Yahooooooooooooo! Drove to Arcata today and piked up our CH750 kit from FedEx freight! We are so stoked! Couldn't wait to get it home and unpack it! Going thru the packing list tonight to make sure it is all there. What a great way to spend the week before Christmas!

     Oh yeah, we watched the first of the how to videos from "homebuilt" they mentioned the "aircraft standards " booklet. Does anyone know if this is something that was supose to come with the kit and if not where do you get one?  Thanks all! Dave and Patsy

Hey Doug! Great hearing form you and thanks for  the book suggestion and the encouragement! We are having a great time with our build and Rocky ( Dave) is spending an average of 10 to 12 hours a day working on the plane.  Can't hardly drag him in at night to hit the sack! I do not get to spend as much time helping as I would like but it is really not slowing Rocky down a bit! But with Christmas over I will be able to get out in the shop with him more. I am anxious about that!  Truely we are having the time of our lives on this build!  Later! Patsy and Rocky (Dave)

Hi Dave glad you are happy with your kit. We had a great time with you and Patsy at QSP nice to be a part of your dream of flying you own airplane that you built. The complete book for acceptables methods of building and repairing an airplane can be bought from aircraft spruce it is found on page 843 of there new catalog. This is a great overall guide and i suggest everyone who is building and or repairing a aircraft should have it. The part # from spruce is 13-06923 and sells for 16.75. Hope this will be of help have fun and don't stay up to late. Doug&Lori at QSP

The aircraft standards on the the Photo Assembly Guides from ZAC and I think they may be fould on the Builders Site as well (not sure). I found the homebuilt help to be very helpful. I am not sure if they have updated the videos for the increase in gross, so be careful when you follow them. Happy building!

Dave, should have been a CD with your kit. Construction Standards on the CD Photo Guide. Enjoy your build, I am.
