Dragonfly with Tople £5000

This microlight made by Flylight is aimed at pilots who want to explore engine-off thermal and coastal soaring. It has an extremely efficient topless wing, fully faired trike and amazing retractable undercarriage. The engine is a 4-stroke and can therefore be reliably restarted in the air. It is powerful enough to climb at about 400 ft per minute with an 86kg pilot. The stall speed of 24mph means it is a very safe aircraft that can operate out of short fields. The cruise speed is fast enough at around 40mph and since it sips fuel at 2.5 litres an hour, you can easily get 5 hours of flying from the 20 litre tank. Although 10 years old, the aircraft has done only 150 hours flying, and there is a full service record.
