CH 701 is being constructed in my front living room!

The bad news is time flies.

The good news is your the pilot.

This will be a what I hope to be the lightest 701/Corvair out there when completed.


It wil be powered with a ,Corvair 3000cc/3 Litre.

It is also being built from the get-go without slats and utilizing VG's instead!

John, I wrote you a couple of years ago on the question of importing your 701 into Ecuador, and never heard back from you.  Let me know if you got my email and if you've brought your aircraft with you to Ecuador, or are still thinking of doing that.  I do know quite a bit about the rules and procedures.

Congrats on putting your money into something that will last instead of the drinks. You will also find you will have more time and ambition.

I think the Corvair is a good choice, I have run mine about 40 minutes and it sounds nice.

Good Luke with the build.

Dave
