Build Update and Engine Question

Fuselage is finished and working on the tail for my 750SD. I hope to have significant progress by end of this fall. Decided on a Dynon package and will probably be ordering it soon.That brings me to the engine and prop choices.  Although I spoke briefly with a couple of builders about engines at the beginning of the year, (thank you) and although the price gives me pause, I'm still considering the UL520T (UL520iST) engine.  With the passage of time I'm hopeful some folks may now have more…See More

"Hi Bob, I have flown both the CH750 STOL and Cruzer. My choice would be the Cruzer for the extra speed, but in your case STOL would the way to go? That being said it still a good kit to build and can be faster with the Quick Build option? There are…"

Wow, the CH750SD is probably perfect fit for your needs and wishes. It should fit the bill and give you the extra performance and capacity you are seeking ,that the  Standard CH750 could never do. I have seen them building the kits here in the factory and it is Super Duty. The one they have as a demonstrater has the 375 hp engine? But there are lots of options you can use with this plane. Good luck with your building and keep me posted with engine and panel choices, that you decide on.

Hi Bob, I have flown both the CH750 STOL and Cruzer. My choice would be the Cruzer for the extra speed, but in your case STOL would the way to go? That being said it still a good kit to build and can be faster with the Quick Build option? There are some used ones for sale out your way I think? I my self would rather be flying than building,unless you can do both. Good Luck with your decision.
