Just finished rudder. Starting on rest of tail kit. Looking forward to building process and many tips and assistance from experienced builders on this site. Don't be fooled by picture. I am now retired from USAFR and working as electrical engineer. Finally have time to get project underway.

I am building by components. I have only ordered the tail kit. Next will be the fuselage kit. I talked to Caleb at Zenith and he says the upgrade is now part of the wing kit and the plans are being updated. I asked when the plans would be completely updated and he said by the end of this year. This is alright with me since I will not be building wings until next year anyway. I also have the HomebuiltHELP construction videos which are a great help in seeing how everything goes together and what things should look like as I am progressing. Also has some helpful tips which saves me time. So far I am enjoying the build. Plus since the weather is so hot here in Texas, I do not feel the need to get my hot air balloon out and go flying every weekend.

I'm glad to see a new start on a 650. These seem to be rare events. Are you kit or plans building, and if kit, do you have the new one with the upgrade installed?
