The motorised ultralight sailplane Straton D8 Moby Dick was original driven by a Trabant or
Rotax 227-engine. The wood construction V tail design has fibreglass wingtips and weights
only 180kg. Like the D7 Mini Straton, the D8 was developed as a homebuilt motorised sail plane
in the Czech Republic. It is available in partial kits or factory assembled leading edges, wing
spars and ribs. Due to the low cost price, the Straton D8 is an attractive model for the homebuilder.
The D8 is not only built in Europe, but also in the U.S.A.
