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.

However, shortly after the turn was completed, control of the aircraft was evidently lost. Charles Ligeti made a 45 minute first flight on 25 April, However, so far the project has not come to fruition. Last edited by Red Runner; Jan 07, at The project was moved to a hangar at Essendon Airport, Victoria, and Charles hired several people to help produce the aircraft. 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.

All servos are installed before the wings are attached to the plane. Thanks for your interest my friend. The pilot later advised that as the engine failed, the aircraft’s pitch stability decreased to almost neutral.

Will be following this one too. I ran out of time last night and was unable to finish, so the build goes on. Wish I was going to be at the field tomorrow, but I had Monday off and I’m working tomorrow.

The pilot considered that either the engine was not delivering full power or that there was extraordinary drag associated with lateral gusts of wind. The prototype had a kw hp three-cylinder Konig engine.


I love the design of the airplane and I will try again soon to give her another go. Yes, you are right. This pipe has a flexible hose attached which delivers low pulsation pressures from the crankcase to one side of the diaphragm within the mechanical fuel pump.

All parts are cnc routed from 9mm depron.

Llgeti weather conditions at the time were fine, with light winds. 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.

Ligeti Stratos type oigeti possible? This site was established to support the development of the worlds first Open Source manned aircraft. I maidened the Straos this afternoon and I was unhappy with the flight characteristics. It has survived Not only five centuries, but also The leap into electronic Typesetting, remaining. 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.

It is at post Horten Flying wings Special: The current work of Ron Ligeti.

This configuration is called a joined wing and a boxwing. On the 45 the wing is so big it needs to ligtei cut in two pieces.

Parts should be here tomorrow. Distribute the plans at no charge. The single-seat all-composite joined-wing ducted fan Stratos micro-light was conceived into combine the efficiency of a canard, the large wing area and small span of a tandem wing configuration, and the strength of an externally braced biplane. You could kigeti it down all the way with full back pressure and the nose would just mush along.

Then we get to see if it will fly. It’s plenty strong and I’ll have to see what the AUW is when it’s done. On the original a vee groove is cut from the factory.

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 something better. You want a strong joint here with no voids. The original prototype was still airworthy and in the hands of the Ligeti family inby which time the Stratos was revived by Christopher Alan of Casa de Oro, California, USA, with assistance from Ron Ligeti, son of the designer.

Ligeti Stratos Scratchbuild Ligeeti in ‘ Scratchbuilding! I buried some of my plane’s wiring inside before xtratos up.

This model is based on dtratos real Stratos designed by Charles Ligeti. Thanks Ian for the kind words. FlyteTimeJul 29, I’m slowly coming back to where I was a while back with my interest level in the hobby.

Hey guys, here’s my latest project, ligetj Ligeti Stratos. Both benefit from the rigid structure of the wingtips being fixed to each other. Here’s a few pics of the real plane and my progress so far. For more information and the historical events, please see the Blog section. Hey BB, yeah the Stratos got put on the back burner as I haven’t been feeling well with a serious health issue I’m dealing with.

For those ljgeti you that would like a Ligeti 45″.

Hopefully under 10 ounces. The undercarriage was a fixed tandem type with small outrigger wheels on the canard tips. My build order is a bit different. The 6mm is probably overkill but it’s all the long pieces of carbon I had ligsti. SukhoiLover63 nova and Wildthing like this.
