The taildragger aircraft uses a large tapered low wing, with a large horizontal tail surface mounted close to the trailing edge of the wing. The fuselage is welded steel tube construction with fabric covering. The wings use wooden spars and ribs with fabric covering. The 185 hp (138 kW) engine can lift a 1,000 lb (454 kg) payload. The five seat cabin can be converted to cargo operations and allows loading through a pair of oversized gullwing cabin doors.
