They are not new, its an option. The stall is a mile or two lower but apart from that, some guys prefer the look.

Bushbaby no 45 -- V5-UOL
Aircraft completely stripped to bare metal.
All frame etc rust protected and resprayed- new seconite and professional painted
All bolt , nuts , washers etc replaced with new from Kitplanes
New bungees ,tires-- windscreen and doors new
Complete new wiring done.Some gauges replaced with new ( eg oil temp and intermittent hobbs )
Engine is Jabiru four cylinder with water-cooled cylinder heads with radiator moved to sit
under cockpit and electric circulation pump.
Fly hands off from first flight for near to four hours after rebuilt and temperatures run in green ( can
be nicely controlled with manually switching of water circulation pump as needed)
Small finishing touches to be done and GPS to be installed
Was a stressful eight months of rebuilt to get materials etc but my son Pieter is a happy chappy today
regards
Johan de Wet

Hi Stefan
Jong ek twyfel nou sterk oor die nommer.
Sal ou logboeke nagaan en vergelyk
Maar sy vlieg damn lekker
Julle mag maar BOS BABAS bou

Stefan ek het een vraag -- die sitplekke is leer en sit gemaklik maar ek wat kort is druk my kop skeef
teen die skuins strut / pyp van agter na voor. Is daar n beter oplossing9( kyk op die wiite se foto sit die piloot ook skuins kop )

En kan jy my n koste gee vir n hidrolies rem stelsel -- Net voorsien ons sal self insit.
Die drom brieke is niks werd en net gewig wat jy saam sleep

groete

Johan

Leopold

As jy belangstel kom dadelik Swakop toe
Hier is nou Dawid Visser ( Namib Scareways ) se geel een mer n 582 enjin en Pieter
sin mer die Jabi enjin. Jy kan beide gaan vlieg.
Die 582 se syfers is dieselfde as ons sin - spoed - gewig optel etc.
Jy sal nie weer een kan kry soos Stefan nou het vir daardie prys nie.
Wys jou net self doen is nie altyd goedkoper as om dit deur Stefan of Boet of Jean te laat doen nie

....Johan, wil Dawid verkoop of bedoel jy die verskil maak nie saak tussen die 582 of Jab nie? ek hou nogal van die 582, dink hulle probleempies is redelik uitgesort? Ek hou BAIE van die een wat Stefan nou het, sal net beter brieke ook posit, wil plaas toe vlieg, so benodig stop krag :D

Hi Johan, Ek het gesien julle het limo seats daar in. Die beste is om los kussing te gebruik direk op die fiberglass.

Ek het n tweede handse (met baie min ure Matco sisteem) stuur my 'n e-mailo dan stuur ek die pryse. info @ saplanes.co.za
