Designed by Howell C. "Nick" Jones Jr, single place composite. Aerobatics capable. The original production engine was the AMW808FIG.

In 2011, all rights, molds, tooling and spare parts inventory for the Lightning Bug was purchased by MaD Aviation LLC. An original Lightning Bug, N44XM was being re-engined with a 100hp Rotax 912ULS to test this engine/airframe combination with a view to making a new Lightning Bug kit available, using this reliable four stroke engine.
