Airframe

Fuselage of the plane consists of composites sandwich shells where the main construction element is carbon fiber. This ensures the low weight together with high strength and toughness. The main part of the fuselage is 2.45 m (8 ft) wide center section with fuel tanks of total capacity of 75, 100 or 126 liters in the outer part of the stub wings on the center section. Fuselage is connected to the tail parts of classic arrangement. The stabilizer span is the same as center section width, which enables the transport of the demounted plane on a trailer or in the truck. Main landing gear consists of laminated spring gear and steering nose gear attached to firewall by bungee cord shock absorber mechanism. Hydraulic retractable gear is an option. In both versions the main gear wheels are equipped with hydraulic disc brakes. They are actuated by lever on center console, which also serves as a parking brake. Controls are standard - control sticks on both sides, in basic version with no adjustable rudder pedals. The flaps and trim control is mechanical with control levers on the center console.

The canopy frame is made out of carbon composite, which ensures high strength and stiffness. The ergonomic design supports the crew comfort. The inner cabin width is 115 cm (45 inch) which is the most spacious of light sport aircraft category. The acrylic glass canopy made by Swiss company Mecaplex supplies an exceptional visibility. The basic instrument set consists of air speed indicator, altimeter, magnetic compass, RPM indicator, oil pressure indicator, oil temperature indicator, and cylinder head temperature indicator.
