I have the  wing fold on my 750 but can't use it due  to the wing leading edge is only inches from ground when folded.  I cannot use it because the plane will not go up any elevation at all without the wings touching the ground. Notice the picture from Zenith factory on this is on flat pavement and not movement up or down.  I finally gave up on using it even though it is installed on my  plane.  also, there is no way to hold the wings up off the ground.
