I am currently flying an Alarus CH2000 which is a certified two place low wing, similar to the experimental CH640 four place.  What I am wondering is if anyone has experience flying the 640 and the STOL 750 and can comment on how close the handling is on them.  My mechanic says that the Alarus has the glide slope of a brick, which sounds about what a 750 is.  Just wondering how close they are to one another, thank you.

I can’t speak to the CH2000 or CH640, but I have flow the CH601 (which seems similar) and the CH750. They fly differently. I think that transition training would be worthwhile if going from the low wing Zodiac style to the STOL series of aircraft.

Thanks for the info, I was not sure how similar the two would fly, so it is good to have the input.  Looks like as I get close to completion I will have to see about some transition training, thanks again.
