I,ve had a Look and cant find any pics from Krugersdorp, so i thought i,d start a "Seen At FAKR (Krugersdorp)" Thread.

So here it Goes...!

Some beauties kept there, A lot of homebuilders based there so you get a lot of the old restorations

Just as a matter of interest you might have just got confused or done a typo but Krugersdorp is FAKR and FAKD is Klerksdorp you might want to change your topic heading :wink:

Maybe we can get zu-coy to start us an FAKD thread, seeing that he's based there? Contrary to popular belief Klerksdorp and Krugersdorp are not next-door neighbours! :lol:

Jason, what's the donk on that cub? looks like a Rotax with an electric CS prop? would be interested to know what the mod involves?

Howzit Pirate....!

It is similar to the Super Cub but with lots of differences! It is a 100 horse Rotax 912uls with a Warp Drive 3 blade prop. We originaly had the wooden Pprop on it but it wasnt performing as well, so changed to the warp! The mod is Easy! There is quite an involved story and i,m busy with an Article on the plane for one of the local Mags, so dont want to give to much away! :wink:

WATCH THIS SPACE FOR MORE DETAILS.....! :wink:
