Just wondering if any parts from the 750 will fit the 801, such as dual control sticks. The strut fairings. Dual brake kit. Bubble windows?

If anyone has first hand knowledge of any of these parts interchanging , I would be interested. Trying to not have to order from Canada if I don't have to. Don't want to mess with Customs and I would think the shipping would be quite a bit more, than from Mexico Mo.

Hi John,

You will want to stick with 801 specific parts for anything flight or structure critical. For items related only to comfort or convenience, you can adapt other parts or design and build your own if you wish. It is EAB after all. The benefit of the 801 parts is just that they are engineered for 801 stresses and dimensions and such. If you were to adapt other parts, you would need to do your own design calculations. EAB allows that if you have the skills and time. If you are not the original builder, an A&P will eventually have to bless you home brew items at the next condition inspection. I have not found getting parts from Zenair Canada to be much more difficult than from Zenith USA. It just adds an extra day or two to the lead time.

Ok , I was just wondering if any of the parts where the same. and would cross over. I guess I'll be ordering from Canada. I 've filled out all the paperwork, so it shouldn't be a big deal. I hope.
