Pilot - - FLIGHT TEST -

The SD-1 can be bought and built in var­i­ous for­mats. These in­clude: un­der­car­riages fit­ted with a steer­able tail­wheel, cas­tor­ing or steer­able nose­wheel; and en­gine choices (both two- and four-stroke) rang­ing in power from 24 to 50hp. There’s the stan­dard canopy, a bub­ble canopy and the XL cock­pit, which can ac­com­mo­date pi­lots up to 2m tall. In the UK the MAUW can be up to 245kg. Kits range from ‘Ba­sic’ (es­sen­tially just the main spars and plans) via ‘51%’ and ‘Quick Build’ op­tions up to ‘Ready To Fly’. Pric­ing ob­vi­ously varies ac­cord­ingly and sig­nif­i­cantly.
