjoyment of my extended family, flying partners and anyone else with a…Continue
Made the trip I've been trying to make before starting the 701 build. It was a long road but the pay off was worth all the work. Took off from home airport PAOT, Kotzebue AK, to PAIK Kiana, picking up the Kobuk River and following it to the great sand dunes. the most northern desert in the world. Was one of the most fantastic trips I've made in the 701. Here are some pictures. ill add more pics later…Continue
