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.

Maiden possibly in the afternoon?

This plane could easily be built in a day but I will have to work strtos Tomorrow evening. Ligeti Stratos No no Work on the Stratos was halted a few months later, no further aircraft were produced. He is building this after his full-time job.


Are the back ones like a elevator and the front ones for turning? I had to add some nose weight and all I had was a small multi tool so I attached it with some Velcro until I can get logeti better. I’ve been wanting to build one of these for a long time. SukhoiLover and Wildthing like this. It’s made of DT foam with the paper removed.

Ligeti Stratos Aircraft – Open Source Microlight Ultralight Aircraft

Ligeti Stratos, help with Blucor design needed. The pilot considered that either ligeeti engine was not delivering full power or that there was extraordinary drag associated with lateral gusts of wind. Also, the altitude at which the flight was conducted would not have allowed the pilot time to make the necessary corrective control imputs following the stall before the aircraft impacted the ground.


Here’s a few pics of the real plane and my progress so far. Do you plan to have some of the wires inside?

It had three-axis control, pitch control by elevator on fore-plane; roll control by ailerons on fore-plane and main plane, while stgatos split ligetii provided yaw control when used differentially and acted as airbrakes when used collectively. One of the main objectives of the Open Source Ligeti Stratos Project is to encourage the participation of commercial interests in the project to make engines, instrumentation, assemblies, materials and services available to individual builders through a coordinated supply chain.

Ligeti Stratos – Nest of Dragons

On the day of the accident the pilot and his assistants had worked at the factory preparing the aircraft for testing. The prototype had a ligehi hp three-cylinder Konig engine. SukhoiLover63 nova and Wildthing like this. The engine mounting was lowered such that the ducted propeller was totally below the main wing and the lower part of the propeller duct was extended well forward to form a “channel or strake”.

Jim, What are you doing for wheels on this one? How did you get on with this model or did you set it aside? And since the 45″‘s wing is dovetailed, it will be even more secure. Disaster struck in September Jan 29, The first full-sized Stratos prototype was built between and Go ahead and place the order by phone and we will be more than happy to send it to you. This would have prevented the engine from achieving full power. Ligeti Stratos Scratchbuild Discussion in ‘ Scratchbuilding!


I suggest you keep a check on our website for the next few weeks as we’ll have it up for sale soon.

Actually it’s the other way around. Video coverage of the flight suggests a maximum height of about 75 feet was attained. WildthingJun 1, The canard strafos main wings had ailerons, and the main wing had flaps.

The fitting of a kw hp Rotec engine was also considered.

You could slow it down all the way with full back pressure and the nose would just mush along. The Sunny has covered alu framed sstratos, the Stratos has composite wings.

The pilot subsequently carried out a series of taxying tests, to establish the optimum position for the control column. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk:
