Doug Dugger's Updated 601 Takes its First Flight

After many weeks of work, Doug Dugger took his 601 XL on its first flight following its update. I captured the event with the little camera we had on hand at the time. I believe Doug’s is the first upgraded 601 to fly on the west coast. Doug owns and operates Quality Sport Planes in Cloverdale California the west-coast Zenith distributor. He offers upgrade assistance for those who need it.
