The Ultra-Leicht Flugtechnik Speedy Mouse is a German ultralight aircraft, designed and produced by Ultra-Leicht Flugtechnik of Braunschweig. The aircraft is supplied as a complete ready-to-fly-aircraft.[1]

Design and development[edit]

The aircraft was derived from the FMP Qualt 200 and designed to comply with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight rules. It features a cantilever low-wing, a T-tail, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit under a front-hinged bubble canopy, fixed conventional landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.[1]

The Speedy Mouse is made from mixed wood and epoxy construction. Its 9.2 m (30.2 ft) span wing employs a GA-W 1 airfoil and has an area of 10.5 m2 (113 sq ft). The standard engine is the 100 hp (75 kW) Rotax 912ULS four-stroke powerplant. The aircraft was designed for aero-towing gliders.[1][2]
