Default "Draco" Super STOL Turboprop - EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 - ...

Links for viewing a recently finished Wigla Turbo propped conversion STOL:


If you are still interested at this point then here is a 20 minute video by the builder/owner of how he converted a Wigla to his specifications:

Guess I can't amend or edit the first post so below are two additional YouTubies on the original subject and builder/pilot. These are a little redundant, but they add an amount of good information and color.

Another quick video of the Draco arriving at Oshkosh. I would recommend starting at the 6:10 point in this 10 minute video. Anything before is just the miscellaneous travel scenes (not that interesting) . At the 6:10 point you can watch the cold start up of the Draco's turbine, followed by a take-off, flight into Oshkosh and landing on the scene.

Link below is Draco in action out in the wild. Interesting STOL performance in high elevation country. There is a surprise bit of action at the end of the day when hangaring the Draco.
