Welcome to the
This is a new
and exciting online community for Zenith builders and
flyers. The goal is to have a very organized
resource all of us can use.
We have a very powerful vBulletins forums
which allows us to organize information in different
categories. In other words, you can find the
information you need!
I started building my Cruzer, I searched all over
the internet for pictures and builder's websites

stress-free, easy-to-use resource for all of us.

DIY Wing Leading Edge Recognition Light I
bought a very bright LED flashing recognition light
on Amazon and I am mounting it in the leading edge

designed and made my own mount, and how I mounted it
in the wing. Note that Part 1 and Part 2 are in this
thread. Part 3 is coming soon.
attempt to learn video editing, I am making some
videos about the building process of my Cruzer. Here

found some nice baggage compartment tie downs in the
camping section of Bass Pro Shops. They are small

When you send me a link to your
build log, would you please include your state or
location on Earth? It's just a quick way to see
where builders are located. If you notice on my
listing on the Builder's

others nearby know I'm in Michigan.
