Hi Alvin,
I have a single garage attached to the house and and a 12x16 shed in the backyards...between the two I hope to have enough room. Time to start cleaning out the junk!

Alvin , thanks ,I have made many tests at various angles, and have found 4.5 to be ideal for my lake[short] and where I hunt and fish.Chris had apx. 7degrees in first design for 65hp. which with 100hp would take off from the plow,flatter angles increase the air speed, but also extend the takeoff run, the takeoff video I made was at 4.5 and clean[no flaps] and real close to 3.5 seconds from the time of forward movement this seems to be the best compromise....BOB

Thanks Alvin,
I have a friend with a 701 who really wants to put floats on it.
I'll forward him that info.
The biggest brook trout I ever caught was probably smaller than the lure/ bait fish Tom used to catch that monster! :) (6")
I live in Washington and we catch salmon almost that big....occasionally. :)

What kind of floats are those?

Thanks Alvin. I would love to take a ride with you in your 701.
So far I havn't had the experience but if it's anything like a Cessina which I've flown a few times it should be quite a hoot. I have a set of float plans which I was planning on building after I get my bird flying. I was thinking I could use Tundra tires and snow skis until then. My big question is wether to put an 80 hp or spend the extra $$ for the 100hp Rotax. I'm building in my under heated garage so building has come to a standstill while I get some of the honeydoos out of the way.
