ZODIAC CH 601 Series Kit Aircraft:
Summary of Design Features

  ZODIAC XL CH 601 HD CH 601 UL CH 601 HDS
Design Overview: The newest Zodiac model, developed for increased speed, power and gross weight, yet maintaining a low stall (landing) speed.  Optimized for the proposed Sport Pilot category. The original Zodiac model delivers good performance with low power. Features a high-lift constant-chord wing design with no flaps. Designed specifically for ‘Advanced Ultralight’ categories around the world that limit the gross weight of the aircraft. The design is nearly identical to the HD model. Based on the HD model, the 'Super Zodiac' features tapered and shorter 'speed wings.'
Recommended Power: 100 - 125 HP 65 - 100 HP 50 - 100 HP 80 - 100 HP
