You need to be a member of Zenith Aircraft Builders and Flyers to add comments!
While most of your questions should be addressed by Zenith, I will do my best to answer them.
The quick build kits do meet the 51% rule since you will still need to complete at least some of each component part, and nothing is completely closed up by us. If you are not concerned about a strict time schedule we can save you a significant amount off of the price of the quick build by building it up here. If you are interested in this, give me a call at 573-721-4400 or email me at Bill@LightSportAircrafters.com. We can discuss this in more detail without wading through the forums.
Nearly all of the CH750 is match drilled but keep in mind that there is still some fabrication required, and that there are some internal parts that must be fitted by the builder, the firewall is one example.
I know people who like to skip step drilling whenever they can but I like to step drill everything as it is easier to keep things in alignment.
Yes, there are a couple of nice places to setup a 5th wheel. There is a city park on a nice lake with complete hook ups for $8 per night but they have a 2 week limit but there are other parks with monthly rates of around $300 for complete hook up.
I believe that Zenith offers a complete firewall forward kit for the Jabiru 3300 as they have one in their demo plane.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
