Gilbert DG2
 
 Gilb-DG2-01
 
Constructed as a DG2 it was registered to Lowell J. Slatter, Buhl, ID on 18 June 2011 with new c/r N390DG. Originally designed and built by Dan Gilbert and incorporating the lessons learned from his DG-1 (last raced by Charlie Greer as Miss B Haven), this aircraft has a fuselage similar to Nemesis but significantly scaled down and with a ventral fin to raise the tail wheel up. Lowell had done considerable developmental flying and enlarged the rudder to improve directional control.
