OK, Sometimes UGLY Can Be Fun To Fly... The Zenith CH 701 & CH 750

(4 videos - see all)

 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 for more details. (be advised: their website is almost as ugly as their airplanes, but I'm not holding that against them)

I thought Ugly at first 2, till I flew the Demo CH750 she is beautiful. Handles like a dream, and the kit looked easier to build than any others I looked at, so I bought one. I'm a couple months into the build and couldn't be happier with the kit and support from Zenith. I'm really enjoying building the CH750.

Can hardy wait to fly her around, and go air camping.

Thanks Martt,

Ditto to Mike's comments. I am also assembling a kit. I think the confidence I am gaining will result in me building a more "beautiful" plane after building and flying my 750. So Martt, maybe your post will fit into your Saving General Aviation catagory.
