Help needed with SSDRs

Postby A Bleese » Sat Nov 13, 2010 6:58 pm

I'm trying to put together a list of possible SSDRs and, off the top of my head, can think of the following:

Affordaplane
Hart Bird
Zipster Biplane
Legal Eagle
ZJ Vierra
Dream Classic
GSAL Fokker Eindecker
Escapade Kid

soon to be joined by:

e-Go
CM Microlights unnamed SSDR

So, what can anyone else add to the possibilities?

Hi Adrian, the Zipster is actually an Ed Fisher design but may have been 'acquired' by Hart, I think Hart have an 'interesting' history. Ed has been around the US ultralight scene for many years and I met him once at Sun n Fun. His designs are well regarded and include the Flitplane and the Skylite (plans and parts available for both of them from Raceair Designs).
A few years ago an outfit called Ulravair cut down a flat six Corvair (a 60s/70s Chevy car) to a twin, basically similar to half VW engines. It never really caught on but in recent years William Wynne (of Corvair aero conversion fame) was going to take the project on and market some of the parts required in the two cylinder conversion, the idea being to work with Ed Fisher on making the Skylite a two cyl Chevy four stroke powered legal FAR103 ultralite. Unfortunately nothing seems to have progressed on that for some while so I guess the idea may well have died a death.

The Kolb Firefly has been mentioned a few times in our mag. I think there was a flight test report done some time ago. There are quite a few vids of various types on You tube.

Brian

You're spot on about the Zipster - designed by Ed Fisher, acquired by the interestingly historied Hart Aero but still one of the most gorgeous things I've seen within SSDR limits.

The Skylite looks interesting, too.

Oh, and the Backyard Flyer - that's a Part 103 aeroplane that might fit in.

A ?
Why don't you edit your first post to include the new additions? And perhaps indicate those that have been proved to meet SSDR rules?

SSDR Designs

Postby tom@covehouse.demon.co.uk » Mon Nov 22, 2010 5:29 pm

Hi

I'm looking at the Ragwing designs from Roger Mann in the US. Particularly the Ragwing Parasol (aka Rag-a-muffin) - this design has been around for some time. I bought the plans from Roger Mann and he has been very quick to answer my questions about modifications to meet UK SSDR requirements.

These, as the name suggests, are predominantly wood/fabric construction and replicas of various classics. Worth a look.
