Donald: Thanks for the contact. I have completed a Zenith 750 Cruzer with a Jabiru 3300 and Dynon Skyview avionics. I had my DAR inspection in July and am now in phase 1 flight testing. One of my friends, James Nichols(also on the Zenith Builders List) has just completed a 750 STOL with the Jabiru 3300. Please let me know if you have questions or if I can assist. My plane is in Anacortes, WA. Tom
Hey, just remembered that you are in Madison WI. Missed an opportunity: I was in Madison two Fridays ago. At the airport for a couple of hours. Flying a Tecnam Astore (not my Ch750). Still, it would have been nice to talk.
My fault, to not "connect the dots" while I was there.
Well I have over 10 hrs flying now. All is going well. My right door some how opened at 1200 ft and 100 mph. That was a shocker. It ruined the door but we got down safely. I forgot to leave my phone number last time, 714-3281101. How is you build going?
Yes I have been building the Cruzer for over a year now. It has been a lot of fun. I made a few changes but mostly it is the plans. I went with the Viking engine,you can't beet a Honda. You can call me if you want. So far I am very happy with the Zenith product.
Custom instrument panels are now available directly from Zenith Aircraft Company exclusively for Zenith builders and owners. Pre-cut panel, power distribution panel, Approach Fast Stack harnesses, Dynon and Garmin avionics, and more.
