Lance n Tyrone's Zodiac 601XL Build

Unread post by Bushbabie » Fri Jun 12, 2015 12:45 pm

We have taken over the Zodiac 601XL project started by the late Dirk Nordhoff. Purchased by Reinhard Losch and sold to us. Thanks Dirk and Reinhard. We collected and transported over two days from Springs to Cape Town. LT stands for Lance and Tyrone! Dirk has done a great job so far with all the building and wing upgrades. Some pics as it was when we acquired it.
Build will also be posted on Microlighters. http://microlighters.co.za/viewtopic.ph ... d507545628

This was a plan built project. It has a CAA build number and is registered with Zenith in USA.
I only received a set of printed plans with the project. Other DVD and construction manuals were mislaid and original owner has passed away.
Does anyone have a construction manual I can usecopy or the DVD or could you advise me on this
Thanks

No progress as yet. First need to complete the JN-1 wings and get assembled at the hanger. Then can start on the 601. http://microlighters.co.za/viewtopic.ph ... 1abfda5b6c

Hi Guys,
Could anyone please let me know if Bundu is still going or have they changed numbers and email address ?
I've been trying to get hold of them since December 2017, but to no avail, as I'm very keen to look at building a 750 Cruzer.
Any help would be appreciated.
Many thanks.
