Kingsford Smith Avitation Services KS-3 Cropmaster Drawings


The aircraft:

Following on from the sole KS-1 and KS-2, the KS-3 was the first production version of Kingsford Smith Aviation's Cropmaster.

The KS-3 featured the pilot in the original front seat position of the Wackett, with the hopper moved to the location of the original rear seat.

The first KS-3 airframe (which was also the KS-1 prototype and the KS-2 prototype before being converted to the KS-3 configuration) has been restored and is on display at the Queensland Air Museum in Caloundra. Their website includes a detailed history of this aircraft.
