Haig, who developed the American Eagle American Eaglet, designed this kitbuilt ultalight which with tip extensions has a claimed L/D of 30. Conceived with a sustainer engine turning a small propeller in the gap between the rear fuselage and the rudder and built almost entirely out of foam and fiberglass, the Minibat is not a self-launching design but intended, after launch by auto-tow, winch or aerotow, to provide a positive rate of climb with its chainsaw engine.
