    I for one didn't respond because there are **** few ultralight biplanes out there. That and the fact that ultralights aren't really my cup of tea.

    One of the few ultralight bipes that I recall was the Hyperlight - a scaled down version of the Hyperbipe. I knew only one individual that had one of these but he loved it. However I'm not sure if the kit or the plans are available any longer.

    Another lightweight biplane you could look at is the Micro-Mong :ban:
    It's a bit smaller than the Acro-Lite and completely available as a kit.
    'Mong' does state that the Micro-Mong is not aerobatic, but.....

    Hi gang!!!!

    I must say to you that I appreciate all your comments, and when the bathroom of my wife is finished, I launch out in the construction of my biplane.....Maybe a Renedade ?????

    Thanks,

    There's also the Ragwing motorbipe, as well as the Special.
    I have the plans for the 'bipe, but there are some issues with them (poorly printed pages, incomplete info, etc.)

    Nice plane. Does it qualify as an ultralight in Canada?

    [​IMG]I know this is an old thread but how about The Raceair Zipster? FAR 103 LEGAL and designed by Ed Fisher!

    Plans available on Ebay. Subkits From Hart Aero are supposed to be cheap! They say they will be posting them any day now.

    P.S. I think I finally found my plane...:ban:

    I don't think the Stratos qualifies as ultralight (or even biplane?).

    OSKBES MAI – Aviatika–MAI–890

    The MAI-890 has always intriqued me. Designed by qualified engineers but hard to locate in North America.

    It would be my choice as an UL biplane.

    I once saw a little biplane (this was in Europe) whose wings were made from AN2 ailerons! Yes the big Antonov AN2, radial engined, monster-biplane. It looked quite well made and it may even have been built at a former Soviet aircraft facility, but my memory is hazy now.

    Nice looking airplane, but definitely NOT an ultralight, at least in the US.

    End rush hour traffic now! Legalize vehicular weaponry!

    I forget that Canadian regs are very different. My Fly Baby is a legal UL in Canada.

    Well, its ~172 lbs. empty weight might not be ultralight enough, nor the funny way its upper and lower wings are joined. :)
