Thank you very much for all interested visitors. We had a lot of interest in our SD-1 and SD-2 although our demo plane has not been completely finished. We hope that our SD-1 Minisport club will grow up.
Thank you very much to our team and huge support from manufacturer Igor Spacek and all current UK SD-1 pilots especially Dave Cox.
The first kit of SD-1 had been finished by Dave Cox in April 2016. He call it “Little Minx”. It has B&S 24HP and it is in version TD (tail-dragger).
I had the materials kit, the quality was all very good, especially the moulded parts and the drawings were excellent. I spent 20 years as an aircraft engineer in the RAF so for me the drawings and
instructions were mostly straightforward, but I had no hesitation in contacting Igor if I had a question!
Performance with the 24hp engine gave me a cruise speed of about 65kts at 2800 rpm, burning 4 Litres an hour. Takeoff performance was ok and climb rate was around 500ft/min. By not having the ballistic chute my aircraft had a CofG at the fwd end of the stated
range so stability is
good and landing is not difficult, although having not flown a taildragger for over 20 years I am still trying to get it just right!
