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.

Weight without battery I got my dimensions from pictures and drawings from the web.
Ligeti Stratos Aircraft – Open Source Microlight Ultralight Aircraft
The is a good all around motor, easy on the amps with plenty of power to scare the birds at the field. It was joined as you have here. Go ahead and place strato order by phone and we will be more than happy to send it to you.
I could get good spins both left and right.
Hey guys, here’s my latest project, a Ligeti Stratos. For more information and the historical events, please see the Blog section. Actually it’s the other way around.
A two-seat Stratos strats expected to make its first flight in For me, it makes installing them easier. Good Morning, What size Pop and motor do you plan on using? I’m drawn to the unusual designs. The 6mm is probably overkill but it’s all the long pieces of carbon I had left. For those like myself who are interested in the 45″ version, I pass along the reply to an email I sent asking about when it would be ready for sale: FlyteTimeJun 1, Through the generosity of ligetl family of the late Charles Ligeti, and the active contribution of his son Ron, an accomplished aeronautical engineer, the Ligeti Stratos has been made available as what is hoped to be the first of a complete line of Open Source aircraft.
What were the differences between the two versions which already flew. The pilot considered that either the engine was not delivering full power or that there was extraordinary drag associated with lateral gusts of wind. It turned out very strong. Images View all Images in thread.
He subsequently advised that the aircraft was slow to accelerate after lifting off at 45 knots. Eliworm, for my 36″ Stratos, I saved the original foam parts, used them as a template, and cut new ones to use in the build. No plans were to be found as far liigeti I could see so I decided to do a total scratch build from ground zero. Discussion in ligwti Scratchbuilding! Parts should be here tomorrow.
Later more about the reason for the crash. The prototype version had successfully flown some hours. SukhoiLoverdangermouse63 nova and 2 others like this. Your control surfaces may need to be enlarged if the plane flies slowly Another way to make the controls more responsive would be to link the control surfaces via mixes in the transmitter.
The foam is 9mm so two pieces of scrap from the fuselage can be used. It is uncertain whether the aircraft suddenly pitched nose up or nose down, but all witnesses agreed that it then fell vertically while the nose swung in a pendulous motion. However, shortly after the turn was completed, control of the aircraft was evidently lost. The Sunny has covered alu framed wings, the Stratos has composite wings.
Also keep everything flat so as not to introduce any warps. Analysis of the modifications indicates that the most significant effect on the stall characteristics would have resulted from use of full span elevators on the canard wing.
Here’s a few strato of the real plane and my progress so far. I’m slowly coming back to where I was a while back with my interest level in the hobby. But referencing the other thread can be helpful in the construction of a Ligeti. The crash does not mean that the concept is not stable. The Stratos had an all-composites structure of Kevlar and glass stratoos skins over shaped rigid foam, with carbon fiber spars.
You could slow it down all the way with full back pressure and the nose would just mush along.
