I'm just getting finished with my hangar home and am starting on my partially built kit that I purchased.

I have a Viking 110hp engine for it. I am hoping to find someone locally to trade out work with. I've had ultralights before, but this will be my first plane. It is the Zenith 701.

Hey Mike, where are you located - maybe we have some local builders around? -Alissa

Hi Alissa, I have watched many of your videos and am excited to get this thing going. I live in sw mo east of Carthage at 27MO  I have built a hangar home on the airpark.



Hi Mike, I’ve got a 750 I recently bought hangared at Lamar. Several light sport planes here as well. Some morning when these guys go on a breakfast run to Kingsley’s Maybe we can invite you to join us.

That would be great. It would be nice to meet another zenith owner.

Hi Michael, I am currently putting a Viking 110 in my 701, working on wiring currently, selling my Rotax 670 and ivoprop. Hope to see yours someday, might fly over when mine is installed.


That sounds great Carl, be great to have a visitor at 27MO. I just got mine registered and middle of painting when weather permits. Then fuel, brakes, avionics and finishing details. My plan is to finish it this year.


Here is a picture of the viking 110 on my Zenith 701. I ordered the cowling from Viking but still waiting.


Here are some pics of my progress, currently working on my battery/header tank tray, it will go directly behind the belly hatch.20220321_212505.jpg


I have a 750 cowl i am planning on using, some trimming required....



Did you order it new, or is this a used engine?

I got it used  with 158 hours, he wanted a bigger engine.
