Maule M-5 on Floats with Micro VGs

Hi There!

I own a bunch of fly-in fishing lodges.

I don't fly commercially, but use my private license to access my outposts on floats to fly myself, friends, and staff in to do work and bring in supplies. Recently I bought a Maule M-5 on floats 210 HP Fuel injected.
It is 40 years old, low time, totally rebuilt 6 years ago and well maintained. I found it to be a handful after my Champs and Cessna's. Short wing and little glide. It is called a Lunar Rocket. When I cut the power I was thinking of calling a "Lunar Rock" !

Then I decided to buy your Micro VG's with the STC. Best money I ever spent. It is like getting a brand new and improved airplane. These things should probably be on most airplanes.

  • Better aileron control and firm feel at very low airspeeds ( at faster speeds too)
  • A LOT more glide on final and flare
  • Off the water in half the time and distance
  • Climbs faster
  • And it does NOT fly the same speed: It flies several mph FASTER. Go figure.

And bonus: it took me and a friend less than 5 hours to install. Best instructions I have seen. Great templates and other materials.

Feel free to quote me.

Thanks so much for a great product, that turned a pretty good floatplane into a great floatplane.
