It looks like my CH701 will be written off so I am wondering if there is a market for serviceable parts. The response to this blog will have a bearing on whether I make an offer for the wreck. The empenage and starboard wing are un-touched and many other parts. Aftar running into a ditch, the front undercarriage, cowling prop & fuselage are beyond economic repair. Don Bowtell 01920464585.

Friend of mine crashed his Van's RV-9A after an engine failure and donated the airframe to the local junior college A&P program and took a $25,000 tax write off. Just a thought.

Thats a great disapointment for you, I Know how many hours you put into the build.
Is the engine mount ok? and the engine ok, were you under power when the prop struck? If they are ok i am interested along with the instruments and a few other bits and bobs. I'll give you a call.
Regards, Andrew.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune and I'd guess that the parts are marketable. Too far to ship to me though.
