Viking Steel Bungee

Has anyone out there with a Zenair 601 replaced their bungees with a steel spring arrangement. We are looking at replacing the rubber bungee with a Viking Steel Bungee. I am aware that Zenair are bringing out their own system which I will fit to my 650 but there is no retrofit option for the 601 HD at present.

Any feedback welcome.

Hi Derick
Contact Jonathan Porter Zenair UK agent at metal seagulls I believe he has details for fitting new dounut system to the HD and may have a second hand steel bungee from a conversion to new system.
See advert in laa magazine for phone number as I don't like to post on a forum.

thanks for the reply, I have spoken to Jonathan and the new donut system will not fit the HD. The steel bungee system I refer to is actually a spring type arrangement which replaces the rubber bungee. It seems to have been used to good effect in the US but I'm not sure whether any have made it over here or are even approved by LAA. I have asked the question but am awaiting a reply. Details below for those who may be interested.
