I still have it although it isn't currently flyable. The landing gear broke again and had a prop strike, damaged the nosewheel and firewall so I rebuilt the engine and doubt I will ever fly the plane again.  I may have to just stop everything for awhile since my daughter should start college this fall. Going to need money for that but I hope to be working on a low cost project, slowly, in the meantime.

Glad to hear you are doing well in Florida. Good luck with the project and fly safe.

Jim, How is it going in Florida? How is the 701 kit coming? I have been trying to save up for a 750 kit for awhile.

I plan on going to Sebring and SunNFun this year. It's always great to meet other builders and Zenith Owners, attending these events. Having a factory built plane at being based at CYEE the home of the Canadian Factory. I have gotten to no the Heintz boys over the years and look forward to seeing them at the various shows that they do. Chris has designed a Great Series of Planes for the average builder to build and complete with basic skills, to what ever level they wish.
