Burt Rutan Microlight canard et son moteur Lotus

Un premier vol en 1982

The Lotus MicroLight was apparently a technical success, but a marketing failure.  

Model 97 is a two-place, side-by-side airplane of the 300 lb empty weight class. It has a slightly swept-back canard forward and swept back wings with winglets at the tips. The aircraft was developed for the founder of the Lotus auto company, Colin Chapman.
