There were five aeroplanes posted on 25 May 2010 and the Boyero isn't one of them.
Just Ctrl+F and type Boyero and you'll see it. RR

Yes it is, despite its classification as a LSA Another source refers to it as an ultralight.

Hi Ken.

French? Possibly an Aurore product. The Mini Bulle MB 02-2?

Afternoon Ken,

Sleep well and have a good Sunday Graeme !!

Dunno what the exact differences are and Graeme's call may well be on the money, but I think it looks more like the Souris-Bulle MB04 ??

Not Swiss LM and not the BAC Drone DA, but it does look similar!

Not a lot of info on this one, but it's a Polish Motor Glider

Hi Trevor...there is some commonality with the AMA motorglider? 1950's era rather than pre WWII?

Edit, I wonder, is this the ZASPL Osa?

Evening Ken,

Hmm, I'm a little lost on this one as there's so little data, it is on a well known (to me ) website, but I'm pretty certain that you know it and maybe have even used it, but in this case, the Data Section is full of question marks!!

The only positive thing I can say is that it was designed by an amateur Wieslaw Rogala after 1945

Funnily enough I was just doing a search on the Weissa motorglider when I saw your reply...sounds like it could be something designed by someone called Wieslaw?

but I'm pretty certain that you know it
I thought I was using the same one as you, but as there is no mention of Mr Rogala on it, maybe not!

Have you seen my edit above? I think the site may have changed, I found this one on a section devoted to amateur designers.

I'm just going offline for about fifteen minutes, I will put my light on when I get back.
