Jodel D-18 ZK-JVG

Returning from another flight is the Jodel D.18 ZK-JVG c/n GM05 at Rangiora

Note the flaps and also the change to a two bladed, Brent Thompson, wooden propeller. In fact that is Brent doing the flying, with the builder/owner Graeme Main in the flight engineers position.
See earlier pic with three blade prop

This project was begun by Bevan Chamberlain close to nine years ago. It was picked up by Graeme Main about eighteen months ago and has advanced quickly since then. Here it is having fuel flow test done on its Rotax 912S engine. The propeller is a threee bladed adjustable Woodcomp.
In the background is the VW powered D.18 ZK-JPK2.
