 Thanks to Mark Langford you can see a fantastic  table he put together at http://www.krnet.org/kr-info.html , which
lists various KR engine, airframe, carb, and prop combinations that are
working for others.  It's not a definitive guide, but it's a clue as to
various performance levels that can be expected.

 



This Web site features the challangers of purchasing someone elses partly finished Kr2, and trying to make it into a safe and enjoyable hobby and project. My technques are from the KRnet and tips I've gathered from research and from experience. ANY MODIFICATIONS ARE NOT APPROVED BY RAND ROBINSON.

My Kr purchase

My Kr came from BoxHill in Sydney, some 7 hour drive from home, at the time I did not know anyone that could come with me to inspect it, so I took the chance and inspected it with my wife. It looked like a good buy with only a minimal amount to finish. ( So I thought, looks were not as they seemed) The things that  made it attractive, were Diehl wing skins, and tricycle undercarrage with disc brakes, canopy, turttle deck, cowls and prop. Also the choice of two VW engines,

But I later found that I needed to make new Wings, Canopy, Turtle deck, Tail feathers with Dr D's hinges ,front deck etc, etc. So I will list my building project as I go.
