Planes & Projects

Planes:   KR-2S (building)

The KR-2S is sold by Rand-Robinson of Long Beach, California. Most KRS are using engines which are automobile conversions. Ours is using a completely rebuilt and balanced EA-81 Subaru Engine with Turbo with a silent chain/belt driven PSRU. The craft is a two passenger, side by side, wood & high temp pre-preg, plus carbon fiber & fiberglass over polystyrene construction. It should weigh in at about 550-600lb when complete. The cruise speed should be in the range of 150-160 mph. This unit is approximately 18 feet long and will have a wing span of about 21 feet.

I selected the plane back about 1997. Sue and I picked up a set of plans in about June of 2001. We started work a few months later, and we hope to complete the project this year, if time allows.
