Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
I have spent the last week at Quality Sport Planes in Cloverdale CA working on my 750. It has been a great week with Doug giving me just the right amount of advice. I will be here for another month working on the project before trailering it north to Fairbanks Alaska to put the engine on. I am very happy working on the project here in Cloverdale.

I have 6 yrs.( 300 hrs.) on my original nose bungee. Is it time to replace? I have no sag or signs of deterioration. How often are other 601 xl owners doing a replacement?
AMD 601 XLB
On a side note!
Are aircraft to be christned when named?
If so, what is the tradition and cerimonial procedures?

About a month ago I was flying high with the first wing almost done and now I've not touched it for 3 weeks and feeling quite depressed about the whole endeavour. So many forum posts with people who clearly know what they are doing struggling with things - how to mate the fuse parts together, how to route a fuel line..... what chance do I have as a complete beginner and no one around me who knows more than I do?
I'm sure most everyone goes through the same, hopefully I can get…Continue

working on parts for horisontal stab. Just have to make some type of brake with 6.4 mm radius to bend parts. What are most of u bending these parts with. I see when I get to firewall stiffeners I have to make a bend almost 900 mm long. Not sure if I can bend these over a peice of wood or not. What is the best way to do this without making another brake?
Our heartfelt thanks go to Randy and Tim for kindly sending their 'left-over' cleco's, wiring, instruments, clamps, breakers and other goodies to us in Ghana. Randy and Tim both built Zenith aircraft, and at the end had some parts that had some good deeds left in…Continue
I am finishing the wings and I am somehow reluctant to start riveting... so for all the more advanced builders out there... a few questions:
1- I have seen many options for vented gas tanks caps... even one that includes a valve with a floating ball to allow air flow into tanks and stop vapors getting out... also some who welded tubbing... suggestions? options from spruce? I have the factory built tanks.
2- Is it possible to build inspection opening in the wings? anyone has…Continue
I think the starting problem has been solved! I got the ECU back fron Jan with the latest updat installed. Have 4 or 5 starts with the temp in the 25-35 deg. range.It seems to fire up after a few revs, but gining how cold it was, thats not bad. WAY LOT better than before.
Now if we could just get some warm weather.
Hi. Does anyone have a 4130 list for the ch 750 that they would like to share?
