RANS S21 Outbound

Unread post by KZNChris » Sun Mar 03, 2019 5:21 pm

Had a quick look back a couple of pages and did a search but did not find anything
SO
Been looking at a few You Tube vids related to kit planes
Yes I know we have a couple of local options . I did however see a vid about the RANS S21

Here is the review
You Tube Video

Here is the model spec sheet

To my mind one of the nicest looking aircraft in this category -- looks balanced and reminds me a bit of a Cessna 180
It is an all metal aircraft

There may have been mention of it in one of the local aviation magazines ?
Sadly I have not been keeping up with these -- the current government has seen to it that my ever diminishing disposable income is shrinking faster and faster ( no more "luxuries" )

Anyone in SA flying one / building one / flown in one ?
Anyone got anything to say about the aircraft ?

I know of one fast build kit being imported at the moment - due to arrive in a few months.

Be interested to know the purchasers thought processes as to arriving at this particular choice ?
Is it to be powered ROTAX ( which one ) or TITAN ?
Seeing as the Kitfox appears to remain a popular choice -- ever since Trent Palmer became something of a video star ....

Please keep us updated ( you or the owner / builder )
