Wondering if anyone else thinks Zenith should design an all new STOL that is a tail dragger???  Love the performance but I wish they had a tail dragger version.  Don't much like the looks of the conversions I've seen.....Just a thought..

Many advantages when landing off airport.  Compare the number of tricycle gear VS tail wheel planes in Alaska.  Or how many tricycle gear were in the STOL demonstration at OSH.....

Other than being lighter and having less drag I see more disadvantages to a taildragger than advantages.
