Hi ZU-DSY is a F11 Falconar witch was build by a priest in Zim, if I remember correctly.

Here is some pic's when my instructor, Cyril Manser, took it for a test flight in June 09, I think. Unfortunately all was not well and the test could not be completed. Don't know what the status off DSY is now.

Don't know about the water damage but remember the air speed wasn't working, the wings were just inspected and redone. Will find out the owners name and nr if possible and give him a call.

Hi,

Spoke to the owner of ZU-DSY, Anton Munch, he says the only problem left is the charging circuit that needs to be rewired then she is ready for the air again.
