Joined today when I became aware of the site. Two comments:

1. Today Roger of the Zenith Company proved once more how terrific their service really is. He helped out with a significant problem, and the solution parts will arrive here tomorrow. Five star service.

2. Since 2005 we have maintained a blog about the 601HDS and, in particular, its Rotax 912 UL engine. If you also use a Rotax engine, you may want to look at posts covering various problems and solutions at

Congrats on your flying success. The Original CH601HD / CH601HDS are great aircraft. The Rotax 912 series engine is a perfect match.

That sir, is a whole lot of flying!

welcome aboard.  I too fly a HDS with 912ULS.  I believe we've posted back and forth in the past on the Matronic list.  I'm loving my HDS after 12 years.
