I flew VH-CXS? for Hazair Albury and VH-DCC Max Hazelton in the early 60's and found them a delightfull aircraft to fly out carried more tha the C180's which we were flying at the time

The later version was fitted with a 250 H.P. Lycoming 0540
engine. Its shape was changed to make it a smart looking
aircraft. I worked on one owned by Trojan Aerial Spraying in
S.Aust. in 1962/3. It had quite an impressive performance.
I believe there were only a limited number made.

The Cropmaster was a modified CAC Wackett.
