    Guys/gals; Finishing up my CH750 Stol empennage, preparing workshop for wing components next, but should I be in the market for good cores for my eventual O-320 build all the while?

    My Safety Concerns About Bubble Canopies

    Hi everybody, My boys and I are finally at a place where we can start a build, and this topic has been on my mind. We've been looking at Zenith 650s for a long time, and also like the Sling 2, Sonex and the RV-12. Problem is, they're ALL bubble canopy planes, and I just can't get comfortable...

    CH 650

    I think I just fell in love! Anybody have experience with the Zodiac 650, or perhaps its predecessor, the 601 XL? P.S. The tail number is 601, but the Zenith pic says it's a 650.
