ZODIAC Drawings and Manuals

Supplied with the complete ZODIAC kit, the drawings are not just assembly instructions (as with most kits), but are detailed 11" x 17" CAD blueprints of the entire airframe assembly, and come with an assembly manual. Supplied with a serial number, you can actually build your own aircraft from "scratch" following the drawings and manuals.  If purchased separately, the cost of the drawings and manuals is deductible off the cost of the full kit.

Builders that have previously purchased the Drawings and Manuals for the ZODIAC CH 601 UL, HD or HDS models can update their drawings to the latest edition. Click here for more info.

"Zenith is one of the few kit makers that still offers a plans-only option; the company supplies complete kits...
  but it will also sell sub-kits, individual parts, or just the plans and builder's manual."
- KITPLANES magazine: "The Scratch-Building Alternative" July 2008
