Question to you 650 guys on Vne

Started this discussion. Last reply by George Burns Aug 3. 12 Replies

I was just perusing the performance specs on the Zenith site, and noticed with a Jabiru 3300, the  "75% Cruise @8000 ft (TAS)" is listed as 160mph. The next line says Vne is 160mph. Imma assume that…Continue

I saw in a discussion from, I think 2011?, someone was talking about upholstery and said something to the effect of "you can see what I'm talking about on my builder page". I clicked on his name, but…Continue

No more CH640?

From the Zenair website... http://www.zenair640.info/For economic reasons, kit production for the CH 640 aircraft was discontinued in early 2020. Zenair will continue to provide necessary parts and sub-kits to existing builders to complete their projects and for owners to maintain & repair existing aircraft.Interestingly when I click on the hyperlink, the page it takes me to is like a press release,…See More

Turbo questions

I would just like to hear any and all opinions about going with a turbo system in order to get to a HP requirement I need for my chosen Zenith version (CH 640). Now, before you throw on your negative nancy glasses, realize that the Sling 4, a similarly sized EXP, is powered by a Rotax 914 UL/F @ 115hp. People said it was underpowered. So they came out with the Sling TSi, which is now powered by the Rotax 915 TSi @ 141hp. People are raving about the power now.

Question about navigating this site (builder pages)

I saw in a discussion from, I think 2011?, someone was talking about upholstery and said something to the effect of "you can see what I'm talking about on my builder page". I clicked on his name, but that just showed me his discussions and posts. How do you find people's builder pages? In particular, I'm looking for anyone who has recorded/videoed/photo-logged the building of their CH640. See More

The 640 forum has seen a flurry of recent activity

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…See More
