PH-3X3 LiteFlite Dragonfly C c/n C89 - MLA-airfield Stadskanaal in Holland - 3 May 2008 more Ultralight aeroplanes

The LiteFlite Dragonfly C is a single-engine, two-seats-in-tandem, high-wing, strut-braced, open cockpit, three axis ultra light aircraft which has a slow flying speed, is very manoeuvrable and extremely strong. The Dragonfly was developed in the late 1980s specifically as a hang glider tug for use in flatland areas where hang glider flying, which usually relies on hill launches, was not possible. The Dragonfly is constructed from 6061 grade aluminium tubing, is structurally supported by stainless steel wire and has fabric covered wings. The aircraft has been in production by since 1990, first as the Moyes Dragonfly, named for the Australian manufacturer of ultra light aircraft and hang gliding accessories Bill Moyes. The Dragonfly is available as a complete aircraft or as a kit for amateur construction. The original model Dragonfly is powered by a 64 hp (48 kW) Rotax 582 two-stroke powerplan. The Dragonfly C is an improved model powered by a standard 64 hp (48 kW) Rotax 582 two-stroke engine, with the 80 hp (60 kW) Rotax 912UL four-stroke powerplant as optional engine. The Dragonfly and Dragonfly C aircraft has been variously produced by Moyes Microlights, Bailey-Moyes Microlights and currently by LiteFlite of Botany, New South Wales, Australia, all different iterations of the same company. Over 100 Dragonfly aircraft have been manufactured and sold to more than 12 different countries all around the world.

The 2005-built Liteflite Dragonfly C c/n C89 was registered PH-3X3 in the Netherlands as a Moyes Dragonfly with M.J.M. in 't Groen, Hellevoetsluis, on 9 June 2005. The Dragonfly is used for towing hang gliders into the air at MLA-airfield Stadskanaal. The airframe is powered by a Rotax 582 UL DCDI engine. On 7 December 2011, the registered type of the aircraft was changed into LiteFlite Dragonfly. On 3 May 2008, the Moyes Dragonfly C PH-3X3 was photographed at the MLA-aerodrome Stadskanaal in Vledderveen, the Netherlands.
