Chris:  Found a comment you had made on a autopilot servo.   I see you have a 701, I have  a 750 and have been looking for info on adding 3 axis autopilot to my plane(MGL explorer)

Do you know of anyone with 3 axis on a 750?

Chris, thanks for the reply. The wife and I stayed at oak alley last week and I thought about you being only an hour away from me, wanted to holler and say hello. I was looking around the sky for a 701... I like your plane and photos from the air...

Christ,

Are you still okay with your engine mount mod? I am just curious.

Chris, where do you live?

Thanks Chris.  I am planning on putting some photos up.  I am loving the building so far, the problem is that I had the great idea of moving right next to my local airport in Caldwell.  This airport is very busy with experimental and other type certified aircraft.  I can honestly say I am "ground sick".  :)

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your comment. I may have seen the numbers somewhere else.

From what I undestand around 10 degrees should be a good starting point.

I'll try this for sure.¸

Thanks again.

Regards,

Normand

Chris, I have a 3 blade 68'' power fin on my other plane, And I love it in every way possible, espically setting pitch. They set pitch thru a window on the apex hub on each blade with a feeler guage, you get the exact pitch on each blade, no guessing. Then you do a ground static run up an see your rpm results. A simple chart tells you which way to go with your feeler guage, either add or remove thousands, etc. You can dial the prop in better than any others I've seen. I wouldn't hesitate at all to get one. I got a GSC that came with mine, it does its job but really is a pain to re pitch. Pat

CHRIS IF YOU STILL HAVE YOUR WING TANKS OUT ADD A PLATE TO THE BOTTOM WING SO YOU CAN USE IT FOR A DOOR ANCHOR TO HOLD IT OPEN. ALSO I HAVE SEE THE GUYS WITH BIGGER  OR HEAVER THAT ROTAX ENGINES TO PUT THEIR BATTERY ON A SLIDING RAIL TO GET A PERFECT CG, NOT TO DUMB--YOU HAVE A SAFE ONE AND I HOPE THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY LOOSES YOU ADDRESS AFTER XMAS.

Thanks for the encouragement, Chris. My former Director of Maintenance and I have researched a bunch of kit airplane, and both our votes were for the CH750. True STOL, all metal, well stressed, nice engine options. The turbine 701 in Texas is very interesting; my former employer build that JSF-100, but I know very little about it. Best regards!!!

You know I think I should have built an 801. More complete kit.  Same price for cert engine.   But. I like the fact  that the 750 isa light sport

Yes.  Been working on it every afternoon.   Your plane looks great

Chris, I'm hoping for uneventful, but it will be a big event to finally get off the ground.

How's your 701? I almost bought one.

Hi Chris
Thanks for the kind words. It has been a long haul but I am getting there. I see that you plans built so you would know what I mean. Well done on your achievement.

Thanks for the GOOD JOB!. It's been tough. I'm going to get a rotax as soon as I can. At least I can fly now. Yes, having to hold the doors up is a huge pain, these struts work well and if you notice zenith has them on the 750.

I am in Sikeston, Mo as I write this. We had to camp off site due to deep mud / soft ground and had no Wifi except for one trip to starbucks. Email Sebastien or Roger Dubbert for the prop ID.

I saw 260 F while performing steep turns and stalls. Rotax manual says nominal is 190 to 230. 285 is max. I was flying in the Phoenix Arizona area and it was above 100 F so it was a good test of the oil cooling system. I have a really old Zenith supplied cowl with the oil cooler mounted in front and the radiator underneath the front fuselage. The cowl actually blocks about 1/2 of the oil cooler. I have since cut a 8.25 X 1.5 inch slit in the front of the cowl. After that my oil temps came into the nominal range on a 100 + degree day. I'm happy now. Jerry

Thanks, I did allot of work this weekend. Very satisfing. I can understand looking for the next plane to build. I have a long way to go before thinking about my next one. I start with the plans for the 701 and decided that my engine options were limited, so I upgraded to the 750. Good luck on the next build and happy flying.
