Design and development
The aircraft was designed as a US FAR 103 Ultralight Vehicles two-seat trainer. It features a parachute-style high-wing, two seats in side-by-side configuration, tricycle landing gear and a single engine in pusher configuration. The standard engines supplied were the 45 hp (34 kW) 2si 460F-45 and the 45 hp (34 kW) Zenoah G-50 engine, although any light two-cylinder, two-stroke engine can be used.
The aircraft is built from bolted-together anodized aluminum tubing to save weight. Inflight steering is accomplished via foot pedals that actuate the canopy brakes, creating roll and yaw. On the ground the aircraft has tiller-controlled nosewheel steering. The main landing gear does not incorporate suspension and the aircraft relies on large tundra tires to provide this.
