“SUPER-CYCLONE” kits are a replica of a Cessna 180-185 offering the same advantages with improved performance. The kit is an all aluminum construction. The performance increase comes primarily from a longer wing, an extra foot per side at the root of the wing, not at the wing tip, thus a longer flap, better STOL, cruise, payload and fuel capacity, without reducing aileron control.
