DIEHL XTC Ultralight: info wanted

I've just become the new owner of a Diehl XTC ultralight that first flew in 1989. It was designed by Dan Diehl in the USA in the early 1980's and was subsequently produced in kit form in Australia.
I would like to make contact other owners / previous owners of these so I can "pick their brains" prior to first flight and first water ops. Also keen to get hold of any photos / articles or any other info that may be floating around.
If anyone can help please drop a line or PM me.

Thanks in advance----

diehl xtc

I have a diehl xtc Serial #02. Ive been looking for some one that knows some thing about them. I havn't flown mine but have it hung as a display in the hanger. Some day I might fly it if I can find some info about them. I do have the full construction book and some other info. Let me know if you find any thing about the planes.

Does this aircraft come into the SSDR (single seat de-regulated) category?

Hi billm
I've just picked up on your reply regarding the XTC. I hope to fly mine for the first time this week (weather permitting) so hopefully will be able to report back on how it goes. I have a reasonable amount of info that came with my XTC when I bought it; both construction notes and newsletters / personal correspondence from Dan Diehl back in the late 1980's. What info would you like? Send me a private message (more chance of me receiving it!).

Cheers---

XTC info

We too have recently acquired an XTC- good news, we have an early version of the manual! Please contact us, as it would be great to have someone else to discuss with.

Plans / blueprints were never available for the XTC. They were sold as a kit consisting of premoulded components for the hull and mainly raw materials for the remainder of the aircraft.

Hey there I've just become the new owner of a Diehl XTC as well. Did you ever find out any info on yours? I have very little info on mine and I am searching for some. Have you flown yours yet? Very interested in finding others with more info and other owners. Thanks for sharing any knowledge you have about the XTC. Roger
