About 3-4 months ago, I bought an Edition 1 partially built kit...on the way home, I stopped at the Zenith factory in Mexico to have them look at it and let me know what I had, and needed. I ended up buying the parts and upgrading the plans to Edition 3. When I started, I had to unbuild (probably not a word) a lot of the fuselage structure to make the structural changes to the door posts, and rear carry through.
I kind of watch this forum to see what good information I can get, but seldom make any replies. There are so many experts, that I kinda just keep to myself.
Hi Bob. It sounds like we're thinking about the same plane. The UL 350 sounds like a great engine for the 750 on floats. Bob McDonald a 750 pilot near me in Ontario swears by the rotax engines. Sorry i can't help you yet, as I'm just starting my kit. But i look forward to hearing more about yours.
