Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
I'm building a free, community-centric site of builder logs, with a focus on connecting you to useful posts related to what you're working on while you're working on it. e.g. When posting about your Zenith 750 vertical fin, you'll see a tip that was voted helpful by others suggesting you shorten a particular rivet for a better fit.
It will simultaneously be a collection of builders logs and a community-driven knowledgebase for every part of every aircraft kit.
I'm over-simplifying so please check out the description here: https://webuildplanes.com
I'd like to gauge the amount of interest in this idea before I get too deep into it. If this sounds like something you'd use, PLEASE sign up (no commitment or anything - I just want to measure interest). Or if you have any feedback, please send it my way!
Mark: This looks like it could be an excellent resource for builders! I look forward to discussing this with you and to help you develop this.
Absolutely. I have been longing for a 21st century builders log. Hopefully, something that can upload photos directly from your phone.
When working on a project of this magnitude , it is impossible to have too much information . I support you in this effort!
Your page looks amazing, I am absolutely in.
I'm in. The ability to access and reference timely information and advice is very important. Thank you. Please keep me posted.
Mark this will be a fantastic resource for builders and a way of connecting people with common issues and solutions. Not many Zenith builders here in Western Australia to bounce things off.
My complete Kit arrives in Australia early August so am looking forward to see your site up and running soon.
Awesome I am interested
I'm glad to hear others are excited about creating something like this as I am. I've gotten a lot of great feedback, too, and it's definitely striking a chord with a lot of people.
In the next day or two I'll send out an email to everyone who signed up, with an overview of next steps. i.e. a rough timeline. In the meantime I'm working hard to get this done as quickly as I can.
Looking forward to getting this launched and getting suggestions and feedback from all of you so we can make this an extremely helpful resource for builders!
Suggestion: Maybe create a section similar to that listed by Vans Aircraft builders called "Gotchas" where plan errors and building mistakes are found which can be alerted to Zenith Builders by adding details to a common list summary by a person stating the part a description of the error found and the solution used.
I will be building my Cruzer using Dynon HDX and want to install Pitch & Roll Dynon Servo's for activation of Autopilot but there is no details in the plans on how to do this so maybe some details (sketch photos etc) can be added by someone who has achieved this safely.for the use of other builders.
