Lift hooks

I wanted everyone to see the lift hooks I installed on a 750

Not made from any plans ,and I didn't do any engineering on the material thickness , I just knew I wanted I thinker than the material in the upper spar carry though . I figure if it was thicker than that I would be more than enough

You wouldn't need then that often , but they would be handy

I will also be adding temporary strut fairings.

Anything above a 10kt total gain is going to be endurance.

Kirk from Dynon was able to attend this year and had on display the …
