Phil Owens' CH-801

Completed after a long journey of ten years. I still need to finish the paint, but she flies great! The engine is #5 off the Jabiru 5100 8cyl 180HP line and sports a custom 3-blade Catto prop, just over 800# thrust on a plane with an empty weight of 1240. She just jumps off the ground! Photos are of her first flight; what a blast!

  1. Man that 8 cyl must be SMOOOOth!! My good friend is building an 801 and I am building a CH 640. Any regrets on the engine? What is the weight of the engine?
    Thanks K.C.
