Default New Drop Plane flight test

Banzai Skydiving's newest: Scratch built 12' Telemaster. 24 sq ft of wing, 40 pounds, DLE 111 twin. Flies great! First flight NO TRIM!!!
The plane was kit-bashed into a Tele-Porter a Pilatus Porter lookin telemaster. Should carry multiple guys with no problem. Takes off in about 20 feet.

Nice Tele-Porter there, Banzai!!

How many jumpers are you planning to haul at one time?

We might bring it if we bring my trailer. Frank's mini van is too small.

We plan on a three jumper module, but it could lift 5 or 6. It flies very lightly on the sticks.

Looks Good,

I was considering that engine for my Giant Telemaster. There was one at Joe Nall with a DA100.
I thought you could turn the exhaust straight up and not need a long pipe to keep the exhaust residue off the jumpers.

I have a ZDZ 80 and will probably go with with that for now.

great minds ...... I have turned the engine over. The DLE is a strong engine. I flew the plane at 1/3 throttle.
