Love the forums! I started with the rudder and now I am waiting for the rest of the tail section. Next I am ordering the whole kit- ZENITH 701, can't wait for the engine install.

Welcome aboard.  Always glad to see another builder take the plunge.

Thank you Gary.

Curious about your thinking on model choice.   Why the 701 and not the 750?

My reason for the 701 build is affordability and simplicity and agreeable wife. As for the limited useful load I can make that work, my-self 170 lbs. Thank you for your response and question, so great to here from you!

An excellent choice, sir! The 701 is awesome ;>)

It seems like the best choice for me, thanks Shawn.

Welcome! The forum members have been great helping me with those issues that happen on a Friday night, after Zenith has closed for the weekend. They're also great about bouncing ideas around for how to approach different aspects of the kit.

Thank you Carl, a valuable source of info for sure!

Glad you are taking the plunge! It will be a great adventure, and tremendous learning experience.

Thank you for your response, great to here from you.
