Good evening again Ken.

Try electric.

I'm off to bed now so I'll leave you all with it.

Well it has to be the Jihlavan Rapid 200 which was being used for fuel cell tests by ENFICA of Italy.



This is an electric powered Rapid 200UL, which was formerly known as the Kappa KP-2UR (KP-5 identical but fixed u/c). Jihlavan now known as Skyleader!

Unfortunately many of these LSA manufacturers tend to change the product names, without changing the aircraft, save for minor upgrades.

If correct will have to be Open House as working today.

Good morning skwinty - you appear to be the only one around.

skytrain is correct and has declared Open House.

Since you are at work, are you able to play?
