One of the aircraft I had hoped to see at Te Kowhai last Saturday was Don Gray’s Super STOL XL ZK-DJG2. However I was disappointed.
But I didn’t have to wait long to see a photo of it with its new trim, as the Hairy Mole Rat was on hand at Tauranga on Tuesday 17 November to catch it when it flew in from Te Kowhai. The trim seems to be of patriotic Waikato colours.
This was our first XL model of the Super STOL which has an 18 inch fuselage stretch and is capable of accepting engines of up to 180 HP. ZK-DJG2 is powered by an 180 HP UL 520i engine.
