Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Viking Aircraft Engines has once again proven itself to be a committed partner with AV84all. Viking recently donated an upgrade steel bungee for the nose wheel of the Zenith 750.
This upgrade to the standard rubber bungee will not wear out, and will make rudder operation smoother. This is crucial in an aircraft that will have a handle to control rudder deflection.
The Viking, steel bungee upgrade, “works in reverse of the original rubber bungee, yet the suspension load is transferred to the original cross tube. The Preloading of the spring is handled internal to the spring, using an adjustable rod, providing no force to the airframe while in flight. The ramp effect of the original plastic material has been milled away and the steering arms now ride on a flat surface.”
