If you haven't checked out Homebuilthelp.com go to the website and check out their weekly video tips.

Every week they publish a new short video of some part of the build process. You can also sign up to be emailed a link when they upload a new video. I signed up for this a while ago.

Most of their video tips are oriented towards first time builders like myself.

Although my plane is complete I still learn something new from every one of their videos.

Yes, they also have stuff for sale on their website. I have purchased a number of their build videos and they do a great job with those as well.

Just about every one of their free videos is directly relevant to building any one of the Zenith aircraft.

No, I'm not affiliated with the company in any way. It's just that there are few educational resources for homebuilding.

Next to the EAA homebuilders website this is probably the second best website for learning to build. I thought I would pass this on to those who may not be aware of the free weekly videos.

I agree – this is quite an impressive resource… I’ve purchased an embarrassing number of Jon’s CH601/650/701/750 DVDs as well as a few specialized ones -- the one of fuel hose was great !!  (no, they aren’t for sale) and refer beck to them quite regularly… the small “freebees” are quite informative as well… I’m sure most builders are A&P qualified with decades of expertise, but for the few of us weekend-hobbyists, these are wonderfully helpful.


Yep, EAA too…    


No, I have no affiliation whatsoever (either) and Jon has never heard of me…
