sees another huge piece of news from the company. The first
Renegade Lil Rascal LS1 and LS2 aircraft will be made by
the same company who brought the world's first fully
aerobatic light sport to the market with their Lycoming
AE-IO-233 powered, Renegade FK-12 Comet.
Renegade has elected NOT to further their partnership with
the FK-12 European product favoring the superior and well
proven Lil Rascal airframe instead. Citing difficulties with the European
manufacturer and the U.S. distributor "the Comet just isn't
what we want to be involved with," says Doc Bailey.
Renegade has elected to build an all U.S. manufactured
airframe with Renegades well known expertise with the
Lycoming LSA engine configuration. This week Renegade
formally announces the new Lycoming powered Renegade Lil
Rascal models. The Lil Rascal LS1 and LS2 are Light Sport compliant single
and two seat fully aerobatic LSA aircraft.
"This is yet another bold move to bring a 100% America made
Lycoming Powered aircraft to the LSA market" commented
Philip Wyatt, Director of Marketing for Renegade.
We are so pleased to have had Steve Wolf deliver our
prototype S2 last Saturday. Steve has been commissioned by
Renegade to provide all the aerobatic instruction for each
new Lil Rascal purchased.
We believe that there is no one
on the planet with a deeper understanding of aerobatic
training than Steve Wolf of Wing Over Aviation. We will be
looking to immediately manufacture the Carbon LS1 airframe
with our two seat LS2 soon to follow by Air venture Oshkosh
2013 right out of our new manufacturing facility at Ft.
The Lil Rascal LSA will be revised into fabric over
carbon fiber construction and will be powered by the
Lycoming AE-IO-233 fuel injected, fully aerobatic,
electronic ignition engine. The Lil Rascal will be capable
of fully inverted flight and producing 124 horsepower in its
well-known Renegade Lycoming LSA configuration. The LS1 will
weigh in at or just below 650 pounds total empty weight.
This move adds another fantastic airplane to the Renegade,
Lycoming powered Light Sport aircraft fleet. Renegade seems
to be fully on track to make their plans of developing a
full range of fantastic American Made Lycoming Powered Light
Sport Aircraft. We know there is a need for a Light Sport
fully aerobatic aircraft.
