My Aircraft will be slightly slower due to the drag of my STOL type aircraft. So, maybe 75-85 will be

realistic as an expectation. About to finish my fuel tanks this spring and a goal for me is that the wings MUST be on this summer. It was a pleasure to read about this Corvair powered 601. I believe that the Corvair is a real performer, and I…

Mike, your doing a great job on you 750. The work is professional quality. I hope to fly in with the 701 as soon as the weather breaks. We will have to form our own dawn patrol as soon as you and Vic finish your planes. Keep up the good work.

Bought a 701 rudder from a friend who had two. I updated this rudder to 750 specs according to Zenith with a new spar that was .032" from the original thickness. It is now ready to install asap when I get my kit finished in the near future.
