We had fun putting this video together to show the folding wing option on our STOL CH750 prototype plane.

Pardon my ignorance. I know this is the prototype and the fold style may have changed.
Looking at this, the front spar disconnects and the wing folds downward.

On the folding photo gallery, it looks like a later design folds by disconnecting the rear spar and folding upward.

Which is the production design?

Well done!
Now, having purchased the 701 folding option with my kit last month, I wonder what Rodger Clarke below means.
I gather the 701 fold is different. I guess I'll read the plans now to see what is involved (forward cross tube).
Are there any videos of a 701 fold? I'd love to see one.

Bring it on for the 701 please.
Sooo much better than the forward cross tube design.
