Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Finally finished the long projest on Friday June 28th 2010! Put the prop on and wired it for the last time before flight testing, Not able to do any testing as the Airshow started on Friday also but we will be on display all weekend. Granted I am not as fast as the US Air Force Thunderbirds or the Canadian Snowbirds, I can't flop around the sky like Skip Stewart or make the graceful moves of the Big Red Stearman, But, I can get off the ground a lot shorter and get into and out of places they can only dream about so all evens out Low and slow is my motto! I was a great weekend and there were a lot of folks that came to view my airplane and ask a lot of questions so it was a real win,win situation for Zenith and Jabiru. We will be doin ground andslow speed taxi for the next two weeks while I get more acquainted with the full operation of both the Anywhere Map ATC GPS and the Dynon D-10A before I take to the air, I expect the first flight to be perhaps sometime the second week. Looking forward to that as it has been a long time comming. I hope you enjoy the photos, will send more later.
I also had the opportunnty to make one young man's dreams come true, I don't remember the last time I saw a 4 Year old kid get so excited about airplanes as this young man, he was smiling from ear to ear all day an jumping up and down clapping his hands during the aerobatics of Skip Stewart, What a joy to watch!
