Thanks for the compliment. At Kitplanes we work to improve our products constantly. The new cowls and fairings make the aircraft more efficient. The fuel flow reduced from 17l/hr to 13l/hr for the same power setting.

Compliment where its deserved.

Quick Question, Are you agents for Woodcomp props?

What would a cs prop set you back, looking at replacing my Powerfin prop on the Cubby which is no longer manufactured or supported.
