Hello, has anyone here installed a tail skid on a 701? I'm looking to do one on my project and looking for design ideas. Thank You

Since you're looking for design ideas, I suspect you want to fabricate something that looks much better, but the "Cessna Tail Skid" that ACS sells for $21.50 works great and just bolts under the tail tie-down ring.

Hi John, thanks for your reply. Is this the setup you used on your plane? If so, can you send me a photo please. Thanks

Yes, I installed one on my 750. I'm away from home this weekend,  but can post a photo next week.

Ok John. 

Thank You.

I thought I had a picture, but can't find it!  Here's one published by Blaine Schwartz:

Thank for your replay John. My tie down hook is riveted in place. Its a different design on a 701 which is what I have. 

Here is one designed for zenith 750 - 801 that might also work for 701.
