Has anyone ever put a H-700 wing on a H-295? And if not could it be done?

The attach fittings and carry thru are completely different.  So, the problem is that you need to either use the H-295 type carry-thru and attach fittings or the 700/800 type.  To put it another way, I can't see how one type of carry thru will mate with the other type of wing attach fitting.

So it can be done. I was thinking that it might be a fix for the H250 -h395 wing problems and a boost in stol performance.

The answer is No!!

Clarence Brent changed the wing carry-thru for H-700/800 to supersede the original AD for all other Helio's. The Helio 800/700 are not affected by the AD..

The attachment points are at a different location, as Ken pointed out

Thus, you cannot install 295 wings on the 800 airframe or 800 wings on the 295 airframe..
