100 Hours!

This last weekend I flew to Dayton, OH (from southern Wisconsin) with my Dad to visit my brother - 258 NM. On the way back the Hobbs meter went over 100 hrs. Whoo Hoo!

Flying my 601XLB

This is Tangier Island we flew to in August.  It's a quaint village struggling against time and climate change and sinking into the bay.  We had a group of four aircraft for this almost 70 mile trip.  There are many great restaurants and normal tourist shops.  If you go it's short and has many frost heaves creating a roller coaster landing and take…

CH601HD Main Gear Spring/Rubber Bungees and Dual Controls???

Hi everybody just starting a build on a CH601HD and this is my first post, I have a few questions.

I see that Viking makes the nose spring bungee kit, I was wondering if anybody makes a similar kit for the main gears on a CH601HD? or if anyone has made their own I would love to see it.

Does anybody have a kit or drawings for dual controls in the CH601HD? I see Zenith has the kit for the later models but not for the CH601HD. Thanks

Dynon p lead resistors

Hope to solve soon but do any of my fellow builders have experience in the total resistor value needed to solve erratic rpm readings on Dynon HDX unit and Continental O -200? Tried 30k, 62k, 92k, off p lead and the display still goes bonkers at rpm exceeding 2300. Thanks in advance.
