Bailey-Moyes DragonFly

The Dragonfly was originally designed and built by Bob Bailey of Orlando Florida in 1993. It is a special application aircraft in that it was designed specifically to tow hang gliders aloft. The Dragonfly is a taildragger in a pusher configuration with the engine mounted above the wing and behind the pilots. Controls are standard stick and rudder. The craft is a factory built unit. Construction is aluminum tube bolt together construction covered in presewn dacron sailcloth. The wings use "ultralight" ladder construction featuring leading and trailing aluminum spars connected by compression struts. The fuselage uses a large main boom mated to the pilot area with aluminum tubing. The pilots are one with mother nature on this baby sitting out on the end of an aluminum tube with nothing around but air.
