Hi Jacques,

Ek neem aan jy gaan dit moet skuif om die CG reg te kry?

Lyk baie goed sovêr, net soos INJ gaan dit n pragstuk wees!

Groete

Hi Jaco,

dankie vir die kompliment. Ja, die gear skuif vorentoe. Ek gaan die tri gear attachments op die vliegtuig hou vir toekomstige gebruik...

Below is a photo of the new gear attachments installed today. Will fit the new main gear tomorrow.

Hi,

Progress is looking good and finally she has been registered. She will be ZU-IIJ (close to my current Raven ZU-INJ.. :) )
