Two build sessions to cover this week. Lots of progress. I think we are now at 90% done, 50% to go! (As opposed to 90% done, 90% to go).
Sebastien Heintz and Roger Dubbert from Zenith Aircraft made a visit to EAA HQ to plan our One Week Wonder project for AirVenture Oshkosh 2014. For those that haven’t heard, EAA volunteers will be building a CH-750 Cruzer in one week. They stuck around the next day to help out on our CH-750.
Tom and Jerry removed the magnetos and accessory case in order to cut off the pull starter “pinion” that just gets in the way of our new B&C Specialties starter.
I (Charlie) installed the battery box. We are using a Aerovoltz battery. Super small and lightweight. Tiny!
Tom fired up the Dynon SkyView for the first time. Exciting!
Steve at Aircraft Specialty donated one of their flap switches. I really like this design to replace the basic toggle switch. You’ll be able to know it is the flap switch without looking. Nice!
Poly-Fiber generously donated all the paint we will need for the aircraft. It arrived on a palate so we unpacked it and inspected it for shipping damage.
Thanks Poly-Fiber!!!Maybe next time I’ll share the paint scheme.
