LOOKING FOR INFO, PICTURES, AILERONS, AILERON DIMENSIONS ,wing envelope, PARTS, ENGINES? I am restoring one of the originals. C-IEXB. 2seat 2engine trainer. The aileron profile looks similar to the CH 701 of which l have built two, so that seems simple.ha.
I have plans for 701, so could come up with info on 701 airlerons ,if necessary ! Also have extra rudder if needed ! Tom
I have built 701's ,what I tried to say was I could build them if the profile is the same.
I also placed an ad in _UPAC_ asking for help. Got a Yahoo Zipper site [little used] but lots of information.
ULTRALIGHT PILOTS ASSOCIATION in Canada.
Am still looking for another real example of the ZENAIR ZIPPER with ailerons.
Thank You. for the help:
We don't have much info at all on the Zipper ultralight anymore since it was never offered with plans or drawings (but as an assembled airframe). Here are a few old pics from the archives:
Chris Heintz piloting an original Zipper ultralight powered by a JPX engine
Zipper on amphibious floats, this one powered by what looks like a Rotax engine. Notice the Princeton sailwing and recognizable tail sections
Sebastien I am recieving more info as time goes on,have not found another example yet.
Will pass on pictures and hard copies .
I have built 2 - CH701's from plans C-IFQT C-IFLX
Had a Ultralight school at YKF. Helped finish about 10 --- 701's , rigged,test flew and checked their
owners out. Loved every minute.
I purchased a used Zipper about 20 years ago. It was a single seat with the JPX engine. I was able to get the engine running, but I didn't trust it enough to try flying it. I sold it and bought a Quicksilver GT400. Guy bought it and put it in his barn. It might still be there. Here is the only picture that I have of my Zipper with my wife sitting in the seat and my son standing beside it:
My Reply may have gotten lost.I think you are in Ohio, The barn location could be helpful.
