Dyn’Aero sa MCR-01 Ban-Bi

MCR01 ULC


The MCR range of aircraft is a result of 20 years research and development by Michel Colomban and the modern manufacturing techniques developed by DynAero. Michel Colomban was for many years an engineer and aerodynamicist and was associated with Morane-Saulnier, Potez and Aerospatiale.


MCR-01 stands for Michael Colomban Revolution –(series) 01, a carbon-based evolution of the Colomban MC100. When first designed and produced marketing was aimed at the plans-built community. It was successful in Europe.


When Colomban conceived the kit version he decided it would be easier to produce if its structure was all composite with a metal skin on the wing. By slightly enlargening the wing, eliminating the flaps and incorporating flaperons, the designer saved weight, but the all-composite wing was stronger.


Many engines have been used including the 100 hp Rotax 912S and JPX.


Manufactured by American Ghiles Aircraft as the Lafayetti 4S, it uses the Rotax 912S or 914 engine.


The wing and fuselage skin is made from layers of kevlar and carbon-fibre sandwich, with the control surfaces constructed from foam ribs supported by carbon spars and fused to an aluminium skin. Fitted with a constant-speed prop, almost ¾ span double slotted Fowler flaps, and of composite construction. First flown in 1996, the MCR 01 ULM employed double slotted flaperons, but it was soon discarded for separate flap and aileron.


At Epinal, Dyn’Aero showed a new version of the Ban-Bi with a redesigned wing and tail, the longer wing being now 27.1 ft instead of the 21.7 in the 21.7 in the normal kit. French regulations required a lower stall speed and this wing reduces it from 54 mph to 39 mph.

MCR Sportster


The initial design program started in early 1994, and the MCR Sportster flew for the first time in July 1996.


The MCR Sportster is a side by side two-seater airplane with incredible performance and capability. Fast and agile, the VLA was specially designed to reach top speed while providing the most enjoyable experience to pilots.


The MCR Sportster is a very high performance aircraft, that can cruise as fast as 300 km/h with only a 100 hp engine, at very low cost. The Sportster has a direct control system and can be equipped with a choice of different power plants, but may also be fitted with other options including Ballistic Recovery System parachute, extended range wing tanks, and toe operated hydraulic brakes. Engine options include 80 hp Rotax 912, 100 hp Rotax 912S, 100 hp Rotax 914 turbo charged, and 80 hp Jabiru 2200.


The MCR Sportster is available in kit form in respect with the CNSK regulation (specific kit airworthiness certificate) or in the "experimental" category depending on the registration country.

The MCR CLUB is a direct evolution of the MCR Sportster. It is also a side by side two-seater airplane, it is designed around the same fuselage with an identical cockpit and engine installation.


The MCR Club appears for the first time in 1998. Its construction and design was developed in partnership with an Aviation club for its own use.


Equipped with a 80 HP engine and a fix pitch propeller, it is for intensive use in flight school operations or aviation clubs.


With a 100 HP engine and a constant speed propeller, it becomes an high performance airplane with fast cruising speed.

The MCR CLUB can be equipped with a choice of different power plants. Engine options include 80 hp Rotax 912, 100 hp Rotax 912S, 100 hp Rotax 914 turbo charged, and 80 hp Jabiru 2200. Other options including Ballistic Recovery System parachute, oil pneumatic under carriage (for intensive use), extended range fuel tanks in the fuselage (particularly for school or training operations), toe operated hydraulic brakes, and fuselage footsteps.


The MCR CLUB is available in kit form in respect with the CNSK regulation (specific kit airworthiness certificate) or in the "experimental" category, depending on the registration country.

 

In 1999, another WINGGRID demonstrator was tested by the French, and Christopher Robin equipped an MCR-01 with winggrid. A comparative study with a conventional MCR-01 and another equipped with Winglets studied by ONERA was performed.
