I would be glad to add you as a friend. Cannot say that I know where Wooster is though. How far are you from Columbus? I am presently hiding from winter in Costa Rica. Plan on returning in March or April. My plans built 750 was begun a couple of years ago as a STOL. I had finished (90%) the fuselage and am converting to Cruzer. Have empenage is well under way with rudder and elevator completed and the stabilizer left to assemble (all parts are made or bought). My wings are (were!) coming along well with all the parts made and one of the wings assembled on the table ready to rivet and turned over to do the top. Hope to talk to Caleb on Monday about these wing changes.
I just saw your plane posted as compleated, congratulations!!! I am also scratch building my 750. looks like you did make a few changes. Any real problems you had along the way? Any changes you made out of necessity? I started mine in june of 2010, so far I have a rudder, rear and front fuselage, and controls. My engine will be Lyc. 0-235 that I'm rebuilding. great to here that it can be done. HAPPY FLYING, Paul
I finished my scratch built 701 in April 09 and enjoying the flying but experiencing bad builder's withdrawal symptoms..... I'm very interested to see how you like the 0200 on the plane. Keep in touch.
I am one of six that are each scratch building 750s. I have to tell you that we (our group) arrogantly thought that we might be the first to finish scratch build a CH750. Finding your post made us realize that we won't even be close... We started the first of March and we have only completed the empanage and have just started on the flapperons.
We agree, the plans could be better. But we are having fun and we look forward to having a capable STOL aircraft.
