ZODIAC XL Jack Russell's ZODIAC XL (Clovis, Calif.):

"After three years of building it is time to say thanks to a great company for building a airplane that was the right choice for my first building endeavor. My project flew in May of this year and it flew straight and fast. I have been seeing 145 mph at full power with a Jabiru 3300.
I have never built a plane before and I don't think that all companies are as supportive as yours: You have been there for every little problem that I have encountered. Nick has answered all my questions and kept me on the path to success. I am pretty proud of my little red bird and want to thank you for a design that was easy to build and fun to fly. I am already thinking about the next project and the Zenith 701 is on the list. Thanks again for everything."
