Hey guys, here’s my latest project, a Ligeti Stratos. This model is based on the real Stratos designed by Charles Ligeti. It’s an ultralight kit. After taxiing trials and several low level hops 5 to 10 feet above the ground, the pilot commenced the takeoff for the aircraft’s first test flight. This aircraft was intended to be the production version of the “Stratos” aircraft. The prototype version had successfully flown some hours.

But referencing the other thread can be helpful in the construction of a Ligeti.
The wing area was increased, this being achieved by moulding the wings with only a sandwich foam in lieu of the solid foam in the prototype. As my kit is on the way Very Cool Joe.
He subsequently advised that the aircraft was slow to accelerate after lifting off at 45 knots. He recalled a lack of elevator response seconds before ground impact. Then we get to see if it will fly.
However, given that the prototype appeared to suffer no adverse flying characteristics, it is possible that the modifications incorporated in the new aircraft had an adverse effect on the stall characteristics. Hi All, Paul Blymyer has released the 45 inch version of the shratos Ligeti he designed.
Inverted flight was a piece of cake. Last edited by eliworm; Jan 03, at That gave me a two part upper wing. FlyteTimeMay 29, Stability Specifications Pictures 3 views. Ligeti Stratos, help with Blucor design needed.

He then conducted a take-off, and operated in the local area for about 17 minutes. I suggest you keep a check on our website for the next few weeks as we’ll have it up for sale soon. History Posted in Articles by Christopher The all-composite, joined-wing, ducted liyeti Ligeti Stratos was originally conceived in by Charles Ligeti, of Australia. The first full-sized Stratos prototype was built between and The nose dropped despite the pilot’s counteracting elevator input.

The weight as it is now is only g so she’s gonna come in lighter than I thought. SukhoiLover63 nova and Wildthing like this.
Ron is the son of the designer of a small, but very remarkable airplane, the Ligeti Stratos. Ron is currently working on a new model.

Oct 17, General details General details Date: The foam is 9mm so two pieces of scrap from the fuselage can be used. However, shortly after the turn was completed, control of the aircraft was evidently lost. It had three-axis control, pitch control by elevator on fore-plane; roll control by ailerons on fore-plane and main plane, while wingtip split rudders provided yaw control when used differentially and acted as airbrakes when used collectively.
The 6mm is probably overkill but it’s all the long pieces of carbon I had left. The engine was test run and strip inspected and no fault could be found. Remember Me Forgot Password?
