The Bat Hawk R
Click Above for the picture gallery.
These are photos of the new "Rat. Hawk"   ( Rotax powered  Bat Hawk)  This is a really awesome version of the Bat Hawk with very much improved performance and new UV proof NCB fabric. Much lower stall speed and faster top speed.
 
 
The JK-05 Junior (JK 05) & Topaz KR 030 (Topaz)
  share exactly the same wing profile, however there are significant differences.
 
At a glance they look similar, however they can be easily identified from far as the topaz has no wing strut whereas the JK 05 does have wing struts. The JK-05 is a single strutted wing with full span flaperons as opposed to the Topaz which benefits from a full cantilever wing that includes separate flaps and ailerons. Both aircraft share stick mounted push-button electrically controlled flap and trim adjustment.
 
The other significant difference between the two pertains to the JK-05 having a it's 70 litre maximum fuel capacity accommodated behind the seats in 2 x 35 litre interlinked composite tanks whereas the Topaz is now available with 2 x 50 litre wing tanks that include a 7.5 litre reserve holding tank under the floor substructure. The cockpit dimensions are identical although access to the JK-05 is through a centrally split 'gull-wing' type Plexiglas canopy as opposed to the Topaz which features forward folding doors.
