Vancraft Lightning


Originally marketed as the Vanvraft Lightning, the  Lightning comes with most of the Vortex components. The all triangulated airframe is built of large-diameter aluminum tubing, with a truly remarkable suspension system and the finest control system in the industry (Roto-Control) We have designed a new composite seat to ensure unparalleled pilot comfort and crashworthiness. Up-grading to a partial enclosure is easy. The new shock mounted rotorhead and independent toe-operated hydraulic disc brakes are standard.

A step-by-step video is included with the assembly manual. The instructions and components are so complete it requires only 40 - 60 hours to bolt together using basic hand tools. The Lightning uses a Rotax 503 with oil injection, and a 2.58-to-1 reduction gear box delivering 52 horsepower.

A unique feature on both the Vortex and Lightning is float capability The Lightning must be equipped as an experimental model with a 67-hp engine for this feature, but it typically operates as an ultralight with a 50-hp Rotax 503. Top speed is 63 mph with the ultralight or 80 mph with the experimental. Conforming composite seats, nosewheel suspension and independent disc brakes also come on the Lightning.
