|The 2 seater Rotec was not completed from the
original owner Arne B.- so he sold it to a man who tried to fly
it, but soon had a motorcut and outlanding with some damage to
the plane. So a modelairplane-builder Lars and his son Willy at
Løten contacted me about the Rotec and I got them in contact with
the owner of the damaged plane. They bought it and repaired
it - and got it on the wings again. With the 35 hp Cuyuna engine
it was sluggish - but they later got a Rotax 503 on it. They also
made skis to it.
