"B" model designation for Zodiac CH601XL and CH650

With the advent of the upgrade package for the Zodiac CH 601 XL, owners
have asked for a way of easily identifying and marking an upgraded
aircraft, and a consensus quickly formed that a "B" model designation
was the preferred way of identifying an upgraded aircraft (applying to
upgraded Zodiac CH 601 XL and CH 650 aircraft models).

We've prepared quality cut-out decals for the aircraft: We encourage all affected builders who have completed the upgrade to
display the "B" model designation on their aircraft to display that this
is an Upgraded aircraft.

A decal sheet is now available from Zenith Aircraft Company: to order your free decal sheet (as shown
below), go to http://decal.kit.aero and complete
the online request form.
Decals are only available to builders/owners who have completed installation of the Upgrade Package.
Decal sheet (8.5"x11"), available in choice of black or white lettering:

We invite all builders and owners who have completed the upgrade to send us a photo of the upgraded aircraft so that we can start a new online
photo gallery of upgraded Zodiacs!

So after all the brou-ha ha and carry-ons, is the issue laid to rest after the modifications have been completed, or is more testing required? I would sure like to finish and move on......

I'm a big guy, so I was going to call mine a 601XXL, but I guess the B is okay.

Are you referring to the silver airplane or the girl leaning on it, Steve?

Nice decal sheet, Sebasitien! It will be a year or two before my build is complete, but I will be incorportating the upgrade as I build (just got the upgrade kit a few weeks ago, thanks). I hope you are still providing the decal kit at the time my birdie is flying..... Thanks, also, for going to all the trouble and effort at the factory to get through this. Not every kit maker would have the strength or the fortitute to do all you did, to take this problem through to the other side. I appreciate it.
