In 1955 Ray Stits designed the Flut-R-Bug, his sixth design. It was originally a single-place, mid-wing, nosewheel airplane and several variants followed.
 
The first Flut-R-Bug was the Model SA-5A, followed by the SA-5B. Stits also designed tandem versions (SA-6A and SA-6B) and then the two-place, side-by-side SA-6C. The Flut-R-Bug was typically powered by either a small Continental or Lycoming engine.
