Ramphos Aircraft Ramphos
Ramphos is an amphibious boat-shaped flying hull with wings made of anti-UV mylar of 15 sq.m mounted as standard. Wings up to 21sq.m or a new strong foldable wing (tested +6/-3G) can be mounted. The 15sq.m wing is manufactured in Treviso, Italy.
The hull is a triple "V", stepped to enhance its rough and glassy water performance. It has a retractable tricycle undercarriage, which enables it to be taxied from the beach to the water and is also suitable for ordinary airstrips.
The machine is powered by a 582 Rotax two-stroke with a three -blade Warp Drive propeller with nickel inlaid edges for operation from water sur-faces. The propeller can be two or three bladed, made of wood or composite material. The propeller ring functions as a protective as well as an anti-noise device. Engines can range from 50 to 80 Hp (Rotax, Hirt, etc.).
