The new flaperon four-position control lever/handle with the adjustable positions is now available directly from Zenith Aircraft as a kit and is easy to install in both completed STOL CH 701 airplanes as well as those kits still under construction. The optional four-position control lever replaces the standard two-position flaperon handle, adding two new flap positions and making the handle much easier to operate thanks to the lever.
