The New "SPORTCOPTER II" (SCII) has features like no other two-place on the market today! It has a roomier cabin (49" interior width) for better cockpit management not only adding comfort to its occupants but also giving a very generous cargo room behind the seats. The cabin is equipped with forced air ventilation and heat. The handsomely designed instrument panel is efficient and also compact. The fully glassed pod allows all wiring to be neatly tucked, out of the way, for complete protection. This panel can be as sophisticated as you would like including (EFIS) glass cockpit instrumentation. The cabin and engine of the SCII are completely enclosed. This gives the SCII added propeller efficiency, all weather capability, and effective protection of vital components. The Lycoming I0360 (230 hp) air cooled engine provides incredible power which enhances performance especially in hot climates. Owing to the SCII higher gross weight and the need for very rough-field capability, an incredible suspension system was selected for the main gear, furnishing maximum vertical undercarriage travel for absorbing extreme impact on landings. This system is also designed for slow speed, drop-in landings. The SCII is equipped with an improved version of our original unique caster nosewheel configuration which is found in other Sport Copter models. So in case you were to land in a cross configuration, touching down sideways, this self-tracking nosewheel will help prevent any type of roll over.
