Randy, I'm ready!  That would be awesome (and make for some great videos)!  I just need the boss' permission!

Enough with the practice already; you guys need to come out here to western Colorado/eastern Utah and I'll take you into backcountry strips that demonstrate what a STOL CH701 was really designed to do!

Bob: You're right - we're always amazed at the great STOL capability of the original CH 601 wing (combined with a good lightweight engine).

Harvested bean fields are a nice safe "off field" area to play with your Zenith STOL....and I have done this with the CH601HD. The CH601HD thinks its a STOL Zenith. ;>)
