Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Thanks Gary, I shall do what you are suggesting and hopefully get it all sorted, because I like flying this aircraft.
Yestreday I checked my flywheel bolts (jabiru 2200, 80hp) and replaced the battery to get ready for winter. My vhf is very noisey so I am trying to locate the cause.
I think the airplane you are looking for is the Savannah VG. I own a Zenith 701, but am not happy with its performance and plan to start building the Savannah VG soon. I will be using the Rotax 912S from my Zenith 701 in the Savannah, and selling the 701 airframe. The performance difference is amazing. Too bad Zenith hasn't recognized the improvements ICP made on the 701/750 design and incorporated them in their own aircraft.
what i had read and learn is that if i modified the plane from its originals plans the FAA could reject the airworthiness certificate unless i get an writen approval from the manufaturer so i think i will have to stick with the wing slats
I flew mine for the first few months with no slats,not sure about the legal aspects,but be wary of your stall characteristics.Mine became very violent.If you do want to sell ,let me know. I might have a keen buyer
