Flutter testing

Posted on March 2, 2012 at 12:05pm 2 Comments

Back in March 2010 we offered $750 to Zenith Aircraft Company toward their flutter testing expenses. The recent Zenair News includes information regarding the latest flutter testing on the XLB, therefore we are sending our check today.  We feel we are indebted to Zenith for their continued expensive testing.   The additional testing is reassuring to us, and we commend Zenith for their continuing professionalism.  Wes & Lurlene Bressler, N601WL, Jabiru 3300, 50 hours total time.   

We want to buy a used 601 XL canopy

Does anyone out there have a used canopy for a 601XL in good condition that they would like to sell?

Secondary canopy latch for a 601

Posted on March 11, 2011 at 5:52pm 6 Comments

First we'd like to thank all who responded to our last request for help on our flap position sensor.  It really helped and our sensor turned out great.  Now we'd appreciate suggestions for a secondary canopy latch.  We tried one that didn't work out too well.  Pictures are especially appreciated! 

Thanks, Wes & Lurlene Bressler; N601WL; 601XLB


Flap position sensor

Posted on February 27, 2011 at 10:06pm 7 Comments

We are trying to install the Ray Allen position sensor for the flap.  We have the linear motor and the Ray Allen sensor which moves 1.2 inch.  Has anyone out there installed this combination, and could you share a description and pictures?  We know the flap arm travels 52mm but the sensor only travels 30mm.

We have the wiring ok to the panel indicator.

thanks, Wes & Lurlene Bressler
