Never laid eyes on it but considered buying it a couple years ago when it came up for sale in Kentucky. I spoke with the seller at length, arranged to drive up and see it, but decided to pass and build instead. Have you tried searching the members section for a 701 owner near Live Oak? Would be good to have someone with you who knows the 701.
Hi James , If it's flying have the owner fly it down to Sebring Aviation Show , the boys and other from the Zenith Factory could probably have a look at it and and advise you. I will be at the Show on Saturday and I would be glad to look it over. Tks Wayne
If the info you are stating is correct you are Way Over Weight. 96 gallons of fuel? Doesn't seem right to me , mind is only 21 gallons max. What was your climb out speed indicating? 450 ft/min would be minimum. But need more info to compare.
