This video shows a few adventures I have had with my Zenith Zodiac XL. The plane was built in the first half of 2007 in Cloverdale, CA with the help of my brothers and many others.

Nice inspirational video. I just got back from Corvair College 17 where I built my engine, now all I need to do is wrap an airplane around the engine. The pictures you took of the places I want to fly has provided me just what I needed to get er done.

Thank you all for the kind remarks.

The video was fun to make and I still get a kick out of watching the high-def version on my computer with the sound cranked up.

The music was “borrowed” from another video called Animusic. The website for the company is here. You can rent the DVD from Netflix.

Absolutely top notch production. Almost as fun as building and flying in the aircraft!
I know this took a lot of work to make. Worth it.
