Question
Zenith 3.7 info

I just acquired a Zenith 3.7 partially completed. There was no literature included. Would any one here have, or know where to get set up information?

Hi,
Yes, F3X.com
Look left for "How To"
Then to "Build a Zenith"
After, backtrack to "How To" then to "Set up Sheet"
Go to "Zenith"

Enjoy,

Jared

Perfect! Thanks.

I assume the 3.7 set up and cg would be the same as the regular zenith?

CG at 110mm back is a good starting point.

Joe Nave is in control of the ship now, not sure but he is around here. Great ship, too bad that it was not as accepted as it should have. Made this cowboy look pretty good. Too bad that they did not make a spread tow version that could have been sub-70 oz., that would have been fun.

The Zenith is a wonderful plane. I think Joe got the same treatment from the manufacturer that Tom did. Not sure exactly what the issues are but it's sad that this plane can be difficult to get.

Major...What radio do you have? If Airtronics I can send you Brendan's (my son) programming. I can also see where is CG is currently.

Thanks Mark.

I'm currently using the Aurora 9. But dissatisfaction is high. I used to be an Airtronics man, but switched for some reason that I have forgotten. If a windfall comes my way, I may switch back to Airtronics. If I do, I'll drop you a line.

I'm flying the a9 for f3b with 8 flight modes. I find it pretty good and I used to fly a multiplex p4000, which is a lot more powerful than any airtronics transmitter.

What's the problem?

I think my problem is: I'm an old fart and programming it seems counter intuitive. I need to to figure out the flight mode capabilities.

I like the A9 too. That Zenith is one of the best thermal ships Ive flown. Climbs thru much out there and has great legs!
