Design and development
The RK-6 was designed to comply with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight rules. It features a strut-braced high-wing, a two-seats-in-tandem enclosed cockpit under a bubble canopy, fixed tricycle landing gear and a single engine in pusher configuration.
The aircraft forward fuselage is made from welded steel with a wooden laminate covering in the cockpit area, with the tail boom made from aluminum tube. The tail surfaces are built up from aluminum tubing, strut-braced and covered in Dacron sailcloth. The wings are wooden, produced by Arvydas Vaicekauskas and equipped with Junkers style flaperons with flap deflections of 20 and 40 degrees. Its 10.7 m (35.1 ft) span wing has an area of 12.5 m2 (135 sq ft). The standard engine available is the 64 hp (48 kW) Rotax 582 two-stroke powerplant. The aircraft can be flown without the canopy fitted, if desired.
