Re: CH 701

I am looking for the drawings to make up the radiator mounting brackets for my CH701.I am using the rotax ring mounting and unfortunetly my plans only show radiator mounting for the old style of engine mounting.Possibly this drawing would also be in the CH750 plans.
Thanks in advance

Re: CH 701

Short update on the build. The 4 fuel tanks have now been welded and pressure testing commenced. Sorted out a few tiny leaks so hoping final pressure testing finds all welds sealed. So the plan to start fitting tanks in the wings is now on hold sadly. I have been run over by an uber taxi here in the...
