Design and development
The 10 Dash Model 100 was designed as sport biplane that could be either bought assembled or for amateur construction from either plans or a kit. The first prototype 10 Dash 100 first flew on 6 October 1985. It is designed to have either a 100 hp (75 kW) or 180 hp (134 kW) engine fitted for example a 100 hp (75 kW) Continental O-200 engine. It is a braced biplane with wooden wings and welded steel tube fuselage and a fixed conventional landing gear with a tailwheel and a single open cockpit. An aerobatic variant, the 10 Dash 200, is powered by a 180-200 hp engine. A competition aerobatic variant, the 10 Dash 300 can be fitted with either a 300 hp (224 kW) or 350 hp (261 kW) Lycoming engine with a three-bladed propeller. The 10 Dash 300 has a longer fuselage and longer-span wings with full-span symmetrical ailerons. A tandem two-seat variant, the 20 Dash 300, also joined the family.
