Jip - Superior IO-360. Dis n baie algemene enjin vir die RV7 en RV8.
Ons het al 10 jaar terug een in ZU-JAD ingebou. Baie goeie enjins en jy kan Mogas ook gebruik.

I have done the maiden on Friday. We had lots of low cloud around it was really hazy. All went well. JRV flies like it should. Straight and fast. :D

A bit late some would say but in March 2024 we had a fun filled weekend in Springbok, attending the annual NASA fly in.

Saturday morning we went out for breakfast to Kabies se pan. What a treat !
