In the development of small-aircraft Bakeng Deuce American aircraft manufacturers rely solely on the support of the aircraft by the private owners, and despite the fact that the production of these aircraft was not enough mass in the production of this model is to this day.

The simple design, high reliability of the controls and the power plant, as well as the low price attracted future customers, however, over a 45-year period (from 1970 to 2015), only 120 aircraft were built.

On board the aircraft Bakeng Deuce can accommodate only two people - a pilot and a passenger, while the aircraft is not designed to carry passengers, because the maximum range of its flight is only about 700 kilometers, while the maximum developed speed of all Only 225 km / h. The presence of a small space on board an aircraft is one of the big drawbacks of this aircraft. American aircraft builders initially tried to create an upgraded version that could carry up to four people aboard, but later had to refuse, since this would have significantly increased the cost of the aircraft.

However, due to the high maneuverability, the plane is quite suitable to perform aerobatic stunts. The fuselage of the aircraft is well hardened, but the absence of cabin itself does not affect the security, but at the same time limits the maximum lift height.

As a power plant on Bakeng Deuce aircraft, a four-cylinder Lycoming O-290 piston engine is used, which is quite reliable in terms of its operation, and inexpensive in terms of maintenance. The power plant of this aircraft is capable of developing power up to 150 hp, which is quite enough given the limitations created by the design of the aircraft.

Due to its small size, the plane has a minimum aerodynamic drag, and therefore significantly reduced fuel consumption, however, due to the small fuel tank, flight distance is very much limited.

During the year, the US aircraft company «Bakeng Deuce Airplane Factory» produces from the 2 5 to airplanes of this model, however, gradually declining trend in demand, which, in all likelihood, during 5 years may lead to the termination of the release of the aircraft.

Among other things, based on the model Bakeng Deuce was once Implemented release biplane with aircraft performance characteristics similar to the original model, however, because of the continued lack of demand, production will no longer start.
