Looks great, and looked very stable and flyable.  Do you folks have an empty weight yet?

You guys have "DONE GOOD"

Yet another excellent engine to hang on a Zenith Aircraft. I pity the fool that buys a kit and is limited to only one engine ;-) If you want to build an Experimental, ZAC is the place to go.

Great looking bird, love those big round cowl openings.  Like the idea of 130 HP but at $25k this would be a dollar-foolish completion to a penny-wise scratch build.
