Designed for the builder that wants to make best use of their time in completing the popular quick-build version of the 601XL aircraft kit. (A great aid to builders of the standard kit too!)
The 601XL quick-build aircraft was designed to provide maximum pre-assembly of kit parts to save the builder time. This video adds to that goal by showing construction procedures for components necessary to complete the aircraft. The amount of time saved by "learning through watching" is substantial and will pay for the price of the video many times over.
This presentation does not cover the complete assembly of the aircraft, but does provide an almost step-by-step demonstration for the following components:
- Nose wheel fabrication and installation.
- Main landing gear installation.
- Wheels, tires and axles assembly.
- Wing locker fabrication (option for the 601) .
- Installation of the landing light into wing.
- Attachment of rudder onto fuselage.
In addition, other topics are discussed - including strobe wiring inside the wing, fuel sender installation, cabin step installation, flap motor preparation and more.
Save MONEY - fewer errors in assembly means less parts are ruined. Everyone makes mistakes when building, drilling in the wrong places, parts cut or trimmed in the wrong way, performing tasks that are out of sequence and having to take things apart and do them over, etc. This video will save more than its price by preventing the accidental destruction of expensive kit components by allowing you to watch the building before attempting it yourself.
Build a BETTER LOOKING plane! Many of the cosmetic deficiencies in our projects are the result of building errors. It is not hard to imagine that obtaining a near perfect job is close to impossible when we attempt a procedure for the very first time. By watching someone else make the bend, drill the hole, cut the part - we have a much better chance of doing it right. The result is a better looking, safer aircraft.
Make your building experience more ENJOYABLE - Your investment in time is actually more important than the dollar value for the kit. Building a plane takes a long time and much of this time can be daunting - always wondering if it is being done right. Having to buy new components or starting over on an assembly that was performed in error is not a pleasant experience. By eliminating the guesswork, your time is more enjoyable as you eliminate many unknowns by watching someone else who has done it before.
Same Day Shipping
Orders placed before 2 PM Mountain Standard Time (MST) Monday-Friday (except holidays) are shipped out the same day. FedEx Overnight, 2nd Day, and Express Saver requests must be placed by 1 PM Mountain Standard Time (MST) for same day shipping.
Shipping Within the USA
- Standard shipping options for all U.S. addresses are your choice of FedEx Ground, FedEx Express, and U.S. Postal Priority Mail.
- Free Shipping in Continental US on retail orders over $95 is by standard mail (USPS) for residences and FedEx Ground for commercial addresses. Free shipping does not apply to wholesale orders.
US Shipping Methods
- FedEx Ground is a fully traceable and fully insured service with times and costs about the same as Priority Mail. We recommend FedEx Ground for all shipments so your package will arrive on a timelier basis and in good condition.
- FedEx Overnight, 2nd Day and Express Saver requests must be placed by 1 PM Mountain Standard Time for same day shipping. As with all FedEx services, it is fully traceable, insured, and will arrive on a timely basis in the best packaging available.
FedEx Service Explanations
- Standard Overnight delivers the next business day (Mon-Fri, except holidays and weekends) at the time of day when your FedEx driver normally serves your shipping address.
- 2nd Day Service is also measured in business days. For example, an order placed on Thursday will arrive on Monday, and an order placed on Friday will arrive on Tuesday.
- Exceptions and delays: FedEx provides reliable on time service (far better than the post office). However, as all transportation is subject to delay due to weather or other factors, neither FedEx nor ATB can absolutely guarantee on time delivery of any package.
- Priority Mail is just a little bit more predictable than standard mail. Typical shipping times are 3-4 days to the west coast or midwest, and 5-6 days to the east coast. However, if it does not arrive on time there is nothing we can do about it.
- Other shipping methods are available upon request. Please note your request on the comments section of the checkout form or give us a call.
- Your order may be shipped on your own FedEx account. Please note your request on the comments section of the checkout form or give us a call.
- APO and FPO military addresses are considered US addresses regardless of the country in which you serve. Please enter United States as your country and your APO/FPO zip code in that box.
- Standard International shipping options and costs are displayed on the checkout page once you have entered your order. Please note that many countries charge various taxes and duties when you receive your order. These taxes are NOT determined or collected by us and so are NOT included with your shipping total at time of checkout.
