Pik PIK-10 Moottoribaby
Mr. Carl Stude designed and Polyteknikkojen Ilmailukerho built the PIK-10 variant of the Grunau Baby II and the first single-seater powered sailplane designed in Finland. The basis of the project was Grunau Baby II glider OH-BAB. The machine was built with a BMW motorcycle engine, later re-powered by an Aubier & Dunne V2D 17-hp (a French 540 cc 2-cyl inline motorcycle engine, and finely re-engined with a 28 hp Pincard engine.
Nicknamed "Paukkulauta" ("Bang Board"), the sole PIK-10 (OH-PXA) flew first time in 1949.
The aircraft had seven owners during the next 20 years. The Korso Flying Club with the help of the Finnair Flying Club restored it in 1969. Before that the aircraft has got the wings of another Grunau Baby (OH-BAF).
The restored aircraft is on the show at the Finnish Aviation Museum.
