Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Just wanted to let all of you 640 builders know that there has been some activity on our board. Before this latest activity, it had been TWO YEARS since any posts had been made.
Now... I'm new here. I'll admit that right off the bat. But I can't understand why, when you hover over the "Forums" tab up above, the 640 forum can not be found on that list. You have to find it by happenstance under "Model". I've seen a video on YouTube describing the 640 as the "redheaded stepchild", and I now see why, LOL.
At any rate, I just wanted to say, we need you 640 people over there to "provide critical mass", or else it will just die again.
Zenith/Zenair do not market the CH640 much at all, either. It's a great aircraft from what I hear, but it's not "exciting" either. I think with some small updates, and some marketing, it could really compete in the 4-place E-AB market.
Agreed. The closest competition as far as I know are the Sling Tsi and the RV-10, both of which are way out of most people's budget.
