Seriously, I've had a bit of an 'aha' moment today watching videos and reading spec sheets on the CH 701 and CH 750 from Zenith. The 'airplane design snob' in me has never taken a serious look at these 'most ugly' airplanes, but after checking out their dandy STOL performance and ease of construction, I'm really impressed. Whether you're looking at the smaller (Rotax powered) CH 701, or the larger and faster (O-200 or Jabiru powered) CH 750, these baby-bush-planes really look like a ton of fun.
And the best part? From the inside, most of the ugly isn't visible! More of my thoughts on these interesting aircraft before long, but for now, check out these extra videos, and stop by ZenithAir.com for more details. (be advised: their website is almost as ugly as their airplanes, but I'm not holding that against them)
