Jerzy Krawczyk, in addition to Ekolot’s Junior and Topaz, has several light aircraft, cropspray, and sailplane designs to his credit. In creating the Elf he has employed composite sandwich and carbon structures to achieve the exceptional strength and durability required to pass UK BCAR Section ‘S’ , German and other Airworthiness Requirements.
The Elf meets all of
our original design criteria, is a delight to fly, and possesses
exceptional soaring capabilities.
JPX Polini Thor 200 EVO
Our prototype used the JPX 330 engine which, unfortunately, was withdrawn from production in 2006 after over 20 years in the market. This has now been replaced by the highly regarded Polini Thor 200 EVO.
The Elf employs full span flapperons, and airbrakes, and has excellent rudder/stick co-ordination. The NN17-18 aerofoil possesses mild stall characteristics and overall, the handling conveys a strong sense of stability and security to the pilot.
Elf XM Motorglider
Note: Elf XS performance to be confirmed after full evaluation.
Estimated cruise ± 80mph @ ± 5 ltr/hr
Transport and Assembly
The Elf can be
transported in its custom trailer and is a two-man 15-20 mins assembly. Controls
A special tool is supplied for pin extraction during disassembly.
If unloaded from a trailer, the Elf requires two-man assembly. If hangered, the Elf is a one-man arrive-and-fly aircraft which can be taxied out to take-off.
