RC / Scale Models of the STOL CH 701
A number of scale model and radio control (r/c) aircraft builders and enthusiasts have constructed plans-built models of the STOL CH 701 and 801 designs from Chris Heintz. The aircraft presents some unique and very effective short take-off and landing features used on few designs.
