Any news on the Just 103 ultralight?

Last video I saw was August 2017, Troy said they'd finish and start flying it in two weeks. That was months ago, but no news?

Anyone know about the new design?

TKS, I have been very interested in the 103. After OSH 2017 I started calling down to the factory every couple of months, and was told that it had not flown. I then spoke to Gary and indicated to him that I wanted to see it fly and if it did what Troy thought it would do, I'd like to be one of the first customers. Gary told me that the ribs were going to be stamped aluminum. Typical Just spars. spoilers for control. NOW this is just rumor, and I'm not going to reveal my source, but there may be and issue with the spoiler only control. Troy in his video with Dan Johnson states that using spoilers saved 12 to 14 LBS. So if they have to revert to the traditional system that puts the close to the 256# limit. Another way to save a few pounds would be to use Oratex 600 covering.

As far a the engine, the Palini Thor 250 looks to have all of the requirements that Troy will need. Here is a link the Belite's review if the engine: ... weve-seen/

If anyone else has info, I would as well like to hear it.
