Zenith 601 HDS

Question:I have a hangar neighbor that has a tail and center section on a 601 HDS which is beautiful. I am almost done with my 750. Is there anyone in the Sacramento area that has one? I am concerned with headroom. Is it the same canopy height as a 601/650? Anyone have any comments on whether the non-match hole drilled is a lot harder, or just a little harder than an edition 3 750 with match hole drilling?See More

Deadstick Landing in STOL 750

Here's a link to a deadstick landing at the dry lakebed. Sorry for the poor video, learning how to do it. It's a little steeper approach, but not by much. Probably due to propeller being stopped. More
