To all Zenith Builders.  I am just curious if the zenith airplanes come with plumbing for pitot and static lines?  Also, if not, what are most people using when they build?

Are most of you putting in alternate static also?

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Steven, yes, the Zenith kits do come with a pitot static tube and some line for plumbing, but I chose to go with the following products from SafeAir1:

http://safeair1.com/averytools/pitotmast.php

and from ACS I installed on the above pitot mast the below

DYNON AOA PITOT UNHEAT L TUBE W/O BRACKET 10-01157

On my CH650 I installed the static ports one on each side of the fuselage just aft of the rear wing spar below the top longeron.

Regards,

Dave

Great product

I have the dynon pitot but it's pitot and aoa only. I bought two static ports from spruce an put them under the baggage (650) behind the rear wing attach uprights, one each side. I ran 1/4" nylon tube up to a t-junction so any water would drain out. From that "t" is a single 1/4" nylon tube to the back of the dynon.

Oh and the tube came with kit. Given the slightly mod'd set up I don't know if all nylon will be enough to run from wings and static setup.

what was the part numbers from spruce as there appear to be a few different static ports available?

Thanks for the responses.  That answer my questions.  We are working on some ideas here to make pitot and static plumbing easier.  In addition, we are developing a unique alternate static system.  I was just curious if builders were using aftermarket mods on this or going with a stock system.  I'll post more info when it's available.

Happy building

Steve
