Main and Center Spar Layout, Alignment and Drilling

I finally drill out the holes to final size for attaching the main and center spars together.

Reversed Main Landing Gear

As purchased, the main landing gear was reversed to put the gear 4 inches forward (see photos) to help the builder better hold off the nose gear when landing.  I plan to put it back to its intended (correct) position.  The engine is an O-235.

What is the best method to support the airframe when removing the main gear and reattaching it?

First engine run of my UL350iS installed on my CH750 STOL

Thanks to the combined effort of my good friends James Yeh, retired air force mechanic, Righard Chen, avionics engineer of CTLS, on the memorable afternoon of May 24th 2018, again through combined effort, I started my 350iS for the first time, fuel fed via a makeshift fuel tank on the ground (due to limited workshop space, wings and empennage will be attached in the field), getting rid of the vapor lock took some doing; after pumping for a few times, and religiously waiting > 5 minutes after… Continue

My build log online

Up until now I’ve been using a paper logbook but taking a lot of pictures for my own reference later (and for the memories).

It occurred to me that Wordpress would make a great build log platform (and it is free, my favorite word!). I was originally just going to set it to private, but since a lot of people want to see the progress I figured what the heck…
