Good Morning. Here are some more specs:

The Zenith 3.7 uses the HQW 3/8.5 at the root transiting throughout the span.
The 3.7 does not have the plug in winglets or small tips anymore, the new panel is molded with the tip integrated in the mold. This saves weight and time.
The ailerons are full span on the tips with a short traileron that just stops short of the end of the panel.
The aileron is now bottom hinged.
The fuse is new, the fin is a bit bigger and the rudder cord is smaller. Ballast tube.
The stab has a bit more span and no "V" cut out for the rudder clearance, it ends before the rudder hinge.
Overall the ship has kept the same weight (maybe even lost a bit) and increased span.
The 3.7 Tips will fit on the Zenith but it's recommended to use them on the X-tail version.
A New Zenith 3.7-V-tail is in work. Bigger stabs, canopy fuse, Lighter weight still!
As normal I order the Carbon version, for those really weight watching he can make a glass version or Carbon "D" for early morning fly off conditions but the carbon version is good all day!

I think I have the only ones in existence at the moment, these are going to customers that pre ordered. I will get a new shipment later this year. I am sure flight reports will follow.

Thanks for looking!
