– for the first time – a video that takes the frustration and anxiety
out of a complex building process! The instructor shows you step
by step how to build by demonstrating and explaining!
– eliminate the time required to decode and understand the plans.
Any complex aircraft project
requires hours of analysis to comprehend the drawings and blueprints
before starting the build process. Because this is a critical area upon
which the whole project depends, much more time is spent in analysis
than is ever originally budgeted. This phase cannot be rushed! The
video greatly reduces this time by providing and demonstrating the
sequence of events in the build process so you can spend your time
actually building rather than analyzing plans.
Observe a well known phenomena associated with projects as large and
complex as building an aircraft: when a stumbling block is encountered
in the building process, and support is not conveniently available
(maybe - on a weekend when you want to build!), progress is halted until
suitable help has been obtained. Aircraft projects are notorious for
sitting partially completed all over the world – because of a ‘bump in
the road’ – usually a procedure or assembly that is not clearly
understood. Don't get bogged down. Watch the video to see how it is
Save MONEY – fewer
errors in assembly means less parts are ruined.
Everyone makes mistakes when
building… drilling in the wrong places.. parts cut or trimmed in the
wrong way… performing tasks that are out of sequence and having to take
things apart and do them over….. parts get ruined or compromised…
‘extra’ drilled holes cannot be easily hidden. Everyone has to re-order
a part or two (maybe more!) when a mistake is made in cutting, drilling,
or bending. This video will save more than its price by preventing the
accidental destruction of expensive kit components by allowing you to
watch the building before attempting it yourself.
Build a BETTER LOOKING
plane – by watching!
Many of the cosmetic
deficiencies in our pride and joy are the result of building errors. It
is not hard to imagine that a near perfect job is practically impossible
when we attempt a procedure for the very first time. By watching some
one else make the bend, drill the hole, cut the part – we have a much
better chance of doing it right. The result is a better looking, safer aircraft. Learn from others’ mistakes
Make your building
experience more ENJOYABLE –
Your investment in time is
actually more important than the dollar value for the kit. Building a
plane takes a long time and much of this time can be a bit nerve racking
- always wondering if it is being done 'right'. Having to buy new
components or starting over on an assembly that was performed in error
is not a pleasant experience – but is typical. By eliminating the
guesswork throughout the build process, your time is a lot more
enjoyable as you are eliminating so many ‘unknowns’ by watching someone
else who has done it before. Even scratch builders – those that are
building from plans rather than the kit – can make their building
experience smoother, faster and cheaper with this video as the basic
need for guidance in sequencing the component assembly is still
Make use of the
experience of those that have prior experience building this plane!
Yes, you can build the CH701
without this video. Many have done this quite successfully. But what
you gain by watching someone show you the steps and demonstrating the
tricky procedures is savings in precious TIME, and elimination of the
aggravation that comes with having to figure out pieces of a puzzle.
Most people find other aspects of building more enjoyable than worrying
about how to accurately interpret blueprints!
This double set (2 DVDs) is a single
volume in a series of videos being developed to cover the entire build
process for the CH701 kit. FORWARD FUSELAGE is meant to
follow the building progress where the
volume left off. You need to have completed the construction
demonstrated in this previous volume as a prerequisite.
Click here for more information on
this volume. Future DVDs in this series from HomebuiltHELP will continue
the building process of the CH701 kit.
Visit this website for future announcements on the availability of
additional volumes for building instruction for the other major
assemblies of the CH701 aircraft. (tail, wings, etc)
Note: This production is not
associated or endorsed by Zenith Aircraft. It does not replace or
supersede the documentation provided with the kit. It is meant to
be an aid in building the aircraft and its methods are presented only as
a suggestion to builders.
This affordable double DVD video is approximately 4
hours in length . The $40 price includes handling
