4 stroke 3 axis microlight

Postby skelly » Mon Dec 03, 2018 11:27 pm

Seasons greetings everyone.

After much asking around and discussion I thought I would post our question here in the hope that someone can give me a definitive answer to it.

Is it possible to have a 3 axis microlight taildragger that looks like a conventional aeroplane that can use a 4 stroke engine but still be classed as a microlight ?
I see 2 stroke rans, kitfox, avids for sale in the 3 axis category but none seem to have a 4 stroke engine apart from those that fall into the light aircraft category.
Hopefully someone can help.

Cheers.
Skelly.

I've tried really hard Mike, but can't find a Eurostar with a tailwheel. :lol:

The Eurofox microlight not only looks like the 'conventional' version but it IS the conventional version, with just a lower MTOW. If I wasn't such a fat b*@tard I'd probably go for the microlight version myself :D

Be very careful with the Eurofox Microlight.
A great aircraft, but the weight limitation is real issue.
