    There are 3 Protec PT-2's for sale from the same person on Barnstormers right now. Maybe there was 4 and this is one of them, lol

    There are YouTube videos of PT-2 flying without the issues described by the seller. The company has long ago went out of business and wouldn't buy one but I think there is something wrong with this particular airplane.


    PS - with an exhaust installation like in the pics, that further makes me more suspicious of the seller and not the plane, lol

    One of my old EAA chapter's members up here in New England has two Protech PT2's (in various states of disassembly.) Rumor has it they had one of the worst airfoil choices ever. But "inherently unstable," wasn't one of the complaints. Sounds like the one flown by the ebayer didn't pass W&B.

    The Protec wing construction, and airfoil, were quite odd. Looked like the Rear spar was deeper than the front spar.... I imagine it had quite a pitching moment thru various speeds....

    Harry Riblett claims that PT-2 owner Ken Rogers built a replacement wing using Harry’s GA 30U-613.5 airfoil and increased the top speed from 90 to 110 MPH, and reduced the no-flaps stall speed from 60 MPH to 45 MPH. Article in Harry’s book and in the March -April Contact magazine.

    BMCJ, wasn't that Bill Buethe's aircraft? I believe he owned the rights to the design. Was the plane pretty quiet?
