The Mono-Z is a single-place scaled-down version of the original Zenith. It offers maximum operating economy with VW power at a 3-gph cruise. Detachable wings leave an 8-footwide section for easy road towing; only 20 minutes are required to install both wings. It is stressed for 9Gs, and it becomes a powerful aerobatic performer with a 100-hp engine. Powerplant possibilities range from the VW 1,600cc to 100-hp Continental.
