Dries van Vuuren's Plansbuilt W10 Tailwind

Having built two RVs I needed a real challenge so I decided on the Tailwind.

Two years and 2400 hours later, the Tailwind took to the sky on 29 March 2014. This cheeky little airplane is a delight to fly and comfortably cruises at 160 knots on a 160 H.P Lycoming turning a 70x75 Sensenich prop.
