It begins. The CH750 rudder kit arrived yesterday and today I ordered some additional tools (clecos, handi-clamps, drill bits, etc) from Spruce and Amazon. Now to restore order to the assembly room.

|I have seen a bunch of spinners but nothing like the quality from DUC.

Hi Builders & fliers
This is a video that a good friend made of the first flight of my 650. It is powered by 2850cc 110hp covair. I have 23 hours on the plane now and have no problems. The link is https://vimeo.com/231398395 and the password is tallyho.
