For those who do not read German, here is a short english extract (but do go and look at the pages – some nice pics!)
“The Flamingo is a Carbon-Kevlar composite aircraft that was first presented by the Slovenian company TAF3 at Aero Friedrichshafen. This comfortable, easy to fly , 2-seater has an empty weight of 390 kg and can be used for ab-initio pilots. It has been designed to withstand +6g and -3g forces it is also suited for aerobatic flights.
The red/white aircraft, which was released in 2016 had a Rotax engine and a 3 blade Kaspar propeller. However, for their new green/white proptotype, Taf 3 chose the ULPower 350ISA (aerobatic) engine and the 2 blade variable pitch Airmaster propeller.
The UL350ISA is a 130 hp (@3300 rpm), Belgian 4 cylinder, aircooled boxer engine that reaches its maximum torque of 320Nm already at 2400 RPM. TBO for the Belgian powerplant is at 1500 hours.
The Slovenian aircraft builder really outclassed itself with their latest design. The cowling was perfectly adapted to the new engine and the Airmaster propeller is an eye catcher. The cabin is 85 cm which is exceptionally wide and has two comfortable leather seats. The rear seat is mounted slightly higher than the first seat, still allowing a good view at the carbon dashboard.
The ULPower + Airmaster combination are perfect match for this Flamingo. Together they are a state of the art example of how easy it is to fly with modern technology.”
