Design

The aircraft´s design is a result of long and careful developing phase conducted by the TL-ULTRALIGHT company.

The Sting S4 is a composite aircraft with engine located in the front. The primary structure contains 85% of carbon fiber for maximum strength and weight saving. The wing skin and fuselage is a sandwich of carbon and foam core, glued together with epoxy glue. The coating is then evacuated and cured in an oven. Highly stressed parts are made in an autoclave. High safety carbon frame with ROPS ensures crew safety, even in the case of the aicraft being overturned. Varnishing is done using white dual-component paint. The final design touches are made by vinyl foil covering.

Engine

Engine is the heart of every aircraft, and that is why all our aircraft are fitted with engines of the ROTAX brand - they have been tried, they have been tested and come with thousands of flight hours experience.

Standard aircraft fitting includes: Rotax 912 (80 hp), 912S (100hp) or 914 turbo. It is now possible to equip your aircraft with the 912iS engine with a fuel injection system. Propeller can be fixed or in-flight adjustable. You can choose from a wide variety of types and designs. The ideal choice of course is the in-flight adjustable PowerMax propeller.
