Thanks to The OZ Report for the following information:
The Elytre is a simple ultralight glider being designed and built by ...
The design is intended to be foot-launched, car-towed, aerotow-launched, or with some other assistance.
The glider is being constructed of carbon and foam fiber. The wing structure is covered in carbon; the rudder and stabiliser are fully molded pieces. The fuselage is a collection of cross-sectional pieces set in place along the keel tube, with the forward section covered in a carbon skin. The wing folds into 4 pieces: two rectangular pieces each 4.5 m long, and two trapezoidal pieces 3 m long. The center section above the wing is removable, allowing access to fittings and the reserve parachute.
The Elytre is equipped with flaps, allowing for the performance necessary for a foot-launch. So, it will fit under FAI Class O-2.
As of September, 2003, the builders have moved into a new location so they can begin construction of the wings.
The glider is still in the initial construction phase, so there are no pictures yet.
