Marcel Jurca incorporated many Jodel components in the design of the MJ-2 Tempete. The Tempete is a cantilevered low-wing monoplane that can be fitted with engines ranging in horsepower from 65 to 125. The standard version is powered by a 65-hp engine. Another common version powered by a 90-hp engine cruises at 120 mph and climbs to 3,280 in three minutes. It can perform aerobatics without loss of altitude.
