Nov 19, 2009 - Zenith Aircraft will be releasing a wing modifcation upgrade kit for the CH601XL and CH650 aircraft.  Work on my plane has been suspended until receiving the final kit.  This is one page of the "draft" plans for the upgrade.
Nov 19, 2009 - This shows some of the parts that will shipped as part of the upgrade kit.
Nov 19, 2009 - Zenith is first installing the upgrade on its demo aircraft, (which has been flying since 2001 and with over a 1,000 hours on it) and documenting the steps.  The upgrade calls for removal of wings for planes already built.  Luckily, I can just incorporate the upgrade into my project as I build.
Nov 19, 2009 - Here they are starting to upgrade the center section.  They are also making some changes to the plans as they proceed.  Builders have been cautioned not to do anything until the "final" drawings have been released.  I probably will not be able to get back to my project until sometime in December.
