Aaron Gustafso in his Zodiac CH 601 HD Aaron Gustafson, Iron Mountain, Michigan: 
"After years of scratch building, my 601 finally flew on June 9th, 2007. It is equipped with a Continental 0-200 engine, spring gear and gull wing doors. It flies great, everything I had hoped for and more. I tell people 'I made every piece', from engine installation, sewed the upholstery, all welding including wing tanks and the paint. I learned very much by doing it myself. It was a great project. It's a great plane and what will I ever do with my time come winter!?? "

Jim Taylor's Zodiac XL, powered by the Jabiru 3300 Jim Taylor's Zodiac XL, powered by the Jabiru 3300 (Junction City, Kansas):

"I made the test flights myself and was very happy with the performance and flight characteristics of the XL, it being very stable and just a whole lot of fun to fly. I also installed all the options offered: The dual sticks and dual rudder brake peddles, the lighting kit, wing baggage lockers and the extra fuel tanks. I was very pleased with all of the additions I added and if building another would do it the same.
"I installed a Jabiru 3300 engine which runs very smooth and seems well matched and powered for the 601 XL. I have no problem in cruising at 130 MPH when turning 2800 RPM. The rate of climb is as you specify, and boy, how well it will climb. The panel has a complete set of regular instruments as well as a Dynon EFS and a Blue Mountain Sport EFIS."
