Hi Conrad... Thank you for the info on your seats... I will call them & see what kind of price i can get.... I did purchase the hi-tech foam which I think your referring to as well so I think i'm ok in that regard.... If you do make it out west next summer & you find yourself near southern Alberta please give me a call or send me a e-mail prior to your trip.... we'd love to see your plane & exchange idea's etc.... we have a very active flying club here & have fly-in's throughout the summer, I hope to have my plane in the air sometime next summer as well.  Thanks again.  Guy.

Conrad...If you visit NS drop in to see us in South West NS. My waterdrome is CGE2 and our grass strip(2200') is CLE4, just across the harbour in East Pubnico. I flew from Ottawa to Bridgewater this summer with a CH701 completed by Brian Parsons.

Hi Conrad,

Double Congrats ! First for finishing up your project, it looks real nice. Second, for having the patience to go through MD-RA/TC Registration/inspection process.

Now, the REAL fun begins !

You noticed my paint scheme.  I think I still have a print out of a photo of OBS around here someplace.  I'm an MNR brat and have always like the PAS paint scheme.  Yellow and black is the most visible colour combination.


I located in Fort Frances, ON.

If I had it to do over again, I don't think I would it any different.  I built my plane to match my flying and situation.  I am more interested in the fuel and electrical lines having the least amount of connection than I was ease of removing the wing.  I could not picture a reasonable situation where I would need to remove the wings..and if I did, I would unhook the fuel line at the tank and cut/splice the wires.  Just because this is what I did, does not mean there is not a better or more conveniant way to do it which would fit your needs.  If you have the time and energy, and think you would like to quick diconnect your wing...go for it.  I don't really see any downside.   With that said, if you are planning on folding your wings after every flight or even on a regular basis for storage, I think this opens up significant oportunity for trouble....IMHO.

Cheers, Mike

Hi Conrad,

I saw your comment and I'm not sure if we are talking about the same picture.  We are driving in the right lane and I was only a few miles from the airport.  I'm good friends with the local highway patrol and they gave me an escort.  Taking the wings off would have been a big pain...I'm glad I did not need to.  You mentioned draining fuel...not sure what you are talking about.  We just loaded the plane up and drove it to the airport fuel and all.  have a good one.
