Here's an interesting note for those of you with a 701,750, or 801.  My good friend just got a violation in his RV4 from a "Friendly" FAA examiner at our local airport.  The violation was for exceeding 30 degrees of pitch on takeoff, which requires all occupants of the aircraft to be wearing a parachute by the FARs if you are carrying a passenger.  Even though the RV4 was not equipped with an attitude indicator, the examiner's judgement is going to be enough evidence to support a 30-day suspension of my friend's license.  So be careful of steep takeoff attitudes in your Zeniths if you are carrying a passenger, unless you both are wearing parachutes.
