:shock: :shock: "well I never" :D I for one had given up on the Jabi twin, I personally thought it was never going to get approval :roll:

Well done to everyone who persevered for such a long time with this project =D> =D> Now I hope the Jabi twin is going to be a huge success. (I think it deserves to be)

Cheers, Don.

Jabiru 2200 engines only. I don't think there is enough clearance for anything but the short, high revving Jabiru props...
