Is this not a Piper DLX conversion and not actually a Meridian ? (doesn't have the crank in the leading edge where it joins the fuselage).

self edit - of course, in which case it would be a converted Malibu !! I geddit

Yup, it's a Jetprop DLX. The large air intake under the engine is the usual giveaway.

The other give away is that it says Jetprop on the fuz behind the exhaust :)

Excellent day out to the Vaal! Thanks Rob! Thanks to Andre for the invite and organizing.
Wind was not favorable but the ALOIII had no problems dealing with it.
Nice day out gents!

Thats a well built helicopter. A birdie told me he may sell it (if his arm is twisted enough) as he is looking at a much bigger project :idea:
