Glide ratio

Today I was out doing my 40hr phase flying and decided to do some idle power glide tests. Zenith recommends 60kts best glide speed. I tried 50kts, 55kts, 60kts and 65kts. The best ratio was at 60kts with a 9.3:1 ratio. This is line with most production planes such as Cessna 182 and Piper Cherokee.Regards  BillSee More

William, 

I have the answer to the question of the day. I have stuffed my plane into a uhaul and it is now at Buzzair Flight Academy in TN. They are all great folks, and have helped me enormously. My 750 is undergoing flight testing now, but I had to return home. They are flying off as many hours as possible between training sessions. I had to travel further than you will, and I towed a car. I'll see if I can send you a picture of the truck.

I believe you can.  I think I have seen a video with Roger Dubbert showing this feature.  Check the Zenith site.
