LAMBADA 13.7M Two Seat Motor Glider. I have to retire after 62 years of flying and gliding, and sell this lovely aircraft. Currently registered with RAAus but wasted as a cruising recreational aircraft, when it could legally be soaring with GFA. The Lambada is built as a pure carbon/kevlar composite sailplane, fully deriggable for trailering. The propeller feathers, and it has a Tasman electric vario with GPS, VHF, Bose Headsets and lots of instruments. It has delightful handling right down to a stall at 32 knots IAS, and just mushes down afterwards at 400 fpm. The takeoff run is short, and the 1000 ft/min plus climb gets you as high as you want, cheaper and faster than aerotowing. It has easy manoeuvring for 45 kt centering turns for thermalling, but the drag of the tricycle gear at speed limits fast interthermal glides. The 80 hp Rotax runs on the smell of a petrol rag, and starts at a touch anytime you need. This Lambada is fitted with large double slotted flaps rather than divebrakes, 20° for takeoff and thermalling, and 45° for approaches down to 40 kts. It sideslips with flaps for very effective glide control, but approaches are best done with the engine available. Compared to other powered sailplanes it is half their weight, and I can still move it anywhere myself. It’s hardly run in with 430 hrs total, and a steal at $58,000. Hangared at our residence on the Bombala Airport. Phone Barry Wrenford at 02 64 583 583, and leave a message if needed.
