This IMA size airframe is perfect as a tug, but also a joy
to fly and see!
Accurately reproduced with its typical shape, and has great handling.
The strong flaps will allow steep return dive, without acceleration, and
land at your feet to get an other glider to tow in the air quickly.
A pure pleasure to fly!
with a 80 to 150cc engine it will fly like a trainer. It features large flaps,
and a nice scale touch with the sliding door, that allows access to a
large storage, where you can install a camera for example.
The kit includes the two release mechanism for aerotowing.
Electric tug is also possible with now the famous
Plettenberg Preadator 30-8,
it will tow 25-40lbs gliders to sky's limit.
This Pilatus has proven to be
a great tug for gliders up to 55lbs.
