Currently on holiday in Bendigo (Vic, Australia) so dropped in to Bendigo Airport where Allan Barton has his beautiful 750 and 601. Allan very kindly took me up for a flight in his 750, which has inspired me to redouble my efforts on my scratch-built 701.
The plane flew beautifully, especially impressed with the digital instrumentation and "professional" extras such as carby heat, boost etc.
The aircraft is surprisingly roomy with the bubble doors, which I'll be getting too. I also like the way the 750's trailing edges are folded instead of soft riveted - I'll be changing mine to that method too, as well as including a full length electric trim tab on the port elevator.
Many thanks to Allan for the flight, his patience with my endless questions and for inspiring me!
