Hope you are doing alright on the coast. ?? The flooding is not too bad around here, though my hanger always floods some during a heavy rain.

Good luck and fly safe,

Wow, your right there on the coast below Houston.

Finishing up the flight controls, doors, and all the trimmings. About to hang my wings I think.

How is your build coming along?

Installing it right now. Stopped working on the plane until some sort of fix was issued....
The new parts definitely add to the strength of the wing and center spar, I am pleased with what Zenith has done.
I would guess I stopped at about halfway, fuse all together, one wing closed, one open. I figure I have about 2 years to go at my pace.
Planning on the jabiru. There are two 601's flying at Boerne stage, both have the 3300.
Very smooth I am told.

I have not thought very much about engines that is way down the line for me. I have been following the ul260i Fly with Gus but that is the only engine so far.
