Who likes building LSA planes?

For a very special project, I'm looking for someone in the U.S. with decent building skills and an affinity for Light sport Aircraft.

Geographic proximity to Oshkosh, Wisconsin would be of help or if you will be travelling to Oshkosh for this year's AirVenture

The work to be done basically is building my forthcoming plane model, which will be somewhat more sophisticated than my regular models.

Anyone interested please contact me through replying, pm-ing or contacting me through my website.

Chris

Chris,

I'm definitely into the whole LSA aircraft movement. I am currently teaching students in the J-3 Cub and an Apollo Fox LSA, and have flown some others including the Pipistrel Virus and Cessna 162 Skycatcher. I'm excited to see that you might be working on an LSA!

The Model is Finished and Delivered

The model Chris Stahl asked me bulld for EAA is a Zenith Aircraft STOL CH801 flown by "Medicine on the Move," (MOM) a nonprofit group that uses LSAs (Zenith 701 & 801) to deliver medicines to remote areas in Ghana, West Africa. MOM is trying to raise funds to put floats on their CH801 and the model will be auctioned off at a Zenith owners banquet on Thursday night. (That was news to me when I delivered the model at the EAA Oshkosh Fly-In today.)

Chris Stahl's kit of the CH801 is beautifully designed with excellent fit and finish. I reinforced some of the parts and joints on the assumption that it would have to travel but made no other changes. I put lead weight in the cowl and in the nose of each float and a ceramic magnet in the fuselage behind the cockpit. The magnet holds the model on its stainless steel stand. If I were doing it again, I'd use two magnets (each about the size of a dime and 3/16" thick). The model sticks to the stand but will come loose with moderate jostling.

The kit will eventually be available as a free download on the MOM site: Home.

This was certainly not a beginner's kit but it went together very well and I recommend it to anyone who likes light planes.

The kit 1/33 scale (wingspan just under 12") with a detailed cockpit and wheels-or-floats option. I believe Chris is working on a detailed engine for the kit, as well. I spent about 25 hours on the kit and enjoyed building it very much.

Thanks, Chris!

Ch801

Hi.

As always Chris never stops to amaze!
This model surely proofs he is one of the best paper model designers out there.
(my opinion)
This is yet another perfect model. Can't wait to put my hands on it.

This is a pretty awesome build. Congratulations on a perfect job.

You can spot quality at a very quick glance. This one has it, both in design and execution of build. Without the transparencies, much of the magic would be gone. Very good work to include those, and to execute them so well!

I am very happy about the choice of subject here. The subject area of emergency & aid flights is a truly worthy one. I believe there may be a number of these light, previously sport, aircraft to model.
