(PZL-104) was developed by PZL in Poland to
serve the military as a reconnaissance aircraft.
Its unique appearance with his huge radial engine, makes it stand out among both modern and vintage
aircraft. This is definitely not
just another high wing monoplane. Its
reputation as a tow plane in both the full scale and modeling worlds is
legendary. In Europe it has been
used to tow 3 full-scale single place gliders at one time. In the late 1990s the
PZL-104MA Wilga 2000 family was developed with Lycoming
flat 6 cylinders engines and with improved aerodynamics.
It was decided to make a scale reproduction at
1:3.5, a size that had two advantages. First the ability to use an
efficient power system that has a great weight to power ratio, and ideal
for aerotowing. Second, keep the size reasonable so it is still fairly
transportable in a standard van. After a year of designing and building,
this exquisite kit was ready. Thanks its large cowling, motors up to
200cc can be used without problem. For normal sport flying an 80 cc
engine is plenty, thanks the lightweight construction of the airframe.
Unique is also the scale leading slat, which comes as an all moulded
piece, and substantially improves the handling. The all moulded
fibreglass fuselage is easily outfitted with the precisely cnc cut
bulkheads and wood parts. The wings and stab are built-up in the RSS
(rib-spar-slot) technology. Knuckle hinge ailerons and fowler flaps are
of course there. The elevator is removable for ease of transportation.
All moulded landing gear fairing and and wing tips are completing the
kit. The spring-loaded scale landing gear has also proven to be everyday
worthy and withstands quiet some abuse during the tows. With this Wilga
2000, you not only will have a rugged tow plane but also an accurate
scale and with easy handling every day flyer.
