Great stuff John.! Look lets face it the savannah's beauty lies in what it can do. Sort of similar to a series100 landy or a humvee the pc6 is also like that. I would like to get one of these when my ship comes in.

do you know when this will be available as a kit and will it be avail in the xl version?

Hi AndyCap

Sorry about the delay, I have been away for a week.
The Taildragger is available now. Only in the Savannah S version (the S has the same cabin size as the XL)
I am considdering importing one as a demo. Waiting for performance figures from the manufacturers.
Price is R 10 000 more than the S for some reason. We will be ordering the next container load of kits in a few weeks if your ship does happen to arrive.

Regards

John

Vernon. Nor does your dog, but I am sure that you love him!

Performance figures substantialy the same as the Savannah S except for ground handling of course. Have submitted engineering substantiation to CAA and awaiting response. Note the lengthened tail. Quite nice looking I think Vernon.

Hi John. Is the TD version convertable back to a trike? Orwill it involve major surgery? It would be ideal for resale since there seems to be a bigger market for trike gear so being able to convert it would be a bonus. I would prefer the Tailly though :)

Cheers andrew

Hi AndyCap

Unfortinately its not a Sportsman. Cant be switched easily, but possible with quite a bit of bolt and rivet work from one to the other.
