I would like to hear from any builder regarding his experience in trying to install the folding wing option during the construction of the CH-750. I am aware that it would be easier to add the option, once the plane was built, however I have not as yet reached that point, and installing the various components during the build, would make for a neater installation.

Once the installation is completed, I also see another problem in trying to detach the flaperon bracket in order to fold the wing for transportation. Since I don't have access to the inner channel, how am I expected to undo the nut and bolt holding the flaperon bracket to the flaperon control rod 75-C-1-10 since there is no access to the inner channel once it's riveted to the side of the fuselage. ?

I would very much appreaciate hearing from anyone who has, or is planning to install the folding wing option on their CH-750. ?

This topic sounds like it should be a discussion forum (to solicit the feedback you are requesting) as opposed to a blog post. Also, since it is model specific, it would be best to start the discussion within the STOL CH 750 group...
