Design and development
The Jungster II was a parasol version based on the previous Jungster I biplane design, which itself was a scaled down version of the Bücker Bü 133 biplane. Plans were distributed by K&S aircraft supply.
The aircraft is a single seat, open cockpit, strut-braced, parasol wing design with conventional landing gear. The airframe can accommodate engines ranging from 85 to 180 hp (63 to 134 kW). The fuselage is constructed of welded steel tubing with aircraft fabric covering. The wing has a slight rearward sweep.
