This is a very cool aircraft company that definitely shows that a little guy can make good in this industry.

Preceptor's Bob Counts is an airplane guru who has brought a number of exciting ultralight, single-place and two-place designs to the market... and we're sure will be bringing even more in the future.

Bob's Stinger is basically a parasol-winged version of the taildragger Pup series, powered by a small, four-stroke TEC engine. With a tractor configuration, the Stinger has a 17' fuselage, 5' height, and a wingspan of 30.5'. The Stinger has a 122 sq ft of wing area and a stall speed of 27 mph.

With the 50-hp TEC in the nose, the Stinger has a top speed of 90 mph and a cruise speed of 80 mph. Takeoff requirements are only 100' while landing needs only 50' more. No runway hogs allowed at the Preceptor Family Ranch, let me tell you.

The Stinger has 10 gal of fuel on board and has a gross weight of 650 lbs. The empty weight is 350 lbs, leaving 300 lbs for pilot and go-juice. The service ceiling is 12,000'. The Stinger is a metal-and-fabric airplane employing a stout pre-welded fuselage and metal wings. A 250-hour build time is expected for the kit. This bird has the same fuselage as the N-3 Pup but with a slightly wider front fuselage and other changes made to adapt to the parasol configuration.
