Light Sport Aircraft Pilot is a directory of aircraft that generally fit
into what are described as ultralight aircraft, advanced ultralight
light sport aircraft, experimental light sport aircraft, experimental
aircraft, amateur built aircraft, ELSA or homebuilt
aircraft in the United States and Canada. These include
weight shift aircraft, more commonly known as trikes,
powered parachutes, and powered para-gliders.
Snedden M7 ultralight, experimental
lightsport, amateur built aircraft.
The Snedden M7 is a new type
of fixed wing ultralight aircraft that is more exciting,
powerful, stronger, and safer and is equipped with a new
type of people friendly control system.
The Snedden M7
is truly the ultralight reinvented with many new features,
concepts and look that defy comparison to any other aircraft
or ultralight vehicle. The M7 ultralight is now undergoing
revolutionary new ultimate thrill machine has a 3 second
ground roll, awesome climb angle, high maneuverability and
controllable straight ahead stall characteristics with no
tendency for wing drop. People fly for fun and the Snedden
M7 is number one!

The 254 pound maximum weight
limit is the most defining element, and of greatest concern
and challenge in the development of an advanced ultralight.
This is something that I take very seriously and am very
enthusiastic about in the development of the revolutionary
M7 ultralight using strict logical design guidelines,
selection and development of the lightest and strongest
structural design concepts, ingenuity and numerous
innovative special features.
The M7 is a very durable,
cable braced, four wheel, float optional, complex low aspect
ratio mid wing, semi compact, short take off ultralight
design with upsweep wing tips, an unmistakable large
inverted V-tail equipped with anti-servo flaps, a (3) three
second ground roll and a very steep climb angle with the
wing chord at 45 degrees to the horizon. The M7 is a two
blade tractor (70 inch diameter Powerfin ?F? type with 2.6:1
cog belt reduction) powered by the 65 HP, 6300 RPM, Hirth
3203, dual ignition, 625 ccm two cylinder in line, two
cycle, oil premix, air cooled engine with Al-Nikasil
cylinder bores, dual carbs forward slanted and reed valves.
As impossible and wild as this may seem to most of you out
there, this new benchmark extreme fun machine completely
conforms to FAR 103 and A/C 103-7 and in some very advanced
and safety enhancing ways. No other type of fixed wing
aircraft construction can offer the extreme power to weight
to strength ratios that are perfected in the Snedden M7
The M7 will play a very
important part in elevating ultralight aviation to becoming
the peoples best and only choice in personal recreational
aviation and in becoming the worlds greatest power sport.
It is widely believed that 40 HP is the maximum achievable
engine size without going over weight in fixed wing
ultralight designs currently available. It takes about 25
horsepower to just get that ultralight into the air and the
remaining 15 HP is all that is left for serious climb,
turning and maneuvering especially in any down drafting
air. The Snedden M7 has a serious surplus of 40 HP
(65-25=40) which is 2.7 times greater than 15.
The thrill will seem 10
times greater to the ultralighter and to onlookers who will
take notice of the visibly exciting new era in aviation that
is only possible with such perfected ultralight construction
and design. Faster airplanes cannot use such light weight
high strength construction due to wire noise and drag which
are negligible at ultralight speeds. For this and many
other reasons airplanes or light sport aircraft will never
compete with the thrill of the M7 ultralight design. The
Snedden M7 is the first new or fourth generation ultralight
flying vehicle whose specification, capabilities and
features will foster a new thinking and defining of reality
about personal recreational flight in a language that speaks
to a much greater percentage of the population..
The M7 will mark the
beginning of a trend in personal aviation that will
overwhelmingly favor advanced ultralights, where aircraft
selection will be based on vehicle purpose, comparative
data, the vehicles specifications, performance,
maneuverability specifications, (minimum turn radius, angle
of climb, power to weight ratio, etc.) fun ratings, minimal
regulations, costs (purchase, training, storage,
maintenance, fuel), personal schedules, storage and flight
area types and access, etc. The M7 raises the bar and
establishes a new benchmark not just for others in the
ultralight industry, but for those considering light sport
airplanes and airplanes where people essentially fly for fun
rather than piloting for business purposes.
