Hi Robert,
My name is Rich Astley and I'm currently studying for my PPL here in Chico.  I'm also looking at the 601 or 650 as my first airplane purchase.  I understand you have a 601 or 650.

If you have time, would it be possible to see your aircraft?  I'm particularly interested in seeing the space in the cabin.  My schedule is pretty flexible.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

I do not remember the exact number, but it was around 3 degrees. Zenith said to only adjust in increments of 1 degree. I made my first 1 degree adjustment by lowering the front HT support. I did not notice much of a difference. I could not go any lower on the front side so I then raised the rear end of the HT to make about a 2 degree change. That pretty much did it for me.

Good luck!
