Christopher Desmond and his reptilian STOL CH 701 were prominently featured in General Aviation News magazine (August 4, 2006 issue). Excerpt:

You can tell a lot about the flying habits of a pilot by the kind of aircraft he or she owns. For example, one look at Christopher Desmond's Zenith CH 701 and you would probably surmise that he's a pilot who likes to head for the back country where riverbanks are the runways and the fish normally die of old age.
And you would be correct.
"You can just tell by looking at it that it has great STOL characteristics," said Desmond, who hails from Sebastopol in Northern California. "It's also a very rugged airplane."

Scratch-building the STOL CH 701 Brazil Building from scratch (plans-only), the builders first have to fabricate the dies and forming blocks, and then build all the individual parts (that make up the STOL CH 701 kit).

"Sam" Hott and his favorite birds "My name is Klaus "Sam" Hott and after having retired as a jet pilot in the German Naval Air Arm I fly Learjets in a target demonstration role. Just recently I flew my 701 to work at Hohn Airbase in Germany. I then flew two flights for the Army in the Learjet, where tanks fired at the targets (which you can see attached to the Lear wings).  After those flights I climbed back into my 701 and returned home after a very relaxing flight on a beautiful day. What more can you ask for?
I extremely enjoy flying the STOL CH 701 - it is so different from my other flying - that's the fun!"

"The Zenith literature package is easily the most complete package I have received from any light aviation company, and I’ve seen many other good ones among the hundreds I have studied. Lots and lots of information is presented with some lovely graphics. The literature alone is impressive, but the volume of information will keep you reading for hours. You can get a good idea of what you're buying without ever leaving your chair."
