The Icarus 1 was a 1971 hang glider.
The 1971 Icarus 2 was built in a powered version as the UFM Icarus II / Aeroplane ultralight.
The 1973 Icarus 5 is a rigid aircraft controlled by displacement of the center of gravity in pitch and by action of the control surfaces in roll / lace (a little like a fledge except that there the pilot is seated). It could be bought in the United States as a kit.
