Rans S-6ES Coyote 2

The S-6ES went into production in April 1990. It is the second generation of the original S-6 design. Increased wing span through a fuselage re-design resulted in improved performance and appearance. The ES denotes "extended span". The design goals that the S-6 achieved represented a significant advance in quick-build kit planes. The S6ES series takes this goal even further. Using all pre-finished parts and pre-sewn skins, the build time averages between 250 and 300 hours on the smaller engines. Coyote II's can be built in the confines of an average garage using normal shop tools and skills.

RANS offers two different wing sizes for the Coyote II.  The standard wing is constant chord and 34.5 feet in span with constant chord ailerons and flaps. Area Two wings use the standard wing with larger tapered ailerons and flaps. Take off and climb performance is best with the stock wing. For 10 to 15 MPH higher cruise consider the 116 wing. Stall is increased by 5 to 8 mph and take off roll is 60 to 100 feet more. The standard wing is best for floats and high altitude applications.
